Planning-schmanning

Today, I was supposed to drop a quilt off at the long-armer, and get a full-steam-ahead green light on my next quilt. A girl quilt, another triangle quilt, a Christmas gift. With fabrics I already own.

And then…my plan jumped the rails and I ended up with a whole new set of priorities. I still have a quilt and pillow to to get to the quilter…on Friday. I still have a gift quilt in the beginning stages…but oh it wasn’t in the plan.

And you know what?
When I started brain storming just the right fabrics for that boy quilt (the one with fabrics I’d actually have to hunt up and buy) I got so dang excited! This new plan is just as good as the old plan. (maybe better!) This new plan is just right for right now. I’m going with the flow.

Some days shifting my focus doesn’t come this easy or sit this well. Some days I have to be dragged kicking and screaming from my path. I’m so glad today wasn’t one of those days. I’m so glad today was a day to throw planning out the window and run head long into the unexpected! I want to remember that can be great too; that I can embrace it, it can be good.

Here’s a sneak peak of that unplanned something…(I’m super duper excited!)

What unplanned something has you excited today?

I believe that when I  learn to embrace these smaller hiccups in *my* plan (can you hear God laughing??) – I can also cultivate the ability to do it again and again on the bigger, scarier ones. Because there will always be bigger, scarier unplanned things to come. I want to be ready. How about you?
