So I made a vision board (my last blog post) of all the things I want to accomplish before the new year. It’s kind of like making a New Years resolution list, but since I’m a short term goal list maker, I do better with short term goals. Several of my goals have lasted for years some even my whole life, (i.e. Being a good wife, and a mama to earthly children), but short term goals, (painting landscapes and architecture for a change) or (photographing birds for the blog post I promised a few people a year or so ago…) are easier to accomplish for me, since having kids isn’t really something I can accomplish right now. Maybe someday, though. 🤗
It’s good for me to have short term goals because it makes me less idle. Like it’s something I really, really have to get done. Not that it would be the end of the world if I didn’t, but it would be disappointing. And I don’t wish to disappoint my readers. Though at this moment of blogging I doubt I have very many readers. Since I’ve pretty much put it on the back burner for nearly a year now.
Oh well. No matter. Moving on.
So here is my collection of patches, I thought you all might enjoy seeing. I may or may not be missing one or two. When I buy them I’ve gotten into a bad habit of just laying them anywhere instead of putting them in the box I keep all the ones that aren’t sewn on. Yes, I sew and iron them on. Because I’m paranoid that they are going to fall off. And I hate it when they curl at the edges when they have been on for a long time.
Here are some of the current ones that need sewing on and some that already are:

The Grand Canyon Boot is still one of my favorite patches.
And the North American Hunting Club sent me a free huge patch nearly the size of my hand. 😜
I think I have a total of 46 patches, possibly 47-48? Not sure? I know I’m missing at least one. Just can’t find it. But I’m determined to find the missing patch. May have to take my house apart in the process but I will find it. 😂🤗
And that’s more elaborations on my patches goal/collection.
I’ll post my painting lists next. I hope you all have great week! My boss is on vacation until Wednesday and I’m gonna be working the front (cash register) Monday and Tuesday, so it should be interesting. Hopefully I won’t goof up too badly.
