Sometimes, or maybe most of the time, life tends to take up my quilting time. Lately, I have had to do the yearly “get ready for taxes, organize the paperwork, and get the files together for this new year”. I even had the continual “hunt for lost receipts” time sucker.
I know that I should be quilting. I want to be quilting. I need to be quilting. Life just sneaks in and before I know it, my time is gone and another day has ended.
Other more enjoyable life stuff has taken my quilting time. I went to Bend, Oregon on a quilt shopping/x-country ski trip. I should have stayed home. The thought of missing this adventure jump started me, and so, I had a great time. (Who could turn down shopping at Sew Many Quilts, Quiltworks, or the Stitch n’ Post?). Certainly, not me. I even connected with a great friend while in Sisters, Oregon. I always find it amazing to have those quilters I have known and connected with for over thirty years. It was delightful to see her and share a bit.
The weather was fabulous, the skiing was great, and the shopping? Need I say more!
I also have a pup that is taking up a great amount of quilting time. She is four months old and weighing in at forty pounds. I hope she begins to mellow soon. I am not sure who is more hard headed, Aspen, or me.
Well, I need to start quilting while the pup is asleep. Just wait until I share great finds from the shopping trip!
Keep quilting! And by the way, found this quote I thought was priceless, “That moment when you realize your children have your twisted sense of humor– And you don’t know whether to be proud or scared!”
Thank you for all your great projects for me to quilt. Sue
