I have finished two more designs and they are going off to the quilter on Sunday.
I had no idea that turning my quilt ideas into real quilts would make me so tempestuous.
The excitement is peaking when you first start cutting into the first bits of fabric. By the time you put the last border on you are asking yourself, “Did I just waste 4 days making this quilt?” “Is this the ugliest thing you’ve ever seen?” The next thing you know, you are in a rotten mood and even the thought of making dinner makes you want to climb in bed and pull the covers over your head.
If you just walk away and stop looking at the quilt, a few days later you MIGHT be thinking, Hey this is kind of cute, it does work….I think???
Has this happened to you?
ENTER DREAMWORLD: where all my quilt heroes like Lynda Hall (Primitive Pieces by Lynda), Terri Degenkolb (Whimsicals), Linda Brannock, Jo Morton, Jan Patek, and the Buggy Barn girls, and I have a slumber party. They would share all their “getting started” stories with me and make me feel better. Then we would eat a whole pan of fudge and popcorn… EXIT DREAMWORLD.
Until all the ladies call me, I have to settle for The BG telling me to keep going.
Yesterday we spent some time in the park that is approximately 20 steps from our house. What a blessing to have a park 20 steps from your house! The girls and the BG threw a football around and Sony chased sticks.
Sony is an expert stick chaser.
