Quilt Making

For me, any creative endeavor is a stress release.  It’s always been that way.  And lately, I’ve really needed a release.

Had four paragraphs written here…  LOL  But you don’t REALLY need to know all the boring details, so I deleted them.

I’m busy.  I’m tired.  I need some ME time.  End of story.

So today I baked, I did laundry (which I actually don’t mind doing…  it can be a rather Zen activity), and I worked on a quilt.

I forgot about all the things that really NEED my attention, and just did things for me and for Lily-Ann.  The rest will all still be there tomorrow.  I may be a little more stressed for not having done the work that I likely SHOULD have been doing…  but I needed, more than anything, to do a little something for me and the wee girlie.  So that’s what I did.

my old Singer sewing machine, a few pins in a tomato pin cushion, a pair of scissors, and a piece of the quilt I'm working on.

    Sweet. I like this! : ) I feel the same way. Quilting is therapy. I am addicted. I actually get the shakes when I can’t sew for a couple days! lol : ) I wanna see more! : )

    • I promise, when the quilt is closer to completion, I’ll share more pictures of it. It’s based on a 3×3 piece that my aunt sent my mom. So far I only have six of the 3×3’s done. Got lots more to sew together before assembling the entire front panel… and then still have to decide how I’m backing it. LOL
