Well, It is a quilting blog so here is my latest finish... a simple free pieced lap with my freestyle quilting all over... I started it in July.... Sometimes my head fills with what I like to call " the static of being overwhelmed" ... I use the noise of the machine to quiet my inner "static" and try and recenter... Took me 4 months to do 6-10 hours of quilting... wtf? Somehow I am not able to get to my quilting as often as I would like..
I lately have been feeling like my life and its circumstances are slightly out of my control. Thats a bummer, but its not permanent and things change. Seriously, I have a feeling that I'm not alone. Times are tough all over. Lots of folks are a little extra stressed for lots of reasons.
I handle it as well as I can, I quilt when I can and let it out. Someone over on Flickr posted a comment and called it "insane" ... Doh! I guess the secret is out... :)
The one great Relief I get is hanging out with fellow quilters talking shop, sewing, goofing around. Light, meaningful interaction - full of support, great advice and a liberal dose of silliness.... Thanks Ladies!
So this Thanksgiving goes out to you! Thanks! Your Awesome and I hope your MIL gets drunk early and falls asleep! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
A special shout out to my Westie-Besties Faith and Kim:
You guys Rock! I'm super grateful! I'll be dipping my breast meat in gravy and thinking of you! :D
