Thank you all so much for your kind words of condolence. It was heart-warming to hear about your mothers too! I feel like so many of you–that she is always with me now–especially when I quilt!
Easing back into a creative routine has been challenging. I picked up a quilt sandwich and was surprised to see how difficult it was to FMQ! I felt clunky and uncoordinated and couldn’t develop any rhythm. Over the next several days, I stitched aimlessly on quilt sandwiches, letting my mind wander and pretty soon I got in a “groove” again! Whew!
Quilting can be therapeutic. How many of us have used quilting to keeps our hands busy through tough times!? I imagine pioneer women stitching away as they worried about their children and families, the weather, food…
Of course, it’s no different today!
While the quilts are lovely, it’s the process that is the most comforting! I love to hear the sound of my sewing machine, feel the fabrics, enjoy their faint scent…
Small things–great joy!
What about YOU?
Have YOU ever stitched away your troubles?
Have YOU ever lost your creative fervor? How did YOU get it back?
Do YOU enjoy the process of quilting as much as the end result?
Do YOU have a “quilting angel”?
We’d LOVE to hear!
Again, thank YOU for all your support!
