This has been one of "THOSE" weeks. Besides the usual crazyness of a school week, I've had negotiations meetings, union meetings, mentoring meetings, meetings with parents, and a school board meeting. This hectic schedule reminds me of one of the many reasons I love quilting. Quilting can be done for hours or days at a time but you can also work on quilting projects for minutes at a time. I truly appreciate this aspect of quilting when I have such a busy week. I can come home and play in my studio for a few minutes or even an hour before I drift off to sleep.
Quilting settles me down. It relaxes me and gives me time to contemplate the things on my mind. Everything looks better after you've quilted. I have solved world problems and even revamped the educational system while I quilt.
I believe people are fortunate to find something they love to do. It's a bonus if you are good at what you love to do. I am extremely lucky because I have found two such things --- teaching and quilting. Of course it's even better when I can find ways to incorporate quilting into my teaching curriculum.
