Quilting is Reliable
This week has been very unusual and very busy but no matter what happened, I knew my quilting would always be there. We all worked hard to prepare for our Open House at school. When I got home I could work on a quilting project for awhile after supper.
On the day of Open House we spent about 13 hours at school. We taught class, had meetings, then had Open House. I went home and went to bed!!! Although I took comfort in knowing my quilting was there for me, I couldn't muster up the energy to get anything done.
Today I was in a workshop all day. I was fortunate enough to be there with several of my co-workers so we had some fun conversation, but it was actually quite tiring to sit all day. When I'm teaching, I am constantly moving around. I'm not used to sitting for so much of the day. At one point I found myself doodling quilt patterns and designs again. I talked to the people at my table about some of the ways I bring quilting into my classroom. Of course I just happened to have my camera with me and I was happy to show my pictures of quilts and scarecrows to the people around me. I also met a person who does some work with children with Huntington's Disease. I spoke to him about using a quilt for a raffle to raise funds for their organization. He is going to contact me.
Tonight was a birthday dinner for my dear friend. I will sleep well tonight.
Again I feel like I have to play catch-up on the weekend. I have not had a chance to check my e-mail or my phone messanges! I do know, however, that after I get up, put on a pot of coffee and put a load of laundry in, my quilting will be there waiting for me. My machines, my tools, and my fabrics will invite me to dig in and be creative. I will enjoy.
