The joy of quilting
Let's see ... 17 year old child stressed out of her mind about going away to college; 21 year old child (adult) stressed out of his mind about graduating from college ... thank God for quilting!!! Gathered around my longarm this weekend and sewed away. Had the t.v. going, it was cold and rainy outside all weekend, and I even turned the heater on in the granny flat. It was nice and cozy! I made it a point to leave my cell phone in the other house. I have really been aggravated about being disturbed when I'm trying to get a quilt done ... then I realized ... Colleen ... you don't need to have your phone with you at all times. I think we are all so programmed to the fact that we need to be available all the time ... what if my husband needs me, or one of my kids? So I am never alone and always being interrupted ... not a good way to operate as I start feeling resentful. The compromise? Leave the phone in the house and when I'm quilting, check it every hour or so when I take a break.
