After 12 years of quilting for others (and loving every minute of it) it dawned on me I had stopped sewing/quilting for myself. We're talking years since I've had a "start to finish" moment. I've started a few (OK more than a few) that now sit in drawers waiting to be finished. I "finish" quilts for other people every week but NEVER my own. I feel blessed that I get to do what I love for "work" but I realized I've lost the passion in doing it for myself. My fun hobby has turned into a job.
After a year or so of asking for a rain check I took my friend AnnMarie up on her offer to go with her to her Modern Quilt Guild. Last night I headed out on a new adventure. Oh my goodness I couldn't sleep I was so excited!! I had so much fun, I saw old friends and met a few new friends. I thoroughly enjoyed the guest speaker and can't wait to go back. I'm motivated to start making the time to sew/quilt for myself again. I can't wait to see what the next few weeks brings!!
Thanks for the awesome night out AnnMarie!! (look what I learned to do! You motivated me in more ways than one, lol)
