The passion is back!

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)
