A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
I’m having a hard time getting 2015 started. Here it is almost the middle of January and I can’t seem to get my year going. I believe I’m just overwhelmed with the large number of “want to do” and the “really should do” items on my lists. Grandma Mama would have said I have too many fire pokers and no fire. So I need to start a fire.
I read books. Lots of books.
I watched quilting DVDs. Several of them and a few movies too.
I put a quilt on the machine that I started way back last spring. I thought I would have it finished to give as a Christmas present. Didn’t happen. Maybe it will get finished in time for next Christmas.
I fondled fabric. I cleaned. I cooked. I reworked some of my many lists and printed those. I even started removing the fabric from my vintage love seat so I can reupholster it. There are thousands of staples in it and every single one of them must be removed. That’s a very slow process.
Nothing is affecting me in a way that says “pick me, pick me” yet. So I go through each day bouncing from one project to another. A little of this. A little of that. Something will happen. I know it will. It always does. I just have to wait until it happens. This year it seems to be taking longer than usual.
