This does not always work out. As I had learned a long long time ago there is a time and a place for everything. (As for a place for everything, would someone please come get me reorganized ? lol )
We as quilters find this all the time. We find a pattern, we find the fabric, we find the time. We sit to work on the quilt and 9.5 chances out of 10 our goal gets postponed. Our pieces are cut wrong, our seams are not sewn correctly, our sewing machine acts up, the phone rings, smoke alarm goes off and the door bell rings all at the same time when our quilting is going along perfectly!
As quilter's we find that going with the flow, no matter how rough it gets sometimes is the best way to go. We tend to stop quilting when everything seems to be going against us. We know it is time for a break from it. When we return to the quilting the things we found that were giving us problems are no longer an issue. We just needed that 'time out'.
Many hours have been spent in prayer, asking many others to pray with us and for us and them. We have lost sleep, we have adjusted schedules, we have postponed our 'to do list'. We have done what needs to be done and the rest had been spent wrapped around this new little wonder in our lives.
Today is the first day I'm semi back to normal. For me it is a day off work. A day I normally would spend in the quilt studio. And, yes, I will get there yet today. I have quilt labels to make, a small wall hanging to quilt for a customer and another one to load onto the longarm. But what I'm looking forward to most is the time I will get to spend with my daughter and tiny grandson.
