Christmas morning brought many wonderful gifts for quilting – a couple of new feet for my machine, some fabric, some fussy cut rulers and a new rotary cutter. I also got a 2011 Desktop Quilter’s Calendar by Debby Kratovil and Jean Ann Wright. It has quilts and blocks of inspiration for every day of the year. Even though we are almost 2 weeks into the year I finally got it opened today.
We’ve been on the road again and away from home. However, as I noted in my last post I did get to The Sugar Pine Co. and I’ll mention a few others in days to come.
The calendar reminds me how quickly the days are going by, how very quickly time rushes past us. That’s one of the things I love about quilting – it is a wonderful way to spend time. It is time slowed down, concentrated in an effort that is both satisfying and productive.
As well quilting reminds me of the time when a quilt was made, when pieces were cut and brought together in a project, I remember the effort of each part and often a new learning in it.
I’ve been wondering where to put my desktop calendar – I suppose it could go on my desk at work – that’s the logical place, but would I get any work done……. So many patterns, so much fabric, so little time to quilt!
