I wish I had lots of time every day to sew. I still work full-time so I only get a couple of hours in the evenings, if I'm lucky and don't have errands to run for my grandson who lives with us. Weekends are better since I tend to do only the absolutely necessary housework (priorities, after all) and spend six to eight hours in the quilting studio on Saturday and four or five on Sunday.
Next year, I am planning to retire and hope that frees up more time for my passion.
You commented on one of my wedding ring photos that you were surprised that I had done two double wedding ring quilts. Well, I got a call on Sunday with someone commissioning me to do another one. Of course, I said yes. Not sure when I'll get her fabric (we're shopping together for the fabric), but she has no deadline for completion. That's a good thing since I have many UFOs and 9 quilts to go on the longarm.
Hi, yes it is HOT! I was home today but ended up falling asleep this afternoon! I was planning to sew on Blueberry Jam from the new Easy Quilts magazine. So I'm going to work on it tonight. I have a part time quilt shop job and that means I add to my stash pretty often. I got the Frolic pattern and a few fabrics for it yesterday then I'll add from my stash. Good to hear from you! I'm happy for you to get to go to Houston. I've only been to the Chicago one because my DD lives there, and I love to go with her. I have lots of in progress quilts, but I like to choose what to work on depending on the day. I don't sew every day, do you? More later!! Laurie
Thanks for your comments about the wedding ring quilts. I loved working with the John FLynn templates and would make another one any time.
As to patience, I guess God finally answered my prayers. For many, many years, I often prayed for patience (usually adding "and let me have it now.") Guess I grew some patience while I wasn't looking. :-)
