Being a quilter in Central Oregon is heaven! We have 9 shops all within a 45 minute drive and they all have their own appeal. And now, I have added Portland to my quilting life! I will be sharing my shopping, projects, mistakes, successes and travels...all things quilt!...so come join me in my world of quilting, books, movies and restaurants!
I have heard of "menopause" and "manopause" but yesterday at work I learned about "mentalpause." After spending some time yesterday with "the friends" listening to their sage advice and reading an article that Sandy brought me called "Deadlines are Beautiful" I am taking a deep breath. I liked the idea of working on one old project and then switching to a new project, then an old project...then a new project. I need to take a breather from my Primitive Gatherings BOW and do something bright! It is not that I am not going to try and finish those BOW's this summer...or this year...it's that I need something different. I need to put the pop back in popcorn, the fun back in funny, the sex back in sexy...ok...I know, I am losing it with all these rules! I need to start playing in my sewing room. How did I lose my Mojo?...could 3 BOWs push me over the quilter's cliff???? When I got home from work I started rummaging in my drawers of UFO's, WIP's, PIG's and kits...and I found the perfect one! Since my schedule was wild with trips back and forth to mom's I fell off my Weight Watcher Mojo also. With this project I am going to get both WW and Quilting back on the fun side of life!
I had the pattern and the fabrics all together in a plastic bag...officially a PIG (project in grocery bag)!...plus, tonight I am invited to attend the Appreciation Dinner for volunteers of the Sisters Quilt Show out at Black Butte Ranch!!! The Fun is Back!!! I just have to get through today at work! So, since I am scheduled to call the colonoscopies for Fridays schedule...you had better have followed your directions and be home with I call! Cause I want to finish work and Parteeeeeeea!
