What is an Indian wedding with out pomp and show and months of preparations? That is exactly what kept me busy for last few months. My sons wedding. Quilting was the least of my thoughts in last several months and now when all is settled and with an addition to the family in the form of a daughter in law, I am all mentally physically settled now and yes! back into quilting.
A few months before I even had a thought of selling my sewing machines and umpteen loads of fabric , notions and every thing quilt related to lead a more peaceful stress free life. But then I realized that there is no such thing as ‘stress free life’ unless I become another ‘Buddha’ and leave my quilting empire and head to forest.
But then I realized I may need to make one more last quilt to cover my self in the forest,then there were a few students waiting, a competition just announced, a group of friends from the quilt club motivating, I realized it is less stress quilting than being enlightened.
So now I am back into the same rut of folding and unfolding fabric scarps ,cutting tiny squares and rectangles and restitching them into one piece again, rewinding the unruly spools of thread that run marathons in my small studio,picking and unpicking the seems from two inch squares, ironing the fusible web to later find out that the iron just transferred the residue to the front of finished quilt ,making new designs and hoping no one will copy it without giving me credit or no one would have thought of it earlier than me, finding no time for exercise.
But I am not stressed! I am quilting.!
