My goal was to finish hand quilting ‘Wishing You Good Will’ before summer set in. I am far from that happening. With the warmer weather here, the sun high and glorious I am finding it harder and harder to sit myself down and work on ‘Wishing You Good Will’
First of all, Good Will, you are massive and bulky and heavy and warm, so warm. You and the Sun are in a battle for my attention “Come wrap your self in my love and quilt me” Good Will calls. “Come and play in the garden with me under my spring time rays” Sun taunts me.
I have found so much to distract me from staying on course. You must forgive me if I decide to stop and take in the beauty around me (on my morning walk)
But I am making progress – slow but sure and the lure of your beauty brings me back to you.
You are the colors of this beautiful spring in the northwest ~ but
You must forgive me if I decide to curl up with a good book instead of quilting
Or if I decide to take a walk along the stream bank instead of quilting
Or if I mow the lawn instead of quilting
Or if I water the gardens instead of quilting
Or if I swap veggie starts with a friend
Or if I chat with a grandchild instead of quilting
Or if I visit with a neighbor instead of quilting
Or if I decide to bbq instead of quilting
Or if I put out peanuts for the stellar jays
Or if ……I simply do absolutely nothing but take time to be thankful
