I have the next quilt on the machine but haven't done more than start stabilizing it. Just look at who came to live with me. Isn't he cute?
A neighbor gave him to me as a thank you for teaching her some sewing and cooking. He now rides on the top of my Gammill to keep me company while I work. Each time I look up he's there and makes me smile.
I call him Watchdog, because he doesn't do anything but sit and watch. I'm spending my days enjoying new found freedom from stress. I'm still quilting but I'm not living my whole life around a quilting machine any more. If I want to take a day off from quilting and spend the day teaching a neighbor how to sew or how to survive on food bank food then I can do that without stress over waiting quilts.
I'm still quite busy most days but it's a different kind of busy. The busy I feel these days has much more meaning and feels so much better. My journey back to a simpler life is going very well and I like it.
