Kathy from Kathy's Quilts
asks the hand stitchers what are our thoughts on long term projects.
It is a slow process with no deadline.
It is a companion I can go to and play with when I am bored, stressed, trying to get away from the noise or just as an excuse to sit down for a bit and relax.
It keeps my hands busy when I get the jitters. Or just to slow down before bedtime.
It recharges my batteries so I have the energy to finish the day or whatever task I don't want to do right now.
It is a balm of peace for my busy overactive mind. Giving me the time to put order in the thoughts, to ponder over things or events and to learn the lessons I need from them.
It slowly becomes a friend ... kinda!
Or like a grandma ... old and wise. Things are only worth as much as the time you put in.
Today, this is where I'm at.
Need three more dark blue diamonds. Then, on to the next row which is a light coloured row and it is number 30!
What will I do when it is done?
I will miss it! But at the same time, I can't wait to wrap it around me and listen back to all the things I've told this quilt. So many memories are stitched between these little hexagons ...
And then, I'll start another one !! :^D
If you are working on a hand stitching project, join us at Kathy's place
. So many things to see. I'll be there for sure.
Until next time ...
