Counting the days

Keith and I are heading to GA on Sunday. We’re staying at the Ritz Carlton that Adam works at outside of Atlanta and we’ll see both boys and Becky. I love living here in Minneapolis but I do miss seeing my boys. Chris calls/emails frequently (very frequently) but Adam is the opposite and I don’t hear from him nearly enough.

Today (well actually yesterday) was one of those days I worked a series of small tasks – unloading and trimming a quilt, choosing fabric and cutting bindings for 3 quilts, cleaning off my cutting table, pre-cutting some Peltex for postcards, finding a bin to keep my postcard bit and pieces all together so I can just pick up and make one when I have the desire, layering my mini house quilt, and finally this evening sat down and started hand quilting it.

You know what’s funny? I’m enjoying these small projects so much I don’t even mind that my quilting isn’t all that great or that my crazy quilt isn’t very *artistic*. It’s unusual for me to not stress over my imperfections but its nice for a change.


  1. hooray for you! being able to enjoy the moment while you quilt (rather than stress yourself out about whether your work is perfect) gives everything you quilt a permanent glow.

  2. Have a wonderful time. We’re doing our Thanksgiving on Sunday, so I’ll be seeing my kids too. Even though we live fairly close, everyone is always so busy with life….

  3. I think I need to try some postcards. You’re having too much fun! How long are you going to be in GA? Have fun!! Your quilting is always so good . . I wish you’d quit stressing about imperfections!

  4. Mary have fun with your boys and DIL. My girls and GC will be here … can’t wait.Love your House Quilt … too darling. If I have time I’m ‘stealing’ your idea. LOL
