Stale..........dull...........stagnate.........tired........uneventful...........no enthusiasm..........in a rut..........something needs to change.
These words describe some of what I have been feeling lately. I love my quilts and quilty projects (which are many), but I seem to be getting tired of it. I have always been a creative person with many many other interests.
I used to paint pictures, I used to do mosaics (I have a little house full of dishes....yes really!), I used to travel around and junk hunt (yes, it is the thrill of the hunt), I used to re-do antique pieces and work on getting my 100 yr old house finished. Soooo many things in my house have gone neglected.
I've become lazy in my housework (quilting was MUCH more important!) and I have piles of boxes and items I am struggling to go through and figure out what to do with.
In less than a year I have cleaned out 2 whole estates in 2 different towns. One of these being Mr. Brown Dirt's dad's house. Both houses got sold before we even listed them or even had them cleaned out, so we had to fast and furiously get them cleaned out.
I am pooped and now get up every morning looking at the STUFF piled and stuffed all over my house, including stacks under my carport (can get my pickup only half way under it).
...........sigh.........what to do with it all.........
All this being said, I think I will get by beee hind up and out of my quilting chair and do something else for a change..........in fact, I've already started. I needed the change. I must go outside, leave the quilting cave and be adventurous again.
Maybe I will share some of my new creative endeavors.........maybe something soon.
In the mean time, below are a couple of photos showing the progress with the hand quilting I'm
doing on my Clamshell quilt.
It's already looking soft and all crinkly without even being washed yet. Maybe the new batting I am trying out.
