Today is beautiful outside. Brilliant blue sky. Cloudless. Took the day off and hibernating at home, and having a busy quilting Monday. So fun!
Sometimes a person just needs a “mental health day” as my sister would say to do something fun and personal.
Today I did not listen to the news, or check social media. I put on fun music that I enjoy and opened the windows. The phone is off (I know – scandal right!).
I went through a pile of about 40 quilt magazines that were given to me, and pulled out two patterns. The magazines are now ready to go to the recycling bin in town when one of us heads that way.
Sewed together five rows on the mystery quilt. I love the colors but am ready to move on to another project. This one has taken way longer than I normally spend on a quilt.
Located a pattern I would like to make a wall hanging from next that involves stars.
Washed a stack of fabric that I traded another quilter for. She had some different spring type colors than I do.
My point is this:
If you have a chance to take a few hours or a day to just do quilt related activities, please do so. All of us need time to recharge and do something that fulfills us.
I used to think it was very selfish, but time has taught me that I am a better person, a better employee, a better spouse, a better parent if I simply take a short time for myself to recharge and relax.
Enjoy a busy quilting Monday (or any other day of the week).
