We're taking it easy today. You know how coming back from a sick day or a short vacation from work and everything is up for grabs? That's how it was at my house. Once I felt better I had to face the mountain of dishes, laundry, unpicked up litter in the living room and dining room etc. Instead of basting my two newest quilts, I cleaned house and washed dishes and then pooped out for the rest of the day.
Now that things are under control, I can return to the studio...but I am not in the mood to quilt. I am still wanting to make new stuff. Mostly I don't have a felt need to quilt the newest works. If you recall last February's QAWM, I imagined that someday someone will be the executor of my estate and will discover a huge Rubbermaid bin with my unquilted tops. I fantasize that they will be overjoyed with finding them. (Hey, it's my daydream) So I may just add these two new ones to the bin, and if and when I need a big nap quilt, I will have them all ready to quilt.
Or I could just order some backing fabric and then feel the urge when it arrives. Either way, I am not going to do anything with them right this minute.
What I am admitting to myself here is that the process is more enjoyable than the product. I love the thrill of the designing and construction. When that disappears I will be ready for the slag heap.
