Truth be told....
I'm a little weary!
Am I the only one that feels this way at times?
I look back at when my last blog post was and ask myself,
"What is wrong with you lady?"
"Get it together already!!"
So I've been pondering why I am feeling this way.
I think this last year's grief has taken a toll on me.
The piper is coming to be paid.
And then I look at the last two months.
A really stressful trip to Utah, 80 hours in the car, going back and forth between Panguitch and St George, taking loads.
Dealing with 'all' of our stuff from 3 storage units.
Literally everything had to be gone through and a decision made over it:
Give it away.
Last weekend we did a show in Hattiesburg Mississippi.
It was wonderful to meet new people and see
gorgeous quilts once again.
But somehow after a show I feel so depleted and it takes
me days to get my 'get up and go' back again.
The people as always keep me going.
The highlight of that trip was meeting Susie Jackson and
seeing her amazing quilts.
I convinced her to quilt my Parisian Summer for me.
(Note to Self: I've got to maximize these highlights more when I'm
in this state of mind!"
And now I'm gearing up for company tonight...
which means I have to clean house....
I have a baby shower to pull off for Tory next Saturday....
and the piles of fabric I've brought home from the Utah trip
have made my studio look like Hurricane John'aLee
has visited once again!!
all this hand sewing that still needs to be done on my quilts,
weighs heavily on my mind daily!
I thought quilting was supposed to be fun!!
So enough of the complaining!
Any ideas from my loyal readers on how to not beat myself up
over not getting enough done would be much appreciated!
from a humble and needy heart...
