I was sewing the edge around my latest streaming pillow Queen of My Own Heart when Jon came home from having lunch with a friend. He said it was a holiday, Veterans Day, and I should quilt early. So when did they change holidays from being on Monday to being on Friday? I guess I’ve been out of the main stream work world too long.
It was 3;30, and a part of me wanted to finish my pillow but another part was excited at the unexpected and spontaneous idea of quitting early. It was like having a snow day (another great thing about the winter!) So I sewed the two pieces of fabric that were in my machine and started to pin the third side of the pillow thinking I’d just finish up. I pushed the third straight pin through the fabric then stopped. No reason to rush through it just to get it done. 10 more minutes today or 10 more minutes Monday morning wouldn’t make a difference. I took the pins out, took a picture of the half finished pillow and closed up the studio. After all, isn’t making such decisions part of what being Queen of my own heart means.
