I woke up this morning with a list of things to do in my head.
There were the Zip Potholders to get in the mail, check my bank account to see that the money from Suzy’s shawls was deposited then figure out the fees and my commission and Venmo her the money. Then finish sewing my second batch of Zip potholder and do the last of September’s paper work. Along with, of course, blogging.
But first on my list was getting a solid three hours in to work on my Woodland Animals quilt for Kathy.
The muse was with me this morning. I truly believe that my muse is the dedication of time to my creativity. When I put my creative work first, the muse is always there to accompany me.
First I filled in the space to the left of the squirrel with those long stripes. Then I did the same to the right of the Raccoon. My work hummed without a hitch.
When I had all the pieces sewn together, a wide strip of soft maroon fabric showed up and I started stitching it around the whole. It only made it halfway, but by then it was time for lunch.
That’s when I stopped.
I had shipping and the rest of the list to get done. There’s more time for my quilt tomorrow I told myself as I reluctantly unplugged my iron and covered my sewing machine.
Patience, I told myself. My list is longer than my day.
