Quilting Again

I’ve been contemplating returning to blogging recently. Lately, after a two year hiatus I felt the need to create again- the need to stitch- the need to quilt. I have to confess that I for a long time I felt that I had burnt myself out. I had overextended myself in so many ways- taking on too many quilt bees, committing to things that I just couldn’t complete at a difficult time in my life.

In that time I just stopped. I didn’t feel the creativeness I used to- the excitement that made me want to sneak in twenty minutes here fifteen minutes there on my machine.

Then one day, something changed. I started to feel the urge to create again. Truthfully it started slow. I found myself pinning things on pinterest and creating small spaces of retreat at home and the next thing I knew I started pulling out old unfinished projects.

So I think I am back. I think I will try to start again. I am truly sorry to all the lovely women (and men!) in the quilt bees that I suddenly dropped out of and to the commitments I could not keep. I hope you will find it in your hearts to forgive…

In the mean time yet another cross quilt. I am still fully addicted to the simplicity of this pattern and sharpness of the colors.
