I have neglected my blog. I like blogging, so what can I say for myself?
A demanding job, apathy, depression, a time-out, a boring existence, self-pity, frustration at the lack of control of my life….
Sheesh! You’d think somebody died or something! Get a grip! Change the negative brain recording!
I’m shaping up. Mentally, that is. Many of those emotions I’ve listed above apply to a big project. That would be my Aunt Sukey Spins Off project.
Yup. I became bored and frustrated with it, and it became a monster sitting on my shoulders and whispering great doses of guilt into my ears.
I don’t understand myself. Why…oh why…do I insist on complicating things. I love the acronym, KISS…keep it simple, Stupid. I love it, but have yet to apply it to myself.
Here I’ve made this classic traditional red and white quilt. So far, so good. But I can’t decide how to quilt it, and I go all out on the thing. And then I become frustrated. The quilting doesn’t fit the quilt.
There are times when I really should take a cue from my good friend Judy Butcher. She knows how to quilt a traditional quilt.
Alas, I’m committed.
We’ll see how it turns out.
In spite of myself.
