I'm sorry! I didn't mean to leave you out here in Blogville all alone! I know that I always appreciate the blogs that I can read daily, or if not daily, at least regularly.
Here's the thing.
I could say I really don't have much to say, but that would be a cop out, wouldn't it? No one reads a blog to get the latest info on world politics, or what's happening on Wall Street, do they? We read them to be entertained. Well, I do anyway. But lately I've been in a funk, and didn't figure I should inflict it on my many, many, (3) readers. Sure, I've done a little sewing, and I'll share that with you, but I haven't had the Woo-Diggity cheerleader attitude that I like to project.
I've been comparing myself to the wonderful,
wonderful quilters out there, and I think when you start comparing yourself to anyone you can always find something that you lack. These people make BEAUTIFUL quilts, but they also make A LOT of quilts!! I saw a few blogs with "2009 Quilts" on the sidebar, and I thought "Neat! I've finished a quilt or two, I should do that! But then I have the, well, the quilt or two... and some of these chicks have THIRTY QUILTS OR MORE!!! Hello? I mean, it's MARCH! Oh dang, it's APRIL! See? It gets away from me! I still haven't put away the New Year's champagne glasses, let alone churned out a quilt a day! That's a lot of quilts! So yeah, I compared my two to their thousand and came up a little short.
But then I told myself that I don't know their circumstances; I barely know mine. Maybe they stay at home all day every day. Maybe they have maids. MAYBE they employ tiny quilt elves who do all the pesky basting and quilting in the night. I don't know. I do know that I work Monday thru Friday from 8 to 5. I come home to a beautiful pup and a beautiful man who deserve my attention. I wouldn't change that for the world. So, I guess I'm not going to be churning out the quilts like a Cambodian sweatshop any time soon. That's ok. I've taken off the pictures of my "2009 Quilts", you'll have to catch them as I blog about them. And I will. It's a quilting blog, after all.
