Rocking Out The Studio

Okay, so I have talked a bit about getting back in the saddle. (Gratuitous Stampede reference.) But have yet to actually do so. Until today.

Oh yeah!
Woot woot!
Go me and boo yah!

I finally got off my butt and and went into the studio. This time, I actually did something. My last few trips have been in a supervisory capacity only. I sat on my stool and told the Spawn how to quilt her baby quilts. I did nothing but watch.

But today, that all changed. I headed into the studio, cranked up the stereo, loaded a quilt and quilted the entire thing. Man, let me tell you, I was rocking out the studio today. Hopefully nobody was watching me through the window, because I was so happy to be working that I was dancing around like some kind of mad fool. (No snide comments please.)
Working on a sailboat quilt. It belongs to a friend.
I think I have had it for ten months.
Note that I haven't changed the winter quilt to spring yet.
I have to confess that I had completely and totally forgotten how much I love quilting. If I didn't need to rest the bum knee, I would still be in there. Next up ... hmm. Should I do another client quilt or perhaps one of my own, or maybe a baby quilt, or a friend's quilt. (Friend's don't count as clients, because they don't get a choice as to when I will do their quilt, what thread I will use, or how it will be quilted. I'm a bit of a control freak some times.)

This is me saying, so long for now and thank god I'm quilting again. It is soothing the restless, creative beast inside me. Sometimes, writing just isn't enough, I need hands on therapy.



  1. Hands on therapy is the best kind. It keeps the mind going strong.

    1. It is indeed great therapy. It was the best day I've had for eons. I am excited to start piecing again and maybe get back after the designing too.

      Thanks for stopping by.


  2. Glad to hear that you are inspired to create again Cathy!



    1. I am indeed inspired. I've been having fun in the studio working on some client quilts. Almost ready to start to quilts for the grandbaby coming in Sept.
