I am starting work on the Celtic Knot quilt. I love looking at a quilt loaded on the frame all ready to start.
Each of the cords is quilted differently, and the background is concentric circles. Once I had a plan in mind it all fell into place. My initial plan changed, but now I am on track, and quilting merrily along. This one will take some time, and I am alright with that. I enjoy the process of quilting, the zone I get into, and I try not to worry about how long things are taking. I am in no rush, and find I get uptight when I try to push myself too far and go faster than I am comfortable with.
With the holidays here, and the new baby, school break for by adult kids who teach, we have many family things going on. Last night everyone was here just hanging out. Four adult kids, and all four grand babies. It was wonderful. I am content to put my sewing and quilting on a break when necessary, and enjoy more time with the kids. I do feel an obligation of sorts to keep up with my blog, but even that can take a break from time to time. This week I think will be one of those times. What with shopping, cooking, eating, baking , more eating, gathering and playing. It is all good.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving week. I am grateful.
