There's something I've been avoiding all morning. I've cleaned up the kids' rooms, made my bed, ran to the store for avocados and peanut butter cups, spent way too much time on the internet- all in an effort to avoid one thing.
I only have one line left to quilt. It is 19/20ths of the way done. It's probably only going to take half an hour and then I will be done quilting it. I don't want to be done! I have enjoyed quilting this so much. It's kept me busy during the long evenings with my husband gone at rehearsal. It's calmed me down and relaxed me when I'm stressed. It's exciting. I want to throw a little party every time I finish a row. I've gotten in the habit of leaving it stretched out somewhere so I can walk by often, pet it and admire my stitches. It's time to just buck up, turn on an episode of 30 Rock and finish this puppy. I will miss it.
Needless to say, I see more big stitch hand quilting in my future.
