Unfinished Business

I was so smug in thinking I had plenty of time and a machine was on it’s way.  Well it arrived a day late. I thawed it out-it had frost on it which I am sure was not good for it.  I waited patiently for it to dry out. I sat down and realized I didn’t send along the right walking foot for the machine . I couldn’t quilt without the right foot for the machine. Kind of like forgetting the paintbrush but remembering the paint. . It wasn’t going to happen.  Unfinished quilts will remain unfinished for 2010. I fussed for a bit. Ok fussed for a few hours and into the next morning.

And then I looked outside.

Beautiful sunshine. We rarely see the sun in Michigan in the winter. I strapped on my snowshoes and just walked. Breathing in the cold air and feeling the sun on my face.

And realized fussing is really rather foolish.  Maybe I  needed a break from this obsessional sewing. 

I am sure I will sew yet this week. But right now I am going to enjoy my vacation and the mountains.

Be creative-or maybe just enjoy the time between the holidays to see where you have been and where you want to go.
