I have so much I love to do and when I do them I tend to go for it with all my focus and time and nothing else matters. I cannot be distracted. And then something shifts and I stop. Sometimes for months, even a year, at a time. It might be ceramics, painting, quilt making or jewelry. It can also be writing. But, at least, there is always something there for me.
When I picked this quilt up again, I worked solidly on it until it was finished. All told, in work hours, I really don't think it took me that long - in real time, about a year.
I designed it with my quirky flowers, and picked bright, vibrant colours, because that is what is in my heart for Nikki.
My mind is now conjuring up designs and colours for Becky, my other daughter, but I know I will have to wait for when that quilt wants to happen.
