I realized something about my hobby today.  One reason I enjoy quilting is because quilts are patient. 

I was a scrapbooker for awhile, but I found that once I started a layout or a photobook I needed to finish it in one sitting or I would loose my vision of what I was creating.  It was hard to dive back in to a project that was started more than a week before. 

With quilting, I can set aside a quilt and leave it for quite a bit of time and then come back to it without missing a beat - I can pick up right where I left off.  Why is that?  I have a quilt it my closet that I started YEARS ago.  There it sits – patiently waiting for it’s turn to be quilted. 

With as crazy as life can get sometimes, it’s nice to have a patient hobby.

  1. So true! I often call quilting my therapy because when things in life get crazy I always turn to my quilting to relax and unplug.
