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.
