What do I do when I am at a dodgeball arena for 4 hours?



A very primitive wonky piece for the Alzheimers auction....I am disappointed that it looks so off and uneven but I guess that is what happens when you cut and glue with a glue stick and wish you had a machine in a place with ode to sweat. he he he! I went to the psychiatrist for a summer my first year of quilting due to my perfectionism with traditional quilting....it was an expensive summer to learn that to have fun I will need to turn to the Wonky-side...never been back! I think of redoing it by piecing but am going to quilt and see if it will work.....Today was a riot at the dodgeball arena because the owner came up out of curiousity and then let me know she is a quilter and putting together her Dear Jane blocks. We chatted about the hobby, kids and the talent of our local lady, Green Fairy. We are both green with envy of her gift!!!!

Off to walk Porsche and then Roxy and I have a date to quilt Onna...The day is young, right?.....

Love, EM

Em what a fabulous picture of your sewing machine you have as your blog header! It is fantastic! I am intrigued by you seeing a psychiatrist for your quilting habit...I haven't even told the psychologist I see about my quilting. I wonder if I should... :)

You've found the secrets of true joy, Em.....color, spontaneity, dodging the fast balls, glue everything together as needed, and the faith that it will all work out as you stitch it all together for love and giving and healing! Awesome goodness.

I love your AAQI quilt. It is beautiful. You amaze me with what you do with glue sticks. I'm going to have to do it. I just have a hard time letting loose. Hugs

Glue sticks in the Dodgeball Arena? I love that! And now another new q-pal too. Now just how awesome is that?

I looked & looked, and I just don't see the "off-ness" here. I suppose you'll just have to settle for FUN!
