I was on a guild retreat last weekend and my friend Thelma asked me if I ever get tired of making quilts. I told her "No", but then I had to amend myself. I have moments and days when I just don't feel like working on them, and then I have other moments and days when I want to do nothing but that. But do I ever get tired enough to stop? Never.
I don't sew much at home any more. I do most of my sewing on retreats. I enjoy the communal sewing environment. The visiting. The snacking. The sharing of techniques and tricks.
I don't sew much at home because I feel guilty. Not guilty for taking the time to sew. But guilty because there is a pile of quilts waiting to be quilted. I tend to do more quilting at home and more piecing on retreats.
Quilting is another thing. I just have to be in the mood to do it or I don't do a very good job and am unhappy with the product. Sometimes I don't quilt for weeks or months and then all of a sudden I'll quilt 4 or 5 quilts in a weekend. It's just whenever the mood strikes me.
