Don’t waste time…

I spent about a year and a half writing my first novel, about a year and a half editing it, and about 30 years thinking, “Oh no! What if I can’t really do it?”  I can tell you, that 30 years was a big waste of time!  What are you hesitating to do? If it’s longarm quilting — quit wasting time!  At Seldom Seen Quilting it’s affordable and painless to learn — and I promise you will be able to do it!

I spy…

An old quilt is always good for a game of “I spy.”  Are all the striped pieces “going” the same way? Is there any piece of fabric that is only there once?  Which piece of fabric is represented the most times?  Are there any mistakes or anomalies in the pattern?  Two pieces of the same fabric side by side anywhere? This is what we were doing this afternoon with a quilt top made by my husband’s great-grandmother.  I’m ready to repair it and put it on the frame.

Do a little good…

If a little good is what you can do — do it! If you can bring excitement back to a widow’s life, do that.  If you can praise a co-worker, do that.  If you can make a child smile, do that.  Every little bit of good is important in the world.  And I’ve discovered that there are many opportunities for small pieces of good at Seldom Seen Quilting!  What a joy!
