Thinking about writing a book proposal...well, it's a great idea. Unfortunately it kind of crushed my mojo after a week or two. Quilting started feeling like a JOB and stopped feeling fun. I know that being a grown up is not all about fun, but as I've said many times before, quilting is one of the few things I can control. The laundry keeps getting dirty, the dishes still pile in the sink, and kids still get hungry. They even need regular baths no matter what they will tell you to the contrary.
For some reason, it's easy to get sucked into the idea that making quilts for people you love is just not enough. I started quilting to have something I could hand down to my children and I started blogging to share what I was doing, pay it back with a few tutorials, and hopefully inspire (as in "hey, if she's doing this, it can't be that hard!). When I lose sight of that things get un-fun really quickly. I genuinely love quilting and I don't want to ruin that by turning it into a contest.
So that's on my BACK burner for now. Maybe one day. I am happy to report the creative juices started flowing again.
