Yesterday, was a very productive day, quilt wise. I was able to turn the third corner on Simple but Not. So now we are heading toward the homestretch! I turned on my current audio book and really got lost in my quilting. I am listening to Killing Lincoln and was captivated by the description of some of the last battles fought in the Civil War. It made me think about the mom's and wives that were at home wondering if their sons or husbands would come home. It made me think of the civil war era quilts and how important it must have been for those women to be able to stitch as they waited for their love one to return. Do you have a quilt that has special meaning to you? A quilt that has special memories stitched into it! Quilting for me is so much more than cutting up fabric and sewing it back together. It is more than a craft that I enjoy. I think of it more as therapy. In this busy old world, it is nice to slow down and reflect about what all of it means.
So today, I hope to continue with my book and stitch another section of Simple but Not. Hopefully, this section of feathers will get look more like the picture below when I put down my needle today. I hope you can also enjoy some meaningful stitches today. I am also linking up with Kathy and the other slow stitchers that share their beautiful work at Kathy's linky party. Hope you can join us!
