- I need to trust myself. I know that my projects will move forward even if I'm not plowing ahead full force. I am a person who naturally leans into the future (for better and worse!), and thrives off of moving forward.
- I need to carve out studio time. I've marked off all of my Sundays between now and the wedding as "QUILTING DAY," and I'm treating them as sacred time to ground myself.
Today was my first day spent in the studio in a long time. Too long!
In the middle of last week, I took a look at my to-do list and all of the exciting projects I have going on, and my head started spinning: finishing up my coaching certification and launching my business, revamping and revitalizing this blog, cultivating the awesome Rhode Island Modern Quilt Guild, oh yeah, and planning my wedding!
It's such an exciting time of ideas, energy, and abundance. The kicker is that everything on my list is a want-to, not a have-to. Ideal! But I want to do it all, and I want to do it now!
I know it can't all be done at once. But I also know that they will all get done.
Two important things I came to realize this week:
A couple of months ago, the Modern Quilt Guild issued a challenge to its members: create a quilt using only the Madrona Road fabric line from Michael Miller, along with solid fabrics. Here's my answer to the call:
tiny house quilt that I made a few weeks back for my brother and sister-in-law's housewarming gift. I love how these colors go together!
