Another day, another quilt in progress. Call me obsessed, but I feel exhilarated. This one is inspired by this. I paid the $6 bucks and am learning some valuable, basic tools. I love how this woman instructs. So sensibly. Why go to a class and be around other people when I can learn quietly by myself in my own little studio? I can sit right here and wait for the birds to come to their new food source outside my window. For the most part, birds are so much more pleasant than humans.
And on that note, I did something I've been wanting to do for years now....I cancelled my Facebook account. Talk about feeling exhilarated! 600 people and their political views, comments about their cups of coffee, and morning workout regimes are finally detached from me (and me from them!) I feel so light and joyous. I feel so free! I did open up a new account and friended my husband. I may add other people eventually, but probably not. After all, my husband is my best friend and his minutia I can accept and often enjoy.
Blogging is different from Facebook in such an extreme way, but I can't really describe how. It feels much less invasive. For instance, if you don't like my blog, don't read it. Simple as that. You don't have to friend me to be here. You don't even have to comment. (But I like it when you do, after all, keeping a blog is no small thing.) If I read your blog, please know that I like your personal minutia, too. Your personal minutia is very interesting to me. Yours and Brad's, and absolutely no one else's. Maybe my kids. AND THAT'S IT!)
Anyhoo, I should probably get on gettin' on. As usual, so many dreams to fulfill in the space of a day. Cats to feed and maybe some thrift shopping. Fabric shopping? Yes please. And a goal to try my own personal stab at this.
