I just want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments about my recent revelation. It seems that lots of us are having difficulty squeezing "PQP" (pure quilting pleasure) into our busy days. Just based on the short time that I have been rising early to get my daily dose of PQP, I can tell you that my days feel better. As Finn so accurately put it, those 60 minutes of PQP give me "something to lean on" during the difficult parts of the day.
Ladies, I can't say enough about how important it is for all of us to get our daily recommended dose of PQP . I know that we are all trying to take better care of our bodies with exercise and diet but remember PQP is medicine for the creative part of a quilter's soul.
This morning, I was able to get a dozen pillowcase parts cut for our community service project which my guild is doing on Monday night. We are assembling pillowcases out of novelty and kiddie fabric for " The Hole in the Wall Gang " summer camp which is located here in Connecticut. This camp was started by Paul Newman and is for kids 7-15 who have cancer. Each camper gets a pillowcase, which I think is used as a duffel bag of sorts to collect their gear. At any rate, at the end of their camping session, each child gets to take the pillowcase home as a momento of their stay.
It sure was great to start my day not only doing something I love but being able to help others and BUST THAT STASH at the same time. A quilting WIN-WIN-WIN!!
