Get back to work!

I have so many quilts to do. I wonder if I'll ever see the light at the end of the tunnel. But still I wish that I paced myself better. I get up early (5:15am) everyday, put on some good work tunes. (example: Ted Nugent, Eric Clapton, The Who) And then I work hard! So hard, that by noon I'm completely exhausted and collapse on the sofa for a nap. On my feet all morning, quilting, quilting, quilting. I do love to quilt, but I'm almost burnt out. Keyword: almost! So tired. Do I need vitamins? Who knows? After a cat-nap, I'm back to work, until late into the evening. My legs hurt, that's when I stop for a break. Oh, in between quilting I have a family of a husband and a 22-year old, a 19-year old, and 16-year old.

Right now I'm listening to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young to calm down. "Helplessly Hoping" Oops! I think it was just Crosby, Stills & Nash. Sorry.

A quilting friend heard what music I play as I work and she said, "That's nice that you listen to the oldies." I was offended! Oldies! I'm not from that generation, am I? I corrected her and said, "I like to call them Classics." She apologized. We both laughed.

Listening to Ted Nugent I ask myself, What is Cat Scratch Fever? Is there really such a thing? Sounds awful. And Stranglehold! What does that mean? Sounds rough, but I like it. Aww the Classics. Back to work. Time for some "Baba OReilly" by The Who! Maybe even a little Led Zepplin.

Your quilting is fantastic! That whole cloth quilt on your blog is beyond beautiful. Glad we are becoming better friends...I have so much to learn from you!
