I’m not a spring chicken by any means and yesterday I began another adventure that has been given to me through my career in Quilting. I don’t know where it will end. I don’t really mind to be honest, I just count myself lucky to have done the interesting things I have because I chose to be a Quilt Teacher…. or then again did I sort of fall into it?
The main thing for me is that I do it to the best of my ability. I’m a little hard on myself.
As I arrive back to my hotel this evening and make a coffee in the sudo coffee machine instead of my own barista style and eat graham crackers instead of vegemite on toast or a nice cheese on crackers I enjoy what I have and I wonder what else is around the corner?
I’m often asked how do you manage to do so much? Well, to be honest, I don’t think I do, I just find myself in interesting situations and I make the most of every day.
To me this chosen profession has the reputation of being honest, respectful and I like to think of myself as a team player. (At least I try to be) I share my ideas on quilting with students because I love what I do and I have a passion that keeps bubbling to the surface. I have little or no control over the creative ideas that are always there under the surface and they often burst out with a sense of the ridiculous.
Life is too valuable to sit on the couch.
And besides I have the excitement of having my evening meal delivered to my room tonight, how good is that. That doesn’t happen at home. !!!!
