Quilting Saves the Day (Again)

This morning I woke up feeling unhinged...fretful and anxious and just. not. right. I did my chores and ran errands, knowing that after lunch I had to work on my thesis. Chapter 2 is still unfinished.

Once home I had lunch and instead of unhinged I began to feel as if the the hinges were broken and the lid had been ripped off....I did a little school work, but couldn't shake my feelings of "I don't want to" so, I just didn't.

Instead I finished a tiny bit of quilting on the pink quilt and attached the binding. The I layered, basted, machine quilted, and bound the little orange and green owl quilt. Yes, you read that right I FINISHED something today! And the pink one just needs the handwork and it will be finished too.

I put on music, drank some Dr. P, later I had some chocolate...the sun was pouring in and I wasn't worried about anything. It turned into a glorious day and guess what?....

The world didn't stop turning because I didn't do what I was supposed to do.

In other news: Several people have asked about the chicks. All are well and the hatchery is sending another order this week. I'm worried about a repeat of last week, but I'm trying not to think about it.

I am happy that you are navigating the many demands of life! I have a lot of writing and tasks to do right now too and I feel the need not to let down the people I love and who depend on me. Recharging is so powerful!!! Hooray for fabric therapy! Good luck with all those sweet chicks...
