And yes, I also realize that this is my own fault for not scheduling regular time for my own quilts. But it's hard to do when you're looking at a 6-8 month backlog of client quilts. I'm tired. I'm ready to spend my time working on my own quilts and teaching in between....not teaching frantically between mounds of client quilts.
Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed all the client quilting I have done. Because of that, I have been privileged to work on some amazing quilts. I have quilted quilts that I would never make which is really fun and challenging. And, to be perfectly honest....I have quilted a few dogs. But all in all, quilting for others has been a terrific experience. I have learned an awful lot...a lot faster than I would have if just quilting my own quilts. And I won a lot of ribbons from client quilts too. To all my clients, I thank you for the privilege and experience of finishing your artwork. I believe it has enriched us both.
So, I should have the last of my client commitments finished by early April. WOW....then all that time for me! And boy do I have a list of stuff I want to do. Of course I still have 2 family members quilts to do that I have had for close to a year....They'll be first.
But for now, I'm still working on those client quilts ...and this one is gonna be a beauty!
Thanks for listening and have a great night!
