Tolerance and Toddlers

>> Monday, November 2, 2009

With my quilting mojo in full swing I discovered that my toddler is growing into his independence. I don't have much tolerance for this age - it's hard for me to let go and constantly reinforce limits at the same time.

The same can be said for my quilting time. I have more ideas, more designs in progress, more plans for new projects than I can ever get accomplished. Something has to give. I'm not good at thinking small though so some ideas got out and onto the design wall. My little tree has it's very own quilt now, a design I am trying to pursue to pattern and publishing! There's a peek here, hoping to get to reveal more soon!

My branch has sprouted some colourful leaves. This is one project I enjoy watching grow. It hardly resembles my initial plan - and that's good:)

It seems like this time of year I come up with good holiday quilt designs! This one is from last year. I'm trying to make it into something and get it out the door SOON! This is where I found out that tolerance can turn into neutral acceptance; I put off blanket stitching around half of these mittens for close to 8 months - and finished them all Sunday night.

Reassurance for both me and my little boy:)

Enjoy the design walls linked from Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.

With Joy,
