Life is like a box of chocolates

I thought about using "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" as the title of this post, but I really like chocolate. Well, most chocolate anyway. Sometimes you get a chocolate with a weird filling inside. No matter how much I like chocolate I am not eating that weird filling. So life is really like a box of chocolates! I have such a great life (not trying to brag) but somedays are filled with weird stuff. That is today for me and it is only 11:30! These are the times when I am grateful for my sewing machine and my laptop. What great ways to escape. Quilting brings such comfort in so many ways. Buying the fabric is therapeutic. Thinking about a pattern takes my mind off of other (less pleasurable) things. Finishing a quilt makes me feel euphoric and when you finally get the quilt back from the quilter you can bundle yourself in the warm coziness of your creation. A quilt is warmth to your body and comfort to your soul. So on a day like today when so much seems to be going wrong, it is good to know that when I get to my studio everything will be just great! I hope you are having a great day! If not...head to your sewing machine for some quilting R & R.
