Quilters unite....errr...ummm maybe not
So last night I started on the "pile" in the dining room. This pile has been growing for a few months. It is the jeans pile that has been collected by me from various share sheds. Why buy used ones when I can get them for free!!!! So I don't have one of those special square quilting thingies, so I used a square like bowl that my husband found in the cupboard here for me lol....yes, he too has now become involved in this...and by involved I mean he gives his two cents worth on what he thinks I am doing wrong! Interesting right!!!! Yeah...that did NOT last long as I gave him the "look". It's funny how he becomes an expert on ALL things I try even though he has NEVER done them lol. As he likes to say "but I'm must trying to help you hun". LOL.
So anyways, back to the "pile", I started on this journey smiling.....this is how it looked after 10 minutes...
I'm thinking "who does this for fun?" No really.....is this fun? At what point does this become fun? Is this also relaxing...like yoga? Is this yoga for quilters? HELP ME UNDERSTAND THIS INSANITY LMAO.
So, I ended up cutting out approx 80 squares....are they all perfect squares...HELL NO...sheesh...I really have no idea what to do with the next step either, cause this first step was so exhausting I can't imagine this fun getting any better....I will mention that I did get through that process with out any profanity, so for this I should get a special quilting award just for that.
So this is what I have decided.....my sister shall have no fear of me want to take over her quilting retreats EVER...in fact I will only attend one if I can become the entertainment factor of it, where I can sit and mock the happy quilters....seriously, someone needs to do some stand up comedy routine on this stuff, cause I really do think it would be endless.
The other thing I have decided is this....I will complete this ONE quilt, my own jean quilt to cuddle with, it may take a LONG time, but I will get it done, it may look like a MAN did it, but I don't care.
Wish me luck!
