Waiting For The Light

The holidays are over, the house is quiet, and I am back in the sewing room. The center for a small quilt is finished – which is not a huge achievement given that I started with three panels. Still, all that is left is to find something to put on the sides. This is what I pull from the drawer.

It isn’t great, but it isn’t awful. I pick up the cutters, when that often-ignored voice speaks. “Self, wait for the light.”

This is actually less profound than you might think. The sun set before I strong-armed myself in front of the sewing machine, which meant I was picking fabric under artificial light. I have learned to my horror that this is a dreadful idea. So, I waited until morning and discovered a much better combination.

The part of my brain that wants to use up my stash kicked into gear, and I realized I could add at least one more small piece of fabric. This is how the quilt ended.

Waiting for the light is always worth it.

Luck and wisdom!

    I think “Wait for the light,” will become my new mantra when my muse is elusive.
