Spontaneous

Last night as I was finishing some last minute things at work, I started thinking about a class that was happening the following night.

Then I started going through in my head all the women that I knew who were gonna be there. As I did that I started to think about all the fun I could have and all the laughter that was bound to occur.

So on a spontaneous spur of the moment, I decided to stay at the quilt shop after work and sew on my Amazon Star.

We did have a lot of laughter. It has been a little awkward for me at first though when I go to sew at stuff like this because I really start to feel my age.

Or should I say lack of it.

When I am just working the floor, I don’t even think about my age compared to all the customers I help. But when I sit and sew with them and they get to talking I suddenly realize how different their stage of life is from mine. I find myself hearing them talk about their daughter or granddaughter who is just going off to college or graduating from high-school.

And I think, “Wow, I am the same age as their granddaughter. I wonder what they think of me, just a young pup and quilting with them!”

So I find myself focusing on my quilting and not really socializing. Maybe its cause I don’t go to these types of things very often. But I know I want to!! I got so much sewing done tonight!

I got all the strips pieced for the star point. (bag #2 is slowly getting there!)

I just had to lay it out for picture. When I did I found that I had made an oops and will have to rip out. Ick!  (I dare you to find it!)

Needless to say that ended my sewing for tonight. When it gets late and I make a mistake I have learned to quit before I either make more mistakes or get so frustrated that I want to chuck the project.

A fellow quilter told me to mark the pile that I need to rip.

Here’s my oops pile.

Looks like I have some ripping to do tomorrow. *Sigh*
