Be Kind to YOURSELF from Val's Quilting Studio

Hello Hello my fellow blogging friends!!

I came to realize that it's almost been FOUR months since I've even blogged.
Yet, after getting my hair cut today and chit chatting with my hairstylist...
(I just LOVE getting my pixie cut...especially with the onset of Summer!)
 
...I was inspired to write this post...as for the first time during this pandemic I felt like I wasn't alone in finding myself needing to navigate unknown terrain yet internally frustrated in NOT finding comfort and motivation in all that use to motivate me. For example, when this pandemic started ...

Sorting It Out from From the Strawberry Patch...

With nowhere to go, and a stash of fabric and supplies on hand, it's like being on a never-ending retreat; these are the days we quilters have been stockpiling for all those years! But-- I need to slow down and sort this out. I have always been that person who's thinking of the "next quilt" before I finish what I'm working on now. With this current situation, for me, it's worse than ever. I

Let’s get real honest.

My list includes lots of other things of varying import from ziplining to a trip in June to Ireland to working on my latest social media campaign to polishing my Photoshop skills to making a quilt for my niece who graduates from high school in May to …. Lots of business ...

My 2020 Project List from Prairie Moon Quilts

My yearly list of 12 things. Last year, I was super overly ambitious. I knew it was at the time, and you all warned me, but I was pie-in-the-sky hopeful about it. Here’s what it was:

I did finish my 36-Patch quilt:

I made 16 pillowcases, and still have umpteen more cut out, so I will continue to sew them up as time allows (which evidently it doesn’t allow, or I’d have gotten 25 finished). Uff!

My 20 in 2020 from Val's Quilting Studio

Bitmoji Image
I've been reading about the value of intentional living and have begun to discover what happiness and success mean to me. The heavy weights I've been carrying on my shoulders finally dissolving as I find myself free of so many physical, emotional and financial obligations. I used 2019 as a year dedicated to emotional healing and mindful decluttering. We literally turned our life upside down and took control of our own situation. 2019 was a major turning point for us as a couple and in the process, I began to learn what I want and need to feel ...
