I was trying to rush to finish up this quilt for Amy's quilt festival this weekend and it was making it too much like work. Then I was an inactive (shy) participant in a live chat with Denyse Schmidt on Twitter Saturday. One thing Denyse said really stood out because it's so true for me. "As soon as a deadline is attached, just assume that it introduces a level of stress and may take some of the enjoyment away."
I decided right then to take the deadline out of the equation and just relax. I'll be taking my time on the quilting because I've got a more involved pattern in mind. I'm actually looking forward to working on it a little bit each evening after dinner. Quilting gets pretty monotonous so I may have a little wine and Pandora involved. Ahhhh .... sounds much better than hurrying to get it done last week.
