I’m a writer, therefore I can think of all sorts of things to do other than writing.
When I should be writing.
Other writers laugh at this. We all know how we are. Stephen Pressfield calls it “Resistance”. Eric Maisel calls it “creative anxiety”.
I call it “resting my eyes from the computer monitor”.
This is a quilt top being made from nothing but scraps. Last year I pieced together lots and lots of scraps and cut lots and lots of 1.5″ strips out of odds and ends of fabric. When quilting fabric costs $11.00 a yard, you don’t want to waste it.
Years ago I made a design wall out of a folding screen bought at a yard sale. Banjo Man helped me with the stapling and it has been a big help when planning quilt designs. I also use it to block off messes, because cleaning up messes is also a great thing to do when I should be writing.
You can see I make wild, colorful quilts. My friends and relatives and Banjo Man are not quite sure about these quilts, so when I make quilts for gifts I turn the volume down, way down. I become absolutely demure.
