All around the town it's starting to feel a bit like Christmas. Here and there people have put up their Christmas lights. Finally, the lights I leave on my porch all year start to fit in and I can proudly stand on my porch and say, Oh yes, I'm ready for Christmas too.
For my business, it's a busy time working on getting out all the orders for Christmas. Each one so eagerly awaited. Each planned for a special loved one. Each hoping that it's the perfect gift. I am so humbled to be a small part of each of my client’s holidays and I feel the importance of remembering this as I work on each quilt.
As the magician, it's important to weave the perfect magic for each so I must be ever mindful as I create each quilt. To be fully "present" as I create so the quilt becomes the perfect present for someone else. In the creation time slips away quietly as I am unaware of the ever-changing day. One moment I look up and the day is bright and shinning and the next it's dark and the evening has drifted in and I stop to appreciate the magic of this moment. I see the quilt that once was just a bit of fabric here and there and now, it's a creation longing for completion...longing for it's new home.
