I am frequently asked "How do you get so much done?" I'm flattered that people think I get an extraordinary amount of things done it really has to be seen in perspective to the rest of my life. I don't have children, my husband does 90% of the cooking and grocery shopping, I avoid shopping like the plague (thanks to Amazon) and I would go into a deep depression if Lisa stopped cleaning my house. I try to pay her enough that I'll be the last client that she gives up.
Having severe allergies that kept me from traveling and going outside for over 25 years sent me to the sewing room. Spending time here kept me from feeling sorry for myself. It became my happy place and it still is so I do whatever I can to spend the most time as possible doing any of my hobbies.
But I also do some little things to try to save myself time in the long run. Last night I wanted to load the next pair of veteran's quilts. We buy batting for them by the bolt and I needed to cut off a new piece. While I had it out I went ahead and cut the entire roll. I do the same with backing, which we order by the bolt. Having these things ready to go means that loading the quilts takes all of 10 minutes and I'm ready to quilt.
Of course cutting that took all of the rest of my time but I'm ready to go when I get home from teaching the new Innova owners today at The Longarm Network. I love teaching these classes because I still love my Innova just as much, maybe even more, than the day it arrived here almost 2 years ago.
So you see, I haven't actually accomplished all that much the past 2 days!
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
