I'm happy to join this movement, as this seems to be the approach I have taken to quilting right from the start. I don't quilt if I'm not in the mood. I don't quilt for other people (with one exception - which I regretted) and I don't make quilts for gifts for Christmas, birthdays, etc. That is not to say that I don't give away my quilts - but I make them first, then decide on the occasion for giving. I did make a graduation quilt for my daughter, but didn't actually tell her it was for her graduation until it was done. And, it was two years late! Now I'm working on a grad quilt for my son, who graduated in 2000.
I'm home from work today, but not quilting. Our furnace decided to quit - and it's -25 outside, so I'm waiting for the repair guy to make his emergency visit. He doesn't seem to have the samesense of urgency that I do. When I called, he said "We'll see what we can do." Doesn't give you a lot of confidence, does it? Luckily, we have two furnaces - one for the upstairs and one for the main floor / basement. The upstairs one is still chugging away, so while it's chilly on the main floor, it isn't freezing. But my sewing room is in the basement, and I'm afraid if I go down there, I won't hear the doorbell.
Oh - he's just arrived. Here's hoping!
