Loosening Up

You know how you make something beautiful and because it is so beautiful, you are afraid to use it.

I make my quilts for others and say to them, "please use this, it is made to be used and enjoyed".

Well, I am guilty of the opposite.  I have made so many beautiful quilts for myself, and have not used them.  I have this big dog (Belle) who will not stay off my bed.  So I deny myself the pleasure of using my quilts on my bed.

Today I have decided to loosen up and go for it.  Nervously I made my bed this morning with the quilt entered in the Edgerton Quilt show.   Let's see how strong I am  and  if I can continue to enjoy this quilt as it was meant to be.

I needed a pick me up this morning, after last nights election results.   Yikes.  Enough said about that.

What will be will be and we shall see how it all pans out.

That is too beautiful not to show on a bed. Well, I had a weimeraner once and they do have minds of their own. My present mutt is a chewer and has been banned from beds.

Thanks Julie, but I already caved in. After one day and one night of freaking out each time Belle got on the bed I decideed to put it back ont he quilt rack. I will use it for special occasions and company. Holidays are coming, and ocmpany so I will pull it off rack and put back on bed. Thanks for your comment, by doing so gave me a chance to visit your blog. You do awesome work and cant wait to find a little more time to read some of your other blogs.
