A quilting friend passed away, and told her loved ones to "contact Sandy, and she will take care of all the quilting stuff".
I didn't know she did that.
She was a typical quilter, with LOTS of STASH!! Some people might even call us "Hoarders". But we are not. We simply love our STASHES.
And Kitty was a true quilter with STASH.
So, day after day, hour after hour, I have been at her house, organizing her STASH. My friends Irene and Wendy are helping me, because they, being quilters, UNDERSTAND STASH.
We have been putting in minimums of seven hours each day, many times much more.
So here's my query: How come, with all the measuring, labeling, sorting, boxing, stacking, loading, lifting, walking, did I gain a half pound????
It's not like we are eating our ways through the day. Not hardly. We have our coffee and a sandwich for lunch, and the three of us split a brownie. That's it.
So why did I gain a half pound????
I know some people are going to say "muscle weighs more than fat". I figure a pound is a pound.
I can feel the increased muscles, especially in my arms, and perhaps I should have measured my arms before I began this journey. I think they are smaller. I mean I think my bat wings are smaller.
If not, WHY NOT!!??
I will continue with her STASH again today. We aren't too far from a finish line, then my life will become my own again.
I pulled my quilt registration from the quilt show because I simply won't have enough time to finish it without rushing. I don't want to do that, because it is way too special to ruin it now. I must be sensible, and have patience to do it the right way, and not just rush around so I can get it into the show.
Hmmmmmmmm maybe I am getting some wisdom in my old age after all!
