Doodle Series: Just Do It

When you have deadlines which prevent precious quilting time one of the best things to do is doodle potential free motion quilting designs. 

I also really enjoy that creative 'me' time. The past two weeks have not allowed any time at the sewing machine but every night before I go to bed I make sure to draw something. This creativity helps me be happy.

We must stop comparing ourselves to others. We torture ourselves needlessly by competing and comparing. We falsely judge our self-worth by the things we do or don’t have and by the opinions of others. If we must compare, let us compare how were in the past to how we are today-anreven to how we want to be in the future.
