We Can !

Embarrasing revelation:  I recently purchased a Tony Robbins audiobook.  I am desperate to find the motivation to meet my goals.

I am 42.  And that number is meaningful to me because of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series – books I loved in high school.  42 figures predominantly in that story. For no good reason other than that I feel like this is my year to achieve rather than strive, or even worse, just wish.

And I can’t seem to get going.  And so I googled motivational books and (of course) Mr. Robbins’ books came up again and again.  And the book is so cheesy. and basic.  But I keep hearing his voice in my head.  I keep telling myself that my decisions decide my future.  And then I make the wrong decisions – food that makes me feel crappy, sleeping in late, zoning out instead of creating, distractions subverting my drive.

It is never too late to be better.  I sure hope that is true.

“We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.” – Tony Robbins

There hasn’t been a picture of a quilt for a looooooong time on this blog, lots of different personal events have prevented me from getting much sewing done at all – in addition to my general slothly ennui that has been hitting me.

BUT this quilt I created for a coworker who is having a baby boy.  Her colors are grey and cactus green.


I played with lots of Carolyn Friedlander fabrics – picking up other colors that go with grey and cactus green.  I love this quilt… and glad to have one baby quilt done out of my growing list.
