Just Another Day

There is a lot to be said in favour of routine.  The same old activity of getting up, having coffee and breakfast, exercise, check e mail, do housework etc provides a kind of security.  Holidays are fun but it is home that provides the comfort.
This week I am getting back into that routine.  Yesterday was my usual Monday quilt group.  A nice day with most members attending and we did get some sewing done in the midst of the conversation and sharing.  Last night, I got back to the wedding quilt I am working on and today, after I get the other routine stuff done, I will get back at it.
Yesterday, before coming home, I went for the mail.  As I walked up the post office steps and nodded to people I didn't know, I thought, again, about how nice it was to be home. We have been here for two years now and, much to my continual surprise, I feel like a much loved kitten-content with the world.
I wouldn't like doing the exact same thing every day although I know some people find it comforting.  I think one of the things I like about quilting so much is that while it is quilting, it can be done in so many different ways.
If you are a quilter, you might be interested in knowing I will be posting a monthly block pattern-probably around the 15th.  It will start this month.  Most patterns will be traditional but others will be my own.  They will include foundation piecing, applique and rotary cut.
