As I sit in dentist's or doctor's offices, or wait on my boys for their Boot Camps and races and what not, I usually bring something to work on -- right now it's either Circuit Rider applique blocks or my English Paper Piecing Tumbling Blocks. People are always admiring and say they "could never..." It gets me thinking. Why do I quilt?

Listening to my 16 year old son blather on (!so cool when kids are excited about something and want to tell you every single infinitesimal detail, huh!? :-D) about his lessons and their difficulty and his excitement about overcoming the challenges, it occurred to me that I quilt for the same reasons that I homeschool.
I want to pour my life into something that lasts beyond me.
