Here's a motivational quote for you Judy. It's a bit long but the
words do make you stop and pause for a moment....
"The hardest times have been when it looks as though nothing
is happening or, worse, when it looks as though something is
definitely wrong in my life. "It's not working", I say to myself.
Then I remember the scrap pile filled with odd pieces of
material of those early quilters. Nothing was wasted. Out came
those glorious quilts.
I have to keep reminding myself that nothing I am doing is
wasted time. I may not understand or like what is happening, but
I can begin th appreciate that the impase is another marker on
the way." - Sue Bender
