So they say...!

I have often heard amongst quilters the notion that "to own a quilt shop must be total bliss, as one gets to quilt all day!"

Let me say that bliss it is, provided you are following your heart, however the quilting all day is none existent! lol  Any quilting I do, is done after work hours.

Lately, I find myself continuously pulled in various directions; do I read a book, do I work on a project, if so will it be hand work, machine work.... Perhaps I ought to go for a walk and get a bit of fresh air... oh wait, I have a couple of social engagement this week, I must re-work my schedule to fit my commitments.

Life is balance!

The hardest task for me has been to find that balance!  I must admit, it is not easy, but I am managing.  What you may ask is the basis of this blog entry? 

Joseph Campbell!  Oh, how I love that man.  Although I know within myself that I am following my bliss, when I listen to his lectures, there is a part of me that wants to further my education.  I am passionate about knowledge.

If I have one complaint from following my present bliss, it is being continuously immersed in quilting.  But, at the moment, I would much rather be immersed in quilting than schooling!

So, I will continue to listen to Joseph Campbell and quilt!

Here is what I have accomplished on my path to following my bliss. ;o)  The first installment of the Mill House Girls Block of the month.


A while back I had blogged about the shop kit, well... it has been nagging at me and today was the day I would put an end to that nagging! ;o)

I do hope you are following your bliss!  Keep well and thank you for stopping by my little corner in cyberspace!

Cheers!

I'm glad that you are going to continue to follow your bliss with quilting.

Your block looks beautiful.

What a pretty block! I've always been afraid that if I owned a quilt shop I would end up hating quilting. But, it seems that many quilt shop owners do still love it!
