I mentioned that I made her niece and nephew a quilt - and she said, "Mine should come first!" in this huffy tone.
And I was forced to defend making a baby quilt.
Then - I stopped.
This is MY hobby. This is something I do for joy and for peace of mind. And I told her that. I basically told her to back off - this is my hobby and she is not allowed to hijack it.
It really made me cranky.
Has this every happened to you? I find that more and more people EXPECT me to make them a quilt.
And honestly - I don't always want to. Not that I don't care about them, but I want my hobby to be mine. And my hobby isn't theirs to guilt me over.
I am free to make what I want, when I want. It is a hobby. Not a job. They aren't paying me for it.
So - I am making a stand. Quilting is for me. For my joy. And I am taking it back.
Fabric is taking over my house...
