Starting all over again.....

Wow - I knew it had been awhile since I posted, but I didn't realize it had been that long!  When we attend Quilt Market, they say you are supposed to do all kinds of Social Media all the time.  Some of my fellow shop owners seem to be pretty good at posting things all over the place and still running a decent shop and keeping up with on line orders.  I am pretty sure that these super women are really not human at all - perhaps they are aliens that require no sleep, and they have little alien sweat shops that keep things running. 

I don't require a lot of sleep, and I often go for weeks at a time without getting more that 5-6 hours (or a lot less) every night.  People tell me that is not good, but truthfully, I usually get the most work done between 10 and 2 a.m.  What is wrong with that?  So, my clock is backwards.  Maybe I was born at 10 at night, so that is my morning.  Who knows.  Are any of you like me?  Do you wonder why the morning people get to set all the rules about when things are supposed to be open or closed. 

Oh well - I guess I will just keep going along and trying to fit into this backwards world. 

Last week my sister sent me a link to a blog that is written by a girl I went to High School with, Barbara Mahaney.  She used to be Barbie then - and always will be in my mind (sorry Barbie).  I have followed her career with interest, as she has been a writer for the Tribune for quite awhile.  She writes those great lifestyle articles that make you think, and often bring tears and smiles.  She is a really wonderful writer, and her blog, "Pull Up a Chair," http://pullupachair.org/  is really a nice way to start your day (no matter what time you start).  It might be a little bit spiritual for some of you, but sometimes it is nice to just read something peaceful. 

Anyway, I have always liked to write - although I do know that I tend to babble on a bit - so I thought maybe I will give this blog thing another go around.  I might not write every day, but I will try to be regular, at least.  I will share what is going on in my quilting world, and a little about the rest of my life - if I find it humorous or uplifting.  I am pretty sure nobody wants to know a blow by blow about all the insanity of my normal days!

So - keep watching my Pieceful Blog - and I will try to bring a little piece and peace to your days!

Thought for the Day - DIE SNOW DIE!


  1. yes, I'm the same way...I do most of my work late at night...just sit and stare in the morning....6-7 hrs of sleep

  2. Welcome back to blog land!! I will be watching to see what you are up to. Karen

  3. Die snow die...I like it. Blog on. I tend to get lots more done in the wee hours of the night too. I think those morning people are just louder. :)
