Information about MIQuilter that will finally make your life complete.
No, not really.
I’m the only mommy on this blog who doesn’t have human children. I have 12 furry legs in the house and dozens of scaly tails and gills but nothing at all with an opposable thumb besides myself and Husband. And I like to think that that’s ok.
I am the middle sister and thus obviously the black sheep of the family but I have the fortune of being only ½ hour away from a niece and nephew. It’s the perfect distance – I can see them any time I like, but I can also escape to a distance that exceeds their vocal range.
Over the past few years I have been in a first-third-of-the-life-crisis and have been searching for a much more interesting full time job than I currently have. Part of the problem is that most anything is more interesting than my full time job. The rest of the problem is that most things pay much less than my full time job.
I tried, for a time, to make baking my new profession. However, I realized that I got no satisfaction from it. You deliver a wedding cake hours before the event and never get to see anyone enjoying the fruits of your labor. And, I already have a job that I get no real satisfaction from… so I got very de-motivated to continue down that road.
Now, I have a fantasy where I can do web development ½ time to help pay the bills and then spend the rest of the time quilting. I’d like to be a famous quilter. I really am not interested in fame – but then fame in the quilting world is way different than, say, a movie star. Put a movie star in front of a hundred people and probably at least 80 of them will know the name of the star and at least one movie that they have been in. If you take that same room of 100 people, none of them might know the “famous” quilter. Even if it’s in a room of 100 quilters. It’s more along the lines of “poll 1000 quilters and if 1 recognizes your name and you do not personally know them, you’re famous!”. Hurrah. Really, it would be cool if anybody over the course of my life said, upon introduction, “oh, YOU’RE MIQuilter? I’ve heard of you”. That’s just the right level of fame.
