that sense of completion

In the same week I finished an elementary school artist residency, (clay with 220 children) and I sewed the final nub onto this 8 inch by 8 inch piece.  I have been feeling pretty self satisfied.  The residency was a monumental and rewarding task.  Lots of loud talking, hauling little fragile clay forms, hustle hustle, blossoming artists, get it done!  This little quilt, on the other hand, has been an exercise in tedium.  I could sew on about 8 little nubs an hour ( I made a short video about it for my website.  You want some real action? check it out.)  Its funny though, how often I’ve picked this quilt up and pondered it since I’ve finished.  It is almost as if I miss making it.
