The Wisdom of Mary Englebreit

I have to share some great sayings that have graced my Mary Englebreit calendar (without which I cannot live) recently.

“In order to have a real relationship
With our creativity,
We must take the time
And care to cultivate it.”
-Julia Cameron

“The cure for boredom
Is curiosity.
There is no cure
For curiosity.”
- Ellen Parr

The photo I chose to illustrate these great sentiments is one sent to me by my virtual quilt buddy from Woodland Park, Colorado. This is such a cute picture of her machine quilting (up to her neck) her Moda University quilt. The blocks on the design wall behind her are for a Happy Trails quilt for her husband. I am so proud of her wonderful quilts and I love this photo of Karla which shows her beautiful face and spirit.

No cure for curiosity? Then I guess I am terminally curious!
Yes, she looks like a good quilting buddy!

I love the quote about curiosity! Boredom is a disease, and fortunately, one I seldom suffer. Curiosity, however, is almost like a reward that keeps the world interesting.

I too love the quote about curiosity and boredom. I tell my kids that there's no excuse for being bored.
