So I’ve been working on my coffee quilt on the bus going to work in the mornings, as well as in the coffeeshop area AT work for about 45 minutes before I have to be at work. This gives me time to wake my brain up and lets spend a little time every working on the quilting. Yesterday a woman approached me and asked if I did them for sale as she wanted one. She was really surprised and seemed almost insulted when I told her no and the reasons why. I dunno. Today a lady stopped for a closer look, and she told me she used to quilt before her arthritis took over her hands. She was very nice and was thrilled that there was a person under the age of 50 quilting…in public, no less!
I guess you’re more likely to see knitting, crocheting, or embroidery in those situations, as they’re more portable. This quilt isn’t that big (44″ x 44″) and I can sit on the bus and ensure that I’m not taking up an inch of seat or floor space of the seat next to me. 😀 I do have to get a spot where I can put my feet or knees up, though, but that’s not hard as there is hardly anyone on my bus at 6:53 a.m. at my stop.
