Assertive Bill of Rights

I HAVE THE RIGHT…

to be responsible for my own life

to accept and respect myself and others

to feel happy, satisfied and to allow inner peace

to take good care of my whole being:my body, my mind and my spirit

to be imperfect

to be aware of and fulfill my own needs

to have dreams, goals and ideas – and to make them happen

to have and express all my emotions

to tell others how i want to be treated

to allow people to help me without feeling guilt, unworthy or dependent

to set my own priorities about my use of time, money, space and energy

to get what I pay for

to have a healthy, life-enhancing relationships, where clear communication is valued

to change, emerge, and expand in new directions

to have my own beliefs, ideas, and values without apology to anyone

to live in the present moment, free of guilt in the past and worry for the future to relax, to let go, and to do “nothing”

Not Everything is Cancelled

As we head into yet another lock down it is important to try and remain positive and count our blessings instead of our sorrows. As quilters we are all creative and ambitious people. So count this time alone with your fabric and sewing machine as an opportunity to embrace your inner magnificent and happy self. Try some new techniques that challenge you, make a new themed runner for Spring, help someone save an older well-loved quilt by repairing some of the torn and ripped sections, call a quilt friend and share what you are doing.

Wrap yourself in your favourite quilt and snuggle up with your favourite book!
