Then I wouldn't put lots more work into this -
Which is now going to lead to lots of time spent with this little doohickey -
I am too stubborn for my own good. The inner critic was virtually screaming at me that it wasn't looking good. It was not working the way I wanted it to. But it was my idea and I was going to stick to it. Yeah, that's me, the fool. Because when I eventually finished piecing the entire quilt top today and laid it out for the final time I realised that critic of mine was so right. What I have done sucks. It is so mind boggling bad that I am not going to take a picture of it because I would be able to hear the laughter without the aid of electronic equipment. So yards of stitching to pull out before I can try again, a different way, to piece together the simple blocks I made.
I am not going to do it tonight. I would rather roll balls of wool. That about sums it up.
Hang in there Susan - no mistakes just irritating lessons learned. My stitch ripper is my best buddy but I know it is so discouraging to have to face lots of unpicking. But if you're really not happy and hour or two unpicking will be worth it in the end. Is that enough platitudes for you? Take another look before you unpick, maybe it will look better tomorrow!ReplyDelete
