Learning a motif and repeating it will only get you so far in your quilting skills...Yes, practice helps, but "how you practice" is more important than "that you practice."

Recently, I found myself jealous of a home I visited…everything, and I mean everything was in its place. It wasn’t one of those crazy, frantic clean up before company comes, sort of visits. It was a surprise visit. An, “oh, so glad you stopped by.”

I get caught up in making something “shiny” that will draw attention to my IG account or Facebook world. I find myself making something that “I” am not crazy about because I think that “others” will like it.

That is just flat out silly. I mean really, I was a runner. I ran a marathon. You don’t just walk out your front door and run 26.2 miles. It took me a year to get to that point. I lost 100 pounds. I didn’t just wake up one day and say, I am going to lose 100 pounds, and the next day they were gone. It took me 18 months to lose 100 pounds.
Why do we do that to ourselves? Why do we expect perfection for every single thing we sew?

I was working hard, without even realizing it, to justify WHY I quilt/sew/create. I was working hard, without even realizing it, to justify THE AMOUNT OF TIME I spend doing those things. WHY? Where did that come from? While there is truth to them, they aren’t the REASON I create, sew or quilt.

Stop it already! Really, please...stop it! There is so much beauty in the creation process. The truth is, that we have forgotten who we are and/or we haven't taken the time to get to know each other.
