Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. . . just explaining. I am quite used to this crazy life of putting out fires. Probably too used to it. . .
Anyway, in the midst of all this, I was trying to meet a deadline (well, several) to get a quilt done for McCalls magazine. I didn't really have a plan, so I just started sewing--and adding things to my design wall, thinking that it would come together. I knew that it wasn't looking very cute, but I pushed ahead, forcing it to be done and be cute.
Finally I had to admit that it really was very ugly, and that I simply could not send it to any magazine, or even publish it myself. So I scrapped it and started all over. Does that ever happen to you?
Here is just a peek. I can't show you the whole project, but I must say, I am so glad I started over. It really did turn out quite well, and I am happy with it. I love yo-yos, don't you?
I also have to report that I finally got my Double Dutch pattern written and printed. It has been weighing on my mind because people were waiting for it, and I was slow.
One reason I am telling you all the things I have accomplished this week is because I have so much more to do, and I need the encouragement. It is risky, telling you of my many faults, but then I realize that you are probably quite aware since it is quite obvious, and I might as well admit it.
Here's hoping that I get lots done tomorrow! And you too!
