The widespread application of the steam engines was considered a great stride in the progress of human history. It fueled the Industrial Revolution in the West that forever changed the social landscape of the world.
The successful voyage to the moon was considered a huge progress in human history for no one prior to that had ever been to the moon:
Well, let me assure you that the definition of “progress” is no where as lofty! In fact, I am even embarrassed to call it progress. But I do want to show you the pieces I have successfully appliqued to the first block of my Civil War Bride quilt.
From eons ago:
After 4 hours of work this past weekend preparing the pieces, doing the applique by hand, re-doing the applique because I was not happy with a particular shade of green and had to hunt for a more suitable fabric:
Some of you seasoned hand applique-ers will laugh at me because I really don’t have much to show for 4 hours. I am a newbie in hand applique and am terribly slow in handwork:
Baby steps is my motto. We often forget the eventual use of steam engines and the voyage to the moon were in themselves the culmination of countless baby steps… so, we don’t ever have to be ashamed of our WIP’s (work-in-progress). Well, it might be sheepish for us to admit the number of WIP’s we have, but we should never have to be embarrassed about them as long as we keep on working on them. So, my dear friends…. do you harbor any WIP’s? If so, what is your favorite WIP project? If you would further delight us, how many irons do you have burning in the fire at the moment?
Thanks for stopping by. I will have pictures of my WIP’s to show you as the week unfolds, but I do have a finish to show you this Friday. Stay tuned.
