Hello Friends, I have been working with these fabrics, and they are entirely related to my drama earlier this week, though not responsible. I am to be blamed.
Malady — Over the weekend, I had a relapse of my flu I had a few weeks ago. So I was back to the head pressure, Muscle aches etc. You get the idea. But then since I had looming deadlines, and the fact that I wasn’t flat on my back… I kept going.
Mistakes — Monday Morning, I was feeling pretty good about my quilt top because all I had left was 5-6 blocks, and I would be able to get the quilt done within the next 12 hours or so…. until I noticed 24 of the completed blocks had to be redone due to glaring Mistakes!!! What a Mess! Don’t get me wrong — the construction had been so Much fun! The quilt is a fun quilt, I promise!!!
[Are you seeing all my M words yet?! HA.]
Momentary setback — I had planned to have the quilt completed and shipped yesterday! The thought of having to take out stitches and redoing all 24 blocks sent me straight to the depths of the Mires of Melancholy. There was quite a bit of feeling sorry going around in our house that day. My husband felt sorry for me. Miss Baby felt sorry for me. I felt sorry for me.
Motivation — An editorial assignment is something to be Made happen – and that is the Motivation I needed to keep going on! So, Many hours later (the un-stitching and re-stitching took the longest), and Motivational speeches directed to myself, I have a sneak preview for you!
I have to say that I am thankful for the editorial assignments in my life – because they Make sure I complete My quilts! And that brings up to My next series of questions…
#1. What you would have done if the quilt wasn’t for work, per se… would you just set the quilt aside for a while and work on something else and then come back to face the Music?
#2. What tactics you have employed to help you get past Multiples Mistakes you spot on a quilt top — do you just leave them as they are, or do you embark on an un-stitching crusade?
#3. If you are the type that sets aside the quilt, what do you do to get yourself back to the project?
Thanks for stopping by – please note the humorous undertone of this post! I am not about to jump off a cliff (though the thought Might have flashed through My Mind for a Millisecond). Hugs to you all. Till next time!
