On the other hand... my haphazard approach to sewing often ends with a crumpled heap of fabric in the corner scowling rudely at me as I hurl expletives at it! Oh so many a project has befallen this dreadful fate.
I know the old adage, "measure twice, cut once" but in my land of "what's the worst that could happen?!" I tend to cut before I look. And hence far too many beautiful fabrics have been butchered under my rather unskilled hands. Expletives aplenty!!!
So when it was time on this crafting adventure to give quilting a whirl (actually, the big girl bed is screaming for one!) I simply knew this wasn't one I was going to be able to wing. Enter the most perfect local quilt shop ,their bevvy of brilliant teachers and two and a half hours on a Wednesday night of me time sans the poppet!
And you know what I've learned so far? I kinda like me!!
So this week joining in with Maxabella Loves, I am ever so grateful for learning! From learning how to use a rotary cutter to cut fabric as opposed to giving myself an impromptu manicure....to learning to sew slower than a grand prix driver in order to actually make seams even (who woulda thought!!!). But most importantly...learning that I am perfectly flawed, just like every other wonderful human being out there. I will stuff things up...I will be useless at others....I will throw fabric...and expletives. But that's who I am! And I'm still learning just who that is.
