Sewing My Life Together

It’s All (Mostly) Good

 

Several things changed my thinking today….the comments on my previous post, plus a trip to my local quilt store. I am in the process of doing a block-a-month at this quilt shop, and the instructors there know my struggles with accurate seam lines, getting points on triangle correct, and they are very helpful. So  I went to my block-of-the-month group and was pleasantly surprised when I noticed (as did the instructor) that I am, indeed, getting better.

 

And I  decided that since I love making the cards, and each one of them is a little bit of a piece of art, that making them is enough. They are, at the moment, my art. And art is a process, and not a product….and as I am improving in my traditional quilting skills, plus creating new cards and designs, thinking about doing new things and trying new things….well, the future looks good!

 

 

And there are three blocks-of-the-month for August! What a treat and a challenge!

 

 

 

 

 

So I have put yesterday’s discouragement into perspective and am reminded that I am still a beginner here and don’t know where it will end.

 

 

But the process is the journey, not the product.

 

So I am once again, if not perfectly happy, content with my journey. Thanks to my readers for their comments.
