Happy New Year to everyone.
Earlier I posted this on my Facebook page but I want to share it here as well.
In quilting (and in life) we sometimes are too concerned with perfection.
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
― Neil Gaiman
I plan to make a lot 🙂
I got my Alphabet quilt top finished. (it does have a few imperfections but that is OK)
I will post some about the hand quilting plan next time
Happy New Year
and don’t be afraid to make a few mistakes
