I love reading quilting and sewing blogs. There are so many fantastic artists out there who are gracious enough to share their work and their process.
But sometimes their awesome blogs make me scared to share.
I don’t have money to spend on a fancy machine or designer fabrics all the time.
I live far enough out that it’s hard to join any quilting guilds or meet ups to get to know other cool people.
Sometimes my seams don’t match up and I don’t care enough to rip it out and make it perfect. My quilting is adequate at best. My binding is very spotty.
This is my attempt to organize a portion of my fabrics. And I was proud of it.
This is me. And this is my sewing. And rather than feeling chagrined to show my projects or set up, I’m going to own it. Because this is me. And I’m not perfect, but I love it and I try, and my projects are made with love.
To be clear, I don’t think anyone is judging me but myself. I am my own worst critic! But I hope this year I will be gentle with myself and proud of myself in my sewing.
