Over at Lisa Jo's she gives us an idea(prompt) and we write for 5 minutes. Just plain 'ole writing.
No editing. No backtracking. Nothing more than what comes to mind from the prompt.
Wow. What a word. I almost didn't write about Finish.
You see 'Finish' and I kind of have a thing. It's terrible I know but I don't 'Finish' well. When I think about it. I think it is because I am basically a perfectionist. I get a great idea.
I get all into it and if it doesn't come out like I expect. I don't finish! My family is even frustrated with me. My Cowboy sees projects in various stages (mostly in the sewing room)
I want everything thing to be what I expect it to be. Whether it is a quilt or other craft item. I don't like to make changes or substitute. I guess it's because I constantly do that in other areas. Settling for what I would consider 2nd best. Or not really what I want. But when it comes to my crafting and mostly quilting I want perfection. I want the colors just right.
I want my stitching just right. I want to be proud (not in a vain way) of the quilts I finish. I just want to be able to show them to someone with no fear of mistakes being found. I am feeling confident now in my abilities. And all those quilts that my family think are 'unfinished.' They aren't. The tops are 'finished'. So really that isn't totally unfinished is it? I guess it is. I am confident now in my quilting and who knows maybe I'll show them some projects that they will call 'Finished' soon!
I usually try to spend a little time in my sewing room on Saturdays. And tomorrow would be a perfect time to Finish something. But,
I got invited to go to a quilt show tomorrow. So I'll go and get some inspiration to Finish!
