The Nester had a crazy fun carnival yesterday. She asked to see all our imperfections. This was just the motivation I needed to start, finish and post a project I have been considering doing but was afraid to start. Perfectionism keeps me from starting so many things.
The freedom to do something imperfectly allowed me to cut this perfectly good comforter.
What else is going on in this room? Well, Monday and Friday are my laundry days so I was folding laundry throughout the morning. Our baby girl was taking a snooze in her swing. There was also some bible reading going on because I was listening to Charles Stanley while I cut the comforter. He said go to Colossians 1 and since he was talking about prayer I did, because I love prayer.
This is what was going on in the next room. Have you ever watched Jack's Big Music Show? I love the Schwartzman Quartet.
After the quilt was cut I had to Make Room For....my sewing machine on my craft table. Yes, I know, this looks like it should be a dining room table. We're not dining room people right now, so I claimed this area for all my crafts and I have never regretted it (except when it gets messy.)
There, see, plenty of room for the sewing machine. Now let us not forget I had a baby about 12 weeks ago and this, I am certain, is the reason my right knee looks so HUGE. Just keepin' it real people, I could have cropped that out.
Actually, not a bad idea to crop that whole mess out along with my giant knee.
What is perfectionism keeping you from starting?
