Well, tonight I finally did it. I sat down at my trusty sewing machine after over three weeks. Yes, I had been on the road weekly for the last three weeks, with basically only one to four days home at a time... and yes, both of my children were home last week for Spring Break, so I was duly occupied.
But those are only excuses... I had time... but I couldn't bring myself to sit down at the machine.
I kept asking myself why, and last night while wasting time watching TV, I realized what it was. I LOVE my woven piece and I just wasn't up to quilting it. I was afraid I wasn't going to do the piece justice. I know I had chosen some wonderful threads... I had laid out the initial quilting pattern in my mind. But still I was apprehensive.
Well tonight... I finally broke down and began quilting it. I am happy I did. Nothing happened... it is looking just as I had pictured it. Ok... true, all I did tonight was the SID around the sun rays and some of the stone wall, BUT I quickly realized that this was not going to distract from the piece.
Now, I am excited to get the SID work done, so I can get the applique on! YES!!
Whew... has this ever happened to you? Have you made a top you just love and don't want to ruin it? I can't be alone in my thinking, am I??
