They don't tell you when you begin quilting about the HARD stuff.
One of the hardest things for me is cutting up the fabric.
Making that FIRST cut.......
This time it involved cutting an old bathing costume/suit.
an old dress.
When people know you quilt...
They ask you do HARD things for them like cutting up OLD clothes!!
It's not hard TALKING about it!
IT's hard DOING IT!!!
I sometimes even have trouble cutting precious NEW fabric.
It was especially troubling after my daughter
that old bathing suit.
Bloomers, cap and all!!!!
I've tried to give myself PEP talks:
"It's o.k. Beth.
No one will ever wear this again."
the pep talks didn't work.
I had to cut it up and FELT terrible afterwards.
Can't wait until I'm all done with this project for my friend.
I know she'll LOVE it...
and that's what I'm trying to focus on!!!
It will be SOoooo nice when I don't have any more
about being IN TROUBLE
cutting Grandma's DRESS!!!!!
