I agree with StarrySky, with this 'wow inspiring' quilt and the site that she posted about the other day, I am about ready to give up trying anything (almost)I do know that I am not about to show anybody some of my work, but my fingers are itching to try something. I like a challenge but this is something else.
I look at those quilts and think the makers must have maids and butlers, leaving them all the time in the world to concentrate on their craft. I know that's not true, but really - how do they do it?!
I'm not against trying new things, but I really REALLY need my life to be in order so I can concentrate 100% on what I'm trying. That means no sitting down to teach myself something while the dryer bell is buzzing, the oven timer is going off, the phone is ringing, and the cats are circling for food.
I read long ago that it's good to keep trying new things - keeps your brain "young" and "plastic." I believe it. But I also know that there are some achievements I will never achieve! And I'm in awe of those who do.
