Feeling relieved


It is with much relief that I have been able to get my idea for the Quilt Project out of my head and onto paper (do I see other heads out there nodding...??). Stitches have been tried and practiced thanks to a book borrowed from the library, and now I'm ready to start on my "good copy".

After feeling nervous and worried and other similar emotions, now I'm excited and can't wait to get started.

To have a peek some other delicious red goodness, head over here.

My idea is still in my head and I haven't practiced.
I actually started to panic about it today and I went back and checked the closing date... luckily it's Sept 20!

I don't Quilt, but I love your enthusiasm and excitement. Hope it goes as good or better than planned!

Gina said...

Yup, well, I'm still stuck for an idea. Yours however looks great... yes, I can see that little design sneaky-peaking underneath! Hurrah.

Sandrine said...

I can see some drawings, some stitches...Enjoy your little challenge!;)

How fun! I want to learn embroidery too! I brought three blue and white stripe tea towels from Freedom the other day for $2 each and fancied that I would add a bit of stitching to them! Fingers crossed!

Can't wait to see what you are stitching. All the best. :)

Yep. I was head nodding. Then panicking MORE! I hadn't factored in the practise bit...(yeek)

Good for you. I sometimes become afraid when I have an idea in my head for too long. I am afraid I will lose it or forget just what made it important.

Good on you - I need to get moving with mine - great idea to do a practise one first. Oh dear, I'm a bit stressed now!!

Oooh, I can't wait to see your finished design. Your outline looks very exciting - a family group maybe?

Good on you teaching yourself all those new very fancy embroidery stitches. I think I should borrow the book you recommended - it sounds great.
