Some time last year the lovely Ann invited me to be part of a the geese in a ring bee
that she was running. I was flattered and honoured to be asked
and after a a bit of to-ing and fro-ing I said yes.
I have made the seven blocks required in the required colours
and they look ok. But they are late, very very late,
I hate being late and I hate letting people down.
The tension in my machine didn't like the paper,
also the blocks I received had amazing neat seam allowances
and mine are all over the place.
I found the blocks really really hard to do.
The paper piecing nearly killed me actually. I have to confess I hated it.
But I did finish them and I was so proud of them.
I was so so happy with how they were turning out,
but then I saw the others and I didn't like mine.
Doesn't anyone else have this problem??
I'm not a bad quilter, but I get terrible performance anxiety when I have to do something
specific for someone to a dead line.
I'm more than happy to make something and go, that's good enough to give away
but making to order, it just doesn't suit me.
Lesson learned the hard way, but I guess it's just my pride that's dented!
I've brought a peace offering to go with my bee blocks,
a fat quarter and some chocolate.
I hope it sweetens the deal.
Does anyone else have this trouble or just me??
