I'll be honest, this project nearly didn't get finished.
Last week I was so close to sticking it in some dark cupboard to never be seen again.
The quilting is a DISASTER, oh my. I just couldn't fix it.
I was over it. Ugh, I never wanted to see it again.
But I remembered what I always say, that finished projects don't keep you warm
so I just decided to give up on the quilting, put some binding on
and call it finished, one million flaws and all.
But the thing is you don't see the flaws when you snuggle under it on the sofa.
Or when you sit in a sunny spot and do some knitting.
Or when you make yourself a quiet coffee and sit quietly for five minutes.
You don't notice the flaw when you put it over a bed to keep your kidlet warm.
All you see is the nice warm blanket doing what it is meant to.
I debated taking pictures of all the terrible puckering down the side of this quilt,
but just imagine it looks like what ever is holding you back in your project.
I am sure that every single person reading this has some project
(not just sewing projects) not quite finished.
Whether it is tidying the garage, planting some bulbs,
writing a letter, or sewing the buttons on a jumper.
Just do what it takes so that you can start using it.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to unpick bits of this at some point and fix it,
but in the meantime we can USE it.
What would it take for you to be able to use your project??
Then do it!!
Look what Talia did! She finished her quilt and she is so happy with it,
I would be too, it's just a lovely lovely quilt. Go Talia.
Go all of you!
