Perfect Piecing + Flawless Stitching = The Impossible
My current project is slowly, and I mean slowly coming along. As I plug away every now and then I will stand back and scan the small progress I have made AND analyze my work. When I say “analyze” I mean scrutinize every tiny minuscule stitch and aspect of my quilt. Which has now led me to discovering a part of the design that does not appear exactly the way I feel it should.
Rather than remaining stressed over a small mishap that I had observed due to my OCD of going over the project with a magnifying glass; I need to move on. Is anyone going to be aware of my mistake? Not unless I tell them, right?!
Nope, no one will see that itsy, bitsy, teeny, tiny, imperfection when they view the quilt in its entirety. Yes, I will forever know where that flaw resides, but I cannot sweat the small stuff. Life is way too short. And if I constantly chose to sweat the small stuff in my studio, OMG, I would achieve zip, zero, zilch! Besides the fact that I would be very unproductive, I also believe that those small imperfections allows me to perfect who I want to become. So I pick my battles and strive to choose the ones that really matter!
