LOL sewed a few inches of bobbin 17 and realized I’d bumped the zigzag control and was sewing the most zigzaggy line creating spirals and curves… not quite what I was looking for at this point. A short spell of undoing and now…
Number seventeen may or may not be the last bobbin but it may be. I listened to the video lectures for my online class, sometimes thinking – sometimes a bird is just a bird, sometimes bread is just bread but do go on.
I succeeded in listening to it all and managed to come out thinking that I may be the most simple-minded person in the entire universe, but that’s ok.
That’s it, I’m taking my second muggacoffee and going off to quilt. I’m going to listen to something and not get tied up in Olympics or the Interwebs for awhile I hope. I’m going to let the thread flow, so to speak.
Last night I realized I was at that point in the work where I am both anxious and concerned about finishing this quilt (make the deadline, how to finish edges, how will it turn out, will it be flat enough, why do I insist on making things so hard to photograph) and wanting to make something new (what if it was not pieced, how could I…, could I use…)
This apparent conflict never makes me want to stop going forward with the current thing, thankfully, and I’ve known it long enough not to be concerned. It’s sort of the natural flow of making things. All good.
I stole this TEDx piece from Sandy Donabed who combs the web for cool stuff to show me (I’m sure that’s why she comes up with such cool stuff! and thanks!)
and for something completely different, and a little longer (via Robert Genn’s newsletter and compete with Danish subtitles):
