WHAT HAPPNENS WHEN ONE SEEKS PERFECTION!




YEP....you guessed it....

Rip IT....RIP IT....but I can guarantee that there was not a smile on my face when I was ripping out for the 2nd time......

  1. For me 'frogging' is part of making a quilt. Painful, but you do what you have to do. What are you doing with those beautiful pinks?

  2. I hate ripping! I have to admit there are some things that I have ripped more than twice.

  3. Aww man! I hope there is a smile today. :)

  4. Aww. I get that way, too, sometimes. I'm trying to force myself to balance a demand for perfection on certain projects with a release of obsessiveness on others. I'm *almost* comfortable with that new approach. . .

  5. Poor Barb. I would not have been smiling either. Hope you are finished with the reverse stitch for a bit.

  10. Know the feeling well. But I bet that jumble of fabric is going to be gorgeous when you are done with it.

    I love this quote. To me it says should I reach perfection my life was be a bore! I need those imperfections to keep me growing.

  23. That's the story of my life when I sew for others. Sigh....it takes so much longer when I do that. Well, I'm off today so I'm back to the sewing machine after I hand-wash a load of dishes. You have to take the bitter with the sweet in life, even in sewing, I guess!

  28. Perfection is so overrated, don't you think? Personally, I wouldn't know anything about it. :-)
