My Mom and I were together on Saturday and I asked her if she wanted to see the finished Chicken quilt flimsy.
Remember back in November she didn't think much of it. (The Value of "Meh.")
As we spread it out on my bed, my Mom said, "This is handsome. The colors you used are so beautiful together."
"They aren't my colors, but you've done a beautiful job with them. Those greys and the fabrics you chose for the dull words are just beautiful. This is wonderful."
When I told my pal Julie about my Mom's "Meh" remark back in November, I added, "Now my challenge is to take the Chicken Quilt from 'Meh' to 'Awesome.'"
"You're not worried you can do that, are you?" Julie asked.
Way back when I was a teenager and I was making myself some clothes, I
got to a point where I just thought it was going to be terrible. My Mom
reassured me, "Lynne there's always a point when you're making something
and it just looks awful. It's not far enough along so you can see
anything good about it. It's all in pieces and you don't know how it's
ever going to look the way you imagined. But you have to stick with it."
