By observing our envy, we shine light on our true desires. - Danielle LaPorte
She poses a question to us: What kind of success are you envious of?
I thought that was a great question, because I have been looking with great longing at these fabulous designs that people are quilting with their fancy quilting machines. I have looked with great longing for many years now at their work and wished i could do similar things. When I got my last
But really,, all that was just a way to whine
I am thinking I need to adjust my thoughts
to want to do the work; to revel in the work. My mindset needs to be tweaked so it becomes pleasurable to run the machine over the cloth sandwich. Work needs to become play.
Can I do it? Maybe. I know that I am not usually happy with repetition and work that is not easy to do. It will take effort to make myself put in the practice to get where I want to be.
And i also know most likely I will never be a "perfect" quilter who wins at the Houston show. But I do know I can outshine myself.
I spent the late hours of last night quietly curled up on the sofa with DiNozzo practicing making feathers. I hit upon a method I think I will use. As you can see I got better and better with each set of feathers. I also learned how to make those little circles! So cool.
Now I can circle till the cows come home!
Keep our veterans in your hearts! I have 3 generations of Veterans in my life. I am proud of each of them!
