On the one hand, I want to take my time and get everything right. On the other hand, I have to rush to finish every project, especially when I think someone is waiting on me.
I've been rushing my way through the Indian Orange Peel quilt and have gotten way ahead of my mentor. My excuse was that she was cutting the fabric and then sending it to me and I wanted to get it back to her as quick as possible so I wasn't slowing down her progress. And, the day I started, she was way ahead of me and I wanted to get caught up. But, those are just excuses. Sydney got sick, and because of computer problems, I couldn't work from home, and my Mom came to town and I was uncomfortable, so I sewed. And, I sewed, and sewed, and sewed. And, before I knew it, I was almost finished with the sections and my mentor sent me the message (through Rob, our mule because he carries stuff back and forth between us) to slow down so she could catch up.
Okay. I can do that. So, I packed up all the strips of fabric I had used part of and sent them to her and I moved back to the Cmas applique quilt I was working on before we started this. And, in my usual speedy fashion, I whipped out all the applique pieces for a house block last night and am ready to start applying them to the background.
OCD, it's for me! Can't stop. Gotta work. Gotta work fast until the project is done. Can't leave anything unfinished, because I might lose interest. And, once I've lost interest in a project, it's doomed!
Take care and have a great Wednesday. We're half way through the week. This weekend, I have to take the car to the shop. YIKES! See ya'. Lane
