Some of you may have noticed that I’ve done a bit of housekeeping around the old blog. I’ve also added a new button “I took the process pledge“. It’s purpose is to inspire quilters to blog more frequently about the process of quilting, they trials, errors, planning, etc as well as the finished products.
But of course I immediately thought this can be applied to just about any craft, hobby, passion, whatever moves you to create. Being a knitting and aspiring quilter I thought it more than appropriate to apply that principle here. So I will try my best to “process out loud”. Also as the beginner of a new discipline and skilled disciple of another, I’m sure there are others out there who may learn from my processing.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been tooling around the internet and see all these beautiful finished items and I say to myself…how does one get that perfect? What did it take to get there? To get the holes between the fingers of a knitted glove to disappear, to make a delicious chocolate cake with the icing picture perfect, to sew the binding on a quilt and not have your stitches show.
I don’t know about you but it’s so comforting to see that someone other than, what feels in the moment like just me can make a mistake or have to redo or rethink or rip out or use the “F” word because they’ve made the same mistake 5 times in a row.
All that said…I promise to share my processing and not be afraid to show the runs in my stockings. (you know what I mean).
