A few weeks ago I bumped into someone who had been at one of my trunk shows. It turns out I had inspired her to try crazy quilting. Yay! She showed me her work and it was beautiful. Her stitching was very fine and delicate. Since seeing her stitching I have felt a little bad about my own. My stitching is big and bold and this piece really emphasizes that. I love this crazy quilt block. The colours are cheerful and it makes me happy. Why do I feel bad that my stitches are not fine and delicate? I need to learn to admire someone else's beautiful stitching without allowing it to make me feel that mine is inadequate. After all, I want to be the best me and if that is big and bold, so be it.
