I think what really got me going was a page in Carole Samples "Treasury " book. It is on pg. 10 that our Dear Carole writes (and I hope I am not breaking any laws here by quoting her) ,"When you are ready, this book will be there as a loving substitute for a living person who knows exactly what to do, helping you to realize that its not about perfection. It's all about making as much beauty as you can for yourself and others. The endeavor asks only that you give yourself permission to make mistakes until you have mastered all of the necessary techniques - and you will."
Didn't that speak to me when I needed it!? I am off on something good now...
During the making of this block, my Kenny (Kenmore) decided that he would not wind anymore bobbins thus his unfaithful self had to go for rehab. I had to call out Mark (F.W.), and proceed from there. We are getting to know each other fairly well in Kens absence, I may even love him, but via a phone call I heard Ken is a new man again and wants to come home. Mark and I are hitting it off real well so Ken may not be in my life much longer unless he makes some changes. Something tells me I have outgrown Ken and we may need to move on to new relationships. I may be ready for something daring, a much more savy, mechanically minded guy. Stay tuned for that!
Sharon over at http://commonsense2creativity.blogspot.com/ posted a pic of her CQ/embroidery books so I thought I would do the same. These are the books I use for inspiration and ideas.
