I’m not really complaining – but I just have to blow off some steam so that I can get over this sewing block and actually get something accomplished!

I am a quilter.

Yes, I know how to use a sewing machine. Yes, I can follow patterns. Yes, I have sewn clothes in the past.

But I am a quilter.

So I want to make quilts.

But somehow I was coerced into making a dress for a young lady that is going to be a flower girl in a wedding. And by “coerced” I mean, someone asked me and I said “Yes” (I apparently cannot say “No” for any reason under the sun, even when I know that I don’t really want to do something!!)


Now, please remember that I am not really complaining. I don’t really mind making a dress for a flower girl. And I think this will be adorable when it is done.

But I actually have to get it done!!!

And wanting to sew something for someone and really sewing it are two wildly different things!!!

Each morning this month I have awakened and mentally marked on my list of things to do that I will get started on this dress. And each day goes by without doing anything!!

And because I am having this mental block about sewing the dress, I can’t get past it and work on anything else. And all my quilt projects are calling to me. They keep saying, “Get that dress done so you can come play with us.”

So today is the day!!! I am going to get this “thing” started!!! No more procrastination!!!
