involved a lot of laughing… at myself! I’ve written a lot about feeling frustrated at my slow pace and how I’ve been fighting it by looking back and reflecting on how far I’ve come. Well, on Tuesday, I looked back on my first blog. I can look back on the first skirt or blouse I made but when it comes to my first blog, I cringe. I’m like the Wicked Witch of the West at the end of The Wizard of Oz – I melt in horror! As I read each post, I couldn’t stop thinking, “I was sooo not cool!” My first blog and I were so bad that whenever I felt down or frustrated this week, I clicked back to my old site and laughed. “Oh Maddie!”
I’m ending this week not worrying about my pace. I’m not Speedy Gonzales but I am moving forward, learning, and most importantly, enjoying what I love to do everyday – sew. My red tafetta dress is close to being done, at least I think so. I had an idea that involved glitter. It’s a genius idea but it will delay the dress’s completion and my return to bra making. But who cares? Who keeping track? Not me.
