I've got nothing to say

I've got nothing to say today, other than I feel like a big failure. Sigh. Now I need to confess it to a co-worker. It's not about work, my job is a slackers wet dream. No, it is a sewing failure. Which is really strange and uncomfortable for me. My pride and self-confidence are shattered (well, bruised)

I have failed in making a baby quilt. I have no problems with making one, but this one was a copy of one from a picture and I tried to make it 4 times and I couldn't get the embroidery right. It looks like shit. I feel really bad about it, I'm actually horrified about it. After my 4th try, I altered the quilt she bought, but didn't really like and made it much cuter and more matching her theme, but it is not at all like the picture of the one she wanted that was discontinued. Now I just have to tell her about my failure. Maybe I'll get hit by a bus first. Naw, I couldn't get that lucky. If you look up "ashamed" in the dictionary, you'll see a picture of me.

We are much harder on ourselves than others are, let up on yourself a little.

Lately I am working on learning that some things take a long time to be able to do. Like a few years ago I gave up on sewing hearts on the machine. Believe it or not I couldn't get the curve right. Like you I tried again and again and couldn't do it. Now I have tried again and can. Maybe if you give it a rest for awhile you can try again later with success.

Don't be so hard on yourself - I CAN"T EVEN FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE MY SEWING MACHINE.

I wished I lived near you, Christy, I'd teach you to sew and I'd babysit.

Christy said...

I wish you lived near me too. I'd take you up on both offers!

HI carrie. I'm sorry you couldn't get it the way you wanted but I bet she will love what you did to the other one.

Carrie said...

Thanks Peanut! She did like the other one, It's just that I hate to fail.

Oh, it is so stressful when you try, try again and still fail! Also, I wonder if the other commenters are not correct in saying that you are probably harder on yourself than others.
