Asking for prayers -- totally on-topic

Post by Sunn » Fri, 14 Aug 2009 10:46:42



Ok, I'm committed to making a Jacob's Ladder quilt using really
gorgeous fabric. It's an easy block that I've used before. But this
will be a special quilt for a special baby and I've already bombed one
quilt top that now will become .... something other than a quilt for
her. I'm having a hard time lately. My hands are shaking again. And
other stuff that would just be TMI but it gets in the way of doing
good work.

So I'm asking for prayers, good thoughts, special wishes, good spells,
incantations, wishbone wishes.... you name it. I can use all the help
I can get. I just can't afford to cut into this fabric and make the
stupid and expensive mistakes I made trying to work last week. I could
use a big dose of confidence, and some stillness -- both of the inner,
spiritual type and the outer, hand-eye coordination type.

Thanks in advance,
Sunny

Oh Sunny, I sure hope you are doing better soon.
Remember the old woodworkers saying.  Measure
twice, cut once.  I'm sure you are going to get it right this time.  YOu
have all our energy heading your way to help you along.
Hugs, Taria

Awww now, Sunny.  Get a grip.  On the other hand, just relax and climb in.
If you make a mistake, we will find a way to fix it.  Just no telling what
all we could fix with our collective wisdom.
    Decades ago, I was cutting out a suit of UltraSuede with an
incomprehensible Vogue pattern.  (UltraSuede was staggeringly expensive and
has a right/wrong side, changes colors if you change directions and is way
too tough to cut more than one thickness at a time.)  Little challenges like
not wanting 2 left sleeves or one of the skirt's backs to be 3 shades
lighter than the other.
    I wondered what in the world the awful stink was only to see that I'd
put out a cigarette in the standard tomato pincushion.  Phew.
    Shaky?  Yes.  I was.
    Incantations?  Don't know how but there may be some here who do.  I'll
only send prayers winging their way for you from the Swamp.   And hugs.
Polly

I think we all lose our confidence sometime or other.  Remember, "if a
person never makes mistakes, that person is doing nothing!" or something to
that effect.
Breath deep and jump in,
Hugs,

All positive things to you.  Remember you can do this.  It is only
nerves that is preventing you from doing this all in your stride.  So,
deep breath.  Check all your instructions.  Clear the decks and take
the phone off the hook.  Then settle down and just do it.  It will
come right, but from the slogan on my t-shirt...

Don't cut any corners, even if you normally would
Do everything calmly and forget about how long it 'usually' takes you.
It will take as long as it takes
It will be beautiful, finished
Only you will notice mistakes
Ariadne got turned into a spider (shudder) for being perfect

Enjoy your quilt and enjoy the process.  The pleasure you take will
shine through your stitches.
Smile.

Love and hugs,
Nel

wholeheartedly send positive energy your way.
