Pin interest and look up anything quilting you will get lost there. I now have a pin interest account. Easy way to keep track of all the things I see I want to make.

I think I would get frustrated with all the endless possibilities, quiltingwolf...do you find that to be true at times?

sometimes yes, as I will never have the time to make all the things I see that I want too or better to be able to afford all the fabrics I want to use in said projects lol. It's like sensory overload. Right now I have 3 projects going. I wish I had gotten into this at a younger age. I guess I was around 35. But I didn't really get into it hardcore until around 2000. So I guess I will just plod along and work on things as much as I can. This working full time is really getting in the way lol. I envy people that can retire at 55. The age we all use to be able to retire. I would only have 2 years to go. I'm trying to stock up stuff now though cos when and if I do retire income won't allow for a lot of extras.

I used to wish I'd gotten really into quilting earlier, too.

Honestly, I did NOT possess the patience or conviction in my designs to do it well, then. Inner Critic was crushing.

Now? There's d@m^ed little I cannot do and do it exceptionally well.....including that freakin' Mariner's Compass!

That Inner Critic? Drop kicked to the curb.

Getting Better with Age.

I see so many people who got the plant jobs here at Exx on and D O W and GP right out of HS. They are all retiring at 55. I missed the boat on that and also marrying rich, I'll be reporting to work in a walker..
Oh and I get major sensory overload too. I can't do Pinterest. My brain freezes at the possibilities.

I want to know how to drop the Inner Critic. I have about sixteen of them, so they can tag team me. I would like to get rid of them, but so far they aren't budging.

Barb repeat after me. " I can do what I want, I can quilt,sew embroider how I want it's about the journey not the result. I am supposed to have fun. I've paid my dues. I have earned the right. "

Inner Critics are harpies who wanna keep us down for their own benefit. Coven of Mean Girls. The worse/insecure, etc. we feel, the stronger they are.

I refuse to acquiesce Mean Girls ( or their delightfully indulged and entitled spawn) in Real Life, so why cultivate the destructive inner ugly?

Regarding Pin-Bore.....lots of looking but not a lot of DOING. I think it's just as destructive to creative folks' confidence and competence as Photoshop ads and images are to body image/self esteem Carefully curated and edited photos project unattainable + unrealistic perfectionism. Makes us sad and dissatisfied, creating yearning for that "one thing " that will make all our sewing/quilting/creative ambitions realized.

I call " B*!!$#!%%!"

The folks gleefully displaying wonky monkey and mariachi ( both in my stash) malaligned craptastic quilts and haphazard cook-tastrophes are far more interesting and deserving of my time and attention than Pin- Bore artifice.
