I have a road themed post over at http://www.thecrankyquilter.com/ so I decided to continue the theme here with some fun road signs.
Now, who can resist the bright green "Go" sign? It makes me want to get up and Go!
Ok, now that we're off and running it's probably a good idea to warn those around us. Quilting can be dangerous; the pins, the needles, the scissors, the expletives, the rotary cutter blades. Yes, I think people should be warned of the danger, not only to themselves physically, but also because they just might want to start quilting too!
Before we can really start moving forward we have to let go of the burdens of our past. If you have W.I.P.s (works in progress), that you know you'll never finish, this is the time to let them go. Donate them, toss them, have a bonfire in the backyard....it doesn't matter. The point is to learn how to let go of our learning experiences without guilt. It isn't necessary to complete every project, sometimes they're just there to teach us something. So, toss without guilt and move on down the road.
Remember it's always forward, keep moving forward, don't give up!
Don't even think about making a U-turn. You're on the road Baby, you're getting there!
Yield to no one! Snarky comments? Ignore them! Self doubts? Kick them in the behind!
Now you've run the course, you've won the race, and you're ready to take your quilt on the road. Remember not everyone comes out on top, but you can still win if you bet on "Win, Place, or Show."
Feel the fear, but kick it to the back of the bus!
