Tell us about the object of your dejection — something you made, a masterpiece unfinished, or some sort of project that failed to meet your expectations. What did you learn from the experience? How would you do things differently next time?
Maybe I’ll have time to jot off a quick one before I leave for work.
I’m a crafter–knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting, embroidery, cross stitch. I’ve made tons of things over the years. Some have turned out quite well, thank you 🙂 Others have been colossal flops.
The one I feel the worst about, though, is the quilt I started over ten years ago for my daughter-in-law, just before I started working as a therapist. I got busy, and the quilt is still sitting in a drawer in my sewing area. The top is almost completely finished, but it needs more work; also, needs to be layered, quilted, and bound.
I really enjoy quilting, but things just got in the way. My son’s family needed to stay with us a couple of different times, and my sewing area became a bedroom. Delay, delay. Excuses, excuses.
So that’s it. I’m sure it’ll be finished someday. I think.
