Insecurity and a need for reassurance are traits I judge myself harshly for. Of course, they are a normal. They do tend to rear up whenever I am in the thick of creating a piece, even when that piece is coming together nicely. Creating Turbulence is going slower than I estimated. This really isn’t a surprise. I ALWAYS underestimate the time it will take me to make a piece. What is clear, is I am making progress as you can see from the following photos.
Despite what I said in the opening paragraph, I really do enjoy the process of making a quilt like this. I struggle far more with conflicting responsibilities that keep me out of the studio, than I do with studio time. It is in my studio, immersed in the process when I feel most centered. So why feel a need to rush the process. Instead I will embrace the slow, steady pace.
