One thing that I know about myself is that I don't have a lot of patience. It is a virtue that I constantly work to develop. Before I spent so many years in the Corporate world, I think I used to be more patient than I am now. I used to write letters and now I get impatient with the slow pace and want to type everything.
I spent three days last week learning long-arm quilting techniques. My key take-away is that I need to develop more patience.
I think my long-arm quilter (Ethel) is so fast that I should be able to quilt in no time. What I realized last week is that I have a lot of practice in front of me before I am proficient. The practice designs are pretty good for two days on the machine, but I want to be able to do it now!
