Thoughts While Pinning
I was writing imaginary blog posts in my head while basting this quilt this afternoon. Nothing like a little mindless pinning to get the thoughts whirling. I often find myself thinking in the form of writing, and I can write some quite interesting, informative, well-thought out and even witty stuff in my head... but you'll just have to take my word for it, cause it rarely gets any farther than that.
I've struggled with this alot, and often wonder how other bloggers get past this little problem. I'd like to be my real self here and just write as thought no one else will read these words. But the fact is, someone will read them! And I tend to get myself all tied up in a little wad about how weird my words will sound, or that I'm not explaining myself clearly, so people will take it all wrong. (Ok, I think I've written about this before:)
I'm honestly not sure how to get past this little problem... anyone have some advice for me? Meanwhile, all the interesting dialogue I was having with myself while basting has disappeared. I can't even remember what I was thinking about! Oh well, I guess it wasn't that important.
I'm hoping to get this baby quilted soon and finish up a few more quilts as well. My Etsy shop has been sadly neglected the last while. The fabrics in this quilt were an impulse buy. I saw them as a new arrival at Hawthorne Threads (Griffith Park by Alexander Henry) I fell in love with the fun shapes and unusual color combo. I have a healthy respect for the speed at which Hawthorne Threads sells out of popular fabric lines, and so I quickly loaded up on enough to make a little quilt. I'm especially fond of that pink hilly print in the top photo. I'll have some "finished" photos soon!
