Love this quote

“Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, sauté it, whatever. MAKE.”
Joss Whedon
Since I started doing my quote of the day  I have never found one that speaks to me more than this one. The key word is make. It's what I must do.
 I was thinking as I was working this morning. We won't go into the dangers of my mind in think mode. I think that has been covered already.  Since I am working on a fairly long project, what I was thinking of  was making progress. To me crochet is a lot like walking. You make no progress unless you put one foot/stitch in front of the one just completed, But if you do that consistently than you will be surprised how far you can go.
I have been making good progress on this project. Only a day or so more and I will have it done. Always makes me feel good when I have kept at something and it takes shape and form faster than I plan. Makes me feel even better when the shape and form meets or exceeds my expectations. That makes me feel so good on so many levels.

  1. I feel the same way. I am working on the butterfly shawl and I LOVE seeing it emerge on stitch at a time. I thought this project might overwhelm me, boy was I wrong. I am enjoying each and every stitch and the entire process of the piece!
