I decided to procrastinate today: the finishing up of a class I should be working on, cleaning the loft that really needs some attention and generally ignoring the many things needing attention in our house. Instead, I picked up my Steam Punk templates and got to work. Mercy, mercy me. You should know that it was my intention to deny the foul unholy beginnings of my Steam Punk quilt... to quietly delete these photographs and pretend this disastrous block never happened, never mind happened through my own sewing. I planned on denying any knowledge of the existence of this block should it be fished out of some pile of un-sewn blocks in the future (or the garbage). But I really, really hate that. I dislike so much when writers or bloggers or people in general mask faults that in reality make us human. So here it is, in all its glory. My terrible awful. Fabric choices on this one... wrong. Cutting of fabric (my D piece is strangely longer than it should be) wrong. Those curves... ugh...and wrong. I'm stepping away from curves and Steam Punk for a bit my friends, but I know I'll be back. Right now, I'm just going to hang this horrible awful on my inspiration board, call it a day, look at it often, allow it to let me smile and eventually... try again. Until then, happy Monday, I hope you are finding lessons and humor in many imperfect things today!
