Thoughts for Beginners

No time for much of a post today. My interruptions seem to have interruptions of their own!

But I thought I'd share something from one of my Pinterest boards. We are all beginners at something at just about any given time and I found these words very encouraging to me. Maybe you will like them too.

  1. Thank you so much, Amy - your encouraging words are Just What I Needed. I am learning to FMQ and the results I am getting now ARE discouraging. I do feel if I keep at it I will get better, but it's especially nice to hear this from someone like you. Very much appreciated!

    1. Linda, just keep practicing! I am so glad you commented here, because I now see I need to fix some images, as well as I love hearing that I am encouraging to others. One of the pics said, "Don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle."

  2. Yes, I'm glad you did see that image needed to be fixed!

    I went home last night and tried again. Still have a ways to go, but I was encouraged. I'm learning to listen to my machine and I like the comparison to FMQ and driving a car with a clutch.

    I love your blog - am following now!

  3. Amy, thank you for your words of wisdom. I too am at the same stage as the Linda above and was on the brink of giving up when I found this site. I am so relieved to know that I am not a complete incompetent and will now carry on practising until I can almost satisfy myself that my work is reasonably acceptable! Maybe I shouldn't have jumped in at the deep end with a King Size quilt??! Best wishes Lynda Lorenzo

    1. You wouldn't be the first quilter who began with a hard or big project! Stick with it. Practice makes progress!
