A Few Words About Creativity, Quilting, and Judgement

 Hello my quilting peeps!

A few weeks ago Eric and I went on a little road trip to a few of my quilt shop mentors. It was a substitution for the cancelled Janome Institute, where we dealers were going to see the new machines. Alas, that's been delayed. So we decided to make the most of it and still do a business trip of another kind.

While we were in Marysville, TN visiting the wonderful Terri from Mountain Creek Quilters, we did a quick video. She is a great encourager (and quilter!) and so we decided to have a chat about creativity, quilting, and judgement. I see this in a lot of my students...mostly of the self condemnation kind! It's part of my life mission to help people use their machines with more confidence for greater creativity, so it seemed like a great topic.


I hope you found this video encouraging!

I don't know about you, but it seems as if kindness, good manners, and compassion are in short supply these days. What's the saying? Be the change you want to see in the world?  We must be kind and compassionate to ourselves and then pour out the overflow of kindness and compassion on others. Oh, and I totally have yet to learn how to be kind to myself, so please forgive my hypocrisy! I am working on it.

Be well and I'll see you in the next video.





PS  I've been doing more YouTube videos these days on my AmyQuilts YouTube channel. Check them out!

  3. It is encouraging to me that you speak of showing self compassion as a way of developing the compassion we should feel for others. I feel that more of us understand the maxim “Treat others as you wish to be treated” but we don’t really understand “Love your neighbor as you love yourself”. Clearly the latter requires self love before any other love can be given to any extent. From time to time I hear my own thoughts and realize I would never talk to another person in such a negative way.

  6. The general feeling is that video games do not provide any benefits to the player and especially so in the case of children. This article makes an attempt to list some of the benefits that gamers enjoy whether they are toddlers or grandparents. https://www.buyyoutubesubscribers.in/
