lessons

I've been working on a lap quilt for a friend's "special" birthday. Sewing can be an opportunity to stretch and learn, although occasionally the stretch is over the yawning abyss of insanity. This project came with several lessons.
Lesson 1- Don't cut expensive fabric up willy nilly. Do the math.
Lesson 2- Letting a pattern "emerge" may be all well and good, but when gripped by a time crunch, have a plan.
Lesson 3- Don't hesitate to set the project aside to get your bearings, sleep, breathe into a bag.........
Lesson 4- Push through and finish. You must show your Panic Attack who's boss.
