Sweetness of Nature
Because I have never been about perfection. So I got slapped on the wrist and taught a lesson. When I was half way done I was checking it out and found three very serious mistakes. Mistakes that I didn't have the fabric to fix.
At first I was devastated. And then I got A WORD.
My friend will laugh at that because she is ALWAYS getting A WORD. And God uses her to share those words with us. And I always want to run away screaming when she looks at me and says: Autumn, God gave me A WORD for you. Oh. No. Its always straight to the heart of a matter in your life and most of the time she doesn't know where that arrow lands, she just knows she's passing on a message.
Its always right on.
So, this time I got A WORD. And that word told me that I knew better. All my other quilts I was pouring prayer and memories and love into......while this one I was trying to be perfect. I was sweating it.
So I didn't rip out those errors. I kept them. Not only to remind myself...but to share with my friend...who will always have a much less than perfect quilt from a friend that loves her with all her heart.
I watched a video on a blog written by a friend in England. Her's are much prettier than mine...but I can claim to be a beginner. Hah.
