    I have several projects but can't seem to get started. :( One is the stain glass wall hanging. I want so much to do a good job that it makes me afraid to begin. :shock: Partly because I am not sure where to begin. The directions that came with the pattern I have read over and over. However, each time I end up just confused. :? I hope I can get more project finished this year and not have to spend most of the year on one. :roll: :lol:

    Possibly if you put the stained glass aside and do something else first the instructions will become clear to you. I find that at times I need to walk away if it appears too difficult. It mulls in my brain and then when I get back to it I feel I can start it.

    Love the red hat quilt :D

    Here's a thought: if the instructions stink, toss them in the trash. just lay it all out on a table and decide for yourself how to do it. you're a smart enough cookie and will do just fine. :P

    i have never done a stained glass quilt, so i may not be on the right track. but, they look to me like something you'd lay out as though you were putting together a jigsaw puzzle. once all the pieces are properly positioned and fastended to the backing, you lay down the bias that simulates the lead, then fasten it using your own favorite method of applique. (i'm so lazy, i'd probably just use my widest satin stitch between the pieces and skip the bias altogether. :lol: )

    whether you put it aside for a while, or start today, the very first thing you need to do is decide that you CAN do it; that you WILL do it; and know that it will turn out beautifully. have some faith in yourself. you'll see. :P
