I have posted long sermons on being in your sewing journey LOL
to make a long story short we are all on a journey and we all had to start somewhere. we all have alot to learn and noone is concerned with your skills in the swaps but with getting something you made! My biggest thing is I think it is so cool to hold in my hand something my partner was holding in her/his hand not long ago!
I LOVE getting stuff someone made for me!!
We all are our own worst critics and we can pick our own stuff to pieces when it comes to flaws or mistakes.
besides how does anyone know that you didn't mean for it to come out that way? LOL
swaps are for having fun and NOT a quilt contest where the best one wins! We ALL win when we get a sweet pkg in the mail from the swap!!!!
