    What do you do when you don't like it?

    For the last month or so Iíve been in a slump. My DDís birthday is coming up and I had already made her a quilt for Christmas, so I thought Iíd make a bag for her. Now the questionÖWhat do you do when you spend time making a gift for someone and you REALLY donít like it when you are finished? Itís not that itís hideous looking, but I just donít see DD using it. I will probably make something else but then what do I do with this one? She could use it for a knitting bag? Use it as a lunch bag when you want to feed the entire office (she could even carry eating utensils in the sunglasses case)? Use it to carry the cat to the vet in?

    I'll bet if you took it to Church and set it on a table with a note, [take me] it would be gone in a heartbeat. I like it. It is very pretty.

    I know what you mean. It's hard to give a gift you don't love.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Sometimes I have felt this way after hours of work on a project. But, set it aside for a while. I guarentee the next time you see it you will think WOW this is great, what was I thinking? Because it is great. That purse is one of the most beautiful purses I have ever seen shown on the board.

    But, if you don't want to keep it I know the charity auction would bring big money for the diabetic kids. PM me if you are interested.
