I am really good at keeping my studio clean, and at how well I keep organized when piecing blocks and tops.

For my art quilts, I am good at having an idea but waiting until the whole thing: design, colour, fabrics, technique, finish, come together before I begin it.
And, I am good at recognizing when my idea is not going to work out the way I wanted and letting it go so I don't get stressed out about it.

HHmmpphhh.... I'm not good at much! But I do enjoy trying. I guess I'm good at trying to ask the right question and pay attention and listen. I know a lot of things, but do not consider myself as good at any of them. Modesty? Perhaps. But a realization there are those of you out there who know far more than me. And that is what keeps me coming back into this forum and reading on a semi-regular basis. I'll be best at thanking all of your for your patience and knowledge!!!

I’ve gotten to pretty good at choosing fabrics. At first, it gave me high anxiety to select the fabrics for a new quilt. If the owner of my favorite LQS wasn’t in when I went there to shop, I just turned around a walked out. I didn’t trust me or anyone else to select what I needed. Now, I walk in with confidence and walk out with fabric. Unfortunately, I haven’t been to a quilt shop since this pandemic started. I’ve been using up my stash. But, I received my first vaccination last week and so in about 6 weeks I’ll run on down to a quilt shop. I just wish my favorite LQS hadn’t closed down a couple of years ago.

Well I am good at quilting and sewing, decorative painting and I love to cook. I also was a darn good nurse.

I am good at amassing beautiful fabrics and, on occasion, making lovely quilts from them. When I'm not quilting, I'm good at writing for publication and meeting my deadlines.

I am confident about my designs, color/pattern choices and visual ideas. I am good at finding the right fabrics in thrift stores. And I'm not afraid to lurk into the belly of my machine with a screwdriver in hand.

I am a jack of all trades and a master of none. I try to do the best I can but I will never be perfect.
