|I know I said I'm a paper and pen planner, but I do use Excel sometimes|
I had a lot of fun (and only minor frustrations - I'm looking at you, candle holders!) putting this block together. I feel like it is an excellent representation of myself as a quilter and a person, and here's why:
1) It has animals on it. I kinda love animals.
2) It has words on it. I adore reading, and have always had a special place in my heart for writing. Since starting my blog last summer, I have found a new love for the written word.
3) The idea came from an existing pattern, but I designed the actual pattern I used. This is a common theme in my work. I have written about creativity before on my blog, and this is an area I struggle with. While I am perfectly capable of coming up with a design of my own, I can hardly call it an original design.
4) It isn't perfect. And neither am I. But I learned a lot while making it, and can only keep improving!
