Have you ever in situation that when you see around everybody looks are so perfect , lucky in life but you ?. Everyone looks so divine. They have many things in life, they are become a great author, have their own careers, and looks so brights !! I feel that way sometime (ok, alot) and those feeling made me 'sad '. Not until I sat with an old lady, friend of mine a couple days ago - we had a cup coffee , chit chat for almost 2 hours . We felt comfort with each other, and share our stories together. The story of her's life made me almost cry - I feel that is too much for her to 'carry' herself. But I tell you, she is the strong woman I ever met. I'm not gonna tell you, what kind of situation she has. But the point is : you can't always look up , you need to look down too, to see people who doesn't have a perfect life and those will make you feel like a lucky person in the world who doesn't need to go through that situation. That is for sure, comforting me that I can't be perfect because I am what I am - be myself and feel blessing with things on my hand right now, I don't need to see how beautiful people grass is, I just need to trim my own grass and make them as beautiful as people yards :D
Anyway, what on the earth this pictures has thing to do with story above ? I tell you this one, may be I'm a late bloomer ; I just start sewing, quilting, baking when my age is more than 40yo!! LOL - and this is my first time quilting ever, well, I made several projects before but typical of me cut..sew and set aside, never intend to finished it up. But this project really make me happy ; and if you see carefully, the sewing line is not straight ; kind of mess up little bit - but after the project finish, the picnic blanket is look 'perfect' to me LOL - oh well, mommy try to make an adjustment ^__^
Now you will see the related between story above and my quilting project !! You don't have to see one by one and will find un-perfect thing, just need to see overall finish product .. so comfortable picnic blanket and ... looks good, *eeerrr.. stop talking now !*
