I didn't finish clearing up the mess from the last quilts; somehow I was sidetracked into playing with my batiks, and now there's a new layer of fabric and scraps on top of the old mess.
I don't feel comfortable working with batiks, I love the fabrics close up, but when I step back from the design wall it just looks like mud and grunge. Sigh.... I just feel like no-one has told me the rules for this game yet, so I have no idea what is going wrong.
I know the answer is to keep working with these fabrics, and keep making quilts and learning, but it's a bit discouraging to go back to beginner status. Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to start this when I'm sick, but at least it's taking my mind off my physical symptoms.
