I've been working on my procrastination list. Yesterday I crossed off an item, and that felt good. I have 3 projects that are vying for attention and it's hard. Sometimes you just have to do it and not worry about perfection. A friend of mine and I were talking about how for some things in life getting it done at a B level is much better than not doing it at an A+ level.
I bought the red striped ticking when I was on vacation at an antiques show. It was spendy for me. I've had a hard time cutting it, really. But I remind myself that it will not be fully what I want it to be until I "cut the cloth" and start sewing it into the pillow cover I want. It's really pretty and isn't being presented in a great way just laying on a shelf in my sewing room.
