I am my own worst critic. I second guess everything I do. Like the "Ugly quilt"; I thought it was horrible, quite an "OH NO!" experience. Other people have said it's not too bad. It looks better now, I must admit. I rearranged it so the diamonds are all the same fabrics. I'd like to be an "artist" but I think that a true artist would be sure of themselves in their art.
Everytime I make a bag I think, "This is the ugliest thing I've ever seen!!" Suddenly though, as soon as it's done it looks pretty good. It's a phenominom. I knit things and show them to a couple people before I think they're okay; the same with my knitting, spinning, quilting, painting, writing.
The point of all this is to brag just a little. I got 2 wonderful feedbacks on etsy today for a purple batik bag and the black and white/red split personality bag I made. The lady who bought them was SO happy and had such nice things to say about me and my craftsmanship. I was very pleased; it was nice to hear such great feedback from a non-biased party, LoL!
