One thing that is always important is to keep it real. Remember that line in Lion King's Circle of Life song “There is more to see than can ever be seen, more to do than can ever be done”? These wise words apply to everything in life, including quilting. None of us can do it all. Sometimes when we look at the productivity of everyone in our blog roll or Instagram feed, we forget we are looking at the collective skill of hundreds of quilters. You can’t make everything you see, no way, no how.
