That’s apparently a famous quote on quilting. I think it sums up my own views quite well. I love to cook but I’m not very good. I cant really follow recipes because my brain doesn’t seem to work in the way recipes are written. I’m a piss poor pastry or desert chef and that means my guests endure whatever M&S has to offer that day. After years of feeling inadequate about my lack of culinary skill I now feel liberated. No more worrying about whether or not I should be making my own bread. No more tearing out recipes from magazines promising to one day give them a go and no more anxiety about dinner parties. Cooking is just not what I do.
Quilting or patchwork is my new hobby and I love it with a passion.
