I am an amateur, (from the Latin verb amare: to love). I do this work because I love it so much.
If I thought about whether I was doing things correctly, I wouldn't get nearly as much done.
I believe that if you have an idea, it’s important to begin while you are inspired.
With patience and self-study, I learned how to do the French knot.
I learned how to do mitered corners. I learned how to ensure my triangles had crisp points.
These technical things were conquered when I needed to.
9-patch is a pattern that I find satisfying to make and be comforted by.
