Okay so I'm not using average as a derogatory term regarding ones personal life,
I'm using it as in 'the mean'.
So yesterday I spent the day
avoiding workmen with my parents,
with the intent of enrolling my Mum into the world of paper piecing.
(she was already a willing victim)
As the hours past whilst we tried to make her a perfect hexagon template,
I began to notice how the apple didn't fall far from the tree.
Basically it turns out we both 'wing it'.
I explained to her that my reason for English paper piecing is that
I'm a terribly inaccurate cutter of fabrics,
and that with epp it doesn't matter
which is why I do it.
So my Mum chimes in
'that it's better to be all over average than to be perfect just once'
If you make one part perfect, everything after that has to be just as perfect.
I suppose you could use this rule in life...
it works when I'm machine piecing,
and I am by no means perfect.
Happy weekend all!!
