I'm not very good at trying new things in most areas of life, honestly that's an understatement, I suck at the unfamiliar. When it comes to crafting I've got no problem going out on a limb and failing. I'm not sure if this attempt at applique is good or bad quite yet but it's definitely not perfect. By the end of my days off I'd love if the top was finished so I'll be pushing on no matter how imperfect. That's part of what I love about crafting it allows for the imperfect.
