Shoo fly, don't bother me! Every one knows the saying, but I experienced it first hand.
I went into Mystery Weekend wanting to use up my 30's reproduction fabric. And we all know that using up fabric you already have isn't nearly as exciting as buying new fabric.
So once I started sewing, I had a hard time being excited about the quilt. Steve liked everything I was doing. When I finished the quilt, he thought it was cute and old timey.
I still wasn't that excited about it. I took it to the quilt shop, and everyone thought it was great, but I still wasn't that excited.
It did get me thinking though. Sometimes it is hard to see the beauty in your own work. You come to it with all your expectations and the quilts don't always fit those expectations.
I've had a week separation from the quilt now, which helps to bring a new perspective to the quilt. Looking at the picture now, it looks like a quilt my grandmother would have made for me.
I am starting to see the charm of the quilt now.
