Sometime Done is better than Perfect unless you are a baby chipmunk. Then you are already perfect.

I like to create a label for every quilt I make. I expect my quilts to outlive me and I suppose, this is my way of grasping at immortality.

I made this label for my winter quilt.
Quilt Label

It was harder than I expected. I found the pattern hard to follow and it’s been a while since I’ve done any cross stitch and even longer since I’ve worked on linen. And, to top things off, I think I need stronger reading glasses.

I made more than a few mistakes and ripped it apart more than once. I finally decided that no one but me would see the mistakes and that sometimes done is better than perfect.

I choose a chipmunk for my label because the night we took possession of our home, we inadvertently left the front door open. A chipmunk came to check out her new neighbours. After an hour or so we finally shooed her safely out the front door. A few months later she started a family in a pile of wood left next to our house. The cuteness was almost overwhelming.

Remembering these baby chipmunks and their mother reminds me that, despite all the snow, spring is on its way.

Have a great day!

  1. This is one of the best reminders ever – to find joy and embrace ourselves even with a few inperfections! Thanks for sharing this with us on Throwback Thursday, and we’ll be sure to pin it to our Throwback Thursday Board! 🙂 And in honor of the sentiment, I’m not going to correct that mistake in my spelling! 🙂
