Robot Wall Hanging

In my first month of blogging, just over five years ago, I made a robot wall hanging. I do so wish I'd taken photos of the process, as I was, and still am, very happy with how it turned out. It would have made a great tutorial.

or Why I Don't Always Strive for PERFECTION!

There's no point in doing something unless you do it well. That's how I normally approach things, and at times I can be a bit of a perfectionist. However, to apply that approach to everything in my life, even to all my sewing, would cause me to be a total stress head. Ha, ha.. my family would say stress head describes me to a tee!
