I have terrible fine motor coordination and "tiny" projects like crafts, writing, and quilting I can't seem to wrap my fingers around them... I've done them but they would not past the "visual perfection" test.
I try not to make a big deal out of it- if I was ever called on to make a quilt I could- it just wouldn't look as nice as a lot of you great quilters out there.
With that said- I love making and keeping a lovely home. The cleaning, tidying, arranging, beautifying routine of it all.
I believe that you can take the simplest of things and with just a little cleaning, painting and fun... magic happens.....there is magic in the mundane.
I realized early on in my life that a great deal of my time was going to be spent "homemaking" So I thought I might as well figure out how to get the most fun and satisfaction out of it.
If I didn't know how to do something I went to the library and checked out books about the subject, and read & practiced, read and practiced. But I have to say- it was the older ladies in our ward, and friends that I learned the most from. I'm thankful for friends that know way more than I. I've learned so much from them... and I'm thankful for the sweet older ladies that mentored me and lovingly took me under their wing.
I realize that I'm now one of those older ladies in the ward.....and it made me realized that I'm not playing my part very well.
Everyone needs a loving friend to learn from- some guidance & loving wisdom from someone who has been there done that....
I know I still do.
