Recently I sold a quilt to someone at work for his new nephew - it was one that I had made on my own, showed it to him and he bought it. But then he and his wife felt that if they went over with a present for the new baby, the 4 year old would feel bad and blah, blah, blah. I don't agree with this approach, but then he specifically asked me if I could make a quilt for the little girl and asked for one with "Disney Princesses" on it. I was VERY tempted to say that "I don't do Disney", and " go buy something at Walmart" and other rather cutting remarks. But he is a good friend, a real solid person and I couldn't let him down. So I went to Walmart...got Disney Princess fabric, and then got some NICE fabric and tried to do that best that I could. Actually it turned out rather pretty and I took a bit of artistic license with the quilting, so I am giving it to him with a clear conscience. Plus hemming it took me straight thru Masterpiece theater, and "Cranford" which was lovely.
My artistic sensitivities are calmed down now, but I am swearing weakly that I won't do this again!
