Needs done, or can wait for the perfection fairy?

April 6th, 2010 at 06:25 pm

I have a largish strip of cloth that needs hemmed, but I do not have a sewing machine. I can hand sew, but I am not very straight.

So what to do? Well a good part of me wants to wait for the 'perfection fairy'. You know the perfect solution that gets things done just right? Yeah I haven't really met her, but I keep hoping she will come along.

The rest of me knows full well the cloth needs done, and my best is going to have to do.

I am often faced with situations where I know I wont do a job well enough, but honestly. It is more important that it get done.

It took me a long time to realize I had a perfectionist hiding inside me, keeping me from starting things because 'they wouldn't be done right'. I credit flylady for pointing her out. Now that I know she is in there, I can firmly tell her to shush up and let me get on with getting things done.

At least sometimes.

    Hemming is easy without a machine. Iron up the hem and then using fusing tape from the fabric store. It irons on, is fast, easy, and reasonably priced. Good luck.

    I never wait for the perfectionfairy. I never even thought about her. I sometimes have a Procrastination Devil by my side when I just feel overwhelmed by starting something- but I have learned to shoo him away after a few days.
