The girl behind the mask

Thank you all for such encouraging comments. I have spent the last week in a battle with myself. When I started working on "The girl behind the mask" I thought that it would be a challenge, and it really is and has been a big one. I finally mailed the entry form to the festival of Quilts competition last night after much encouragement and deliberation with Dave and the children (Gina and Susan too, at our last get together). I will continue my work on it sharing as I go along the humps and bumps which I encounter. I have been working on the background and still have quite a lot to do. I now have to deal with each development one step at a time. As I work on this piece it is almost, as the name suggests, a focus on myself, my fears and insecurities, my desire to hide away instead of confronting any obstacles that come my way. I still struggle at 47 to be a strong woman who might take a chance, instead of the vulnerable girl afraid to fail. The important thing is doing your best, It is about self belief.

Yes, congratuations on mailing that form! I know exactly how you feel because I entered too and it was a big decision to make. Not because I'm interested in winning or anything like that, but it's a big commitment to say you are going to make a piece of work and then have to deliver. It will be a really good experience and good to get feedback on the work too. Most of all I really hope you enjoy the process, it's just a bit of fun at the end of the day!

ps. I was 47 when I sent the form off, 48 now! :o)
