Quote o' the Day

“Better done than perfect.” -- Unknown

It’s hard to believe that in all my art and calligraphy circles that I had not heard this quote before. After all, I suspect perfectionistic tendencies plague a lot of us. But I read it in one of my knitting mysteries, and apparently it is well-known in the quilting and needlecraft world.

All I know is, I need to chant it to myself daily! J

  1. You have knitting mysteries?! Pray tell. My mom LOVES mysteries and used to be quite a knitter before her hands hurt.

  2. Oh yes! My favorite knitting mystery series is by author Maggie Sefton, and is set in Colorado. And my other favorite almost-knitting series is set in a needlecraft store in Minnesota, written by Monica Ferris.

    I am also a “The Cat Who” fan, a series by Lilian Jackson Braun, which features 2 Siamese cats and a billionaire crime-solver. :)

    You can go to Amazon and search on “knitting mysteries” or cat or coffeehouse or even chocoholic mysteries! Enjoy!
