Q words are great. Question, quest, quandary, quaff, quell, queasy...and so on! One of my favorite Q words is quagmire....which by definition is: a situation from which extrication is very difficult. Which was how I was feeling recently when I started a new beading project. I started out with a right angle weave with bugles and tiny Czech fire polish beads. And as I found myself going around and around, I wasn't really sure what I would do next. I had a nice base, and I had a plan to build upon it like I've done with the layered peyote bracelets. Only, I didn't have a plan. So I thought I would just toss this idea aside and it would end up like numerous other projects I started and didn't finish....or started and tore apart (like this little number from early last year):
But since I've been beating my self up lately about not completing projects, I found myself in a beading quagmire. I'd gotten myself into this situation, and invested a bit of time, but I was finding extricating myself out of the situation (finishing) a bit difficult.
But no one could quell my quest to finish. I played around with this for days. And happily ended up with this:
And that's what I call a quality quagmire.
