"The Mr." Made Me Keep Going :)

Yeah, The Mr. made me keep going with my Valentine projects.  

He usually does not have any idea what project I am working on...what it is for...where I will hang it...which room in the house will I put it.  But on this one, he noticed me :) 

I was hoping to make a heart pillow from a red shirt but did not succeeded.
Tried hot gluing it but it difficult to work around the cloth - FAILED.

Tried gluing but it did adhere enough - FAILED.
After all those attempts and just feeling too disappointed...I sigh! not a small one but a BIG SIGH!

And then this is how the conversation went:

The Mr.: You gotta have a break from whatever you're doing hon.

Me: {with a frown in my face} I FAILED with this project hon, I failed, I failed, I failed....

The Mr.: No, you did not...you just found 10,000 wrong ways of doing it.

Me: Huh!

The Mr.: {he looks up & pointed to the light bulb} That's what Thomas Edison said.

Me: {looking puzzled} Thomas who? 
{the only Thomas I know is my brother in law & of course Thomas of Thomas & Friends, lol}

The Mr.: {laughing} That guy who invented the light bulb said he has not failed, he found 10,000 ways that won't work.

Me: {smile} Really?..thank you hon...

The Mr.: {winked at me}

Me: {blushing}Yeah, he still makes me blush...***blushing***

The Mr. is right, sometimes we have to stop doing what we are doing to evaluate what is not working and learn from it.  

Because I am not a very patient person, I tend to pursue something that I thought I could make but not really....

So The Mr. actually helped me realize that even if I try and fail, it does not mean that I did not learn something...he's the best :)

  1. :) What a nice Mr. you have, Rea! And he is totally right! We keep on learning until finding the way that works! I wonder why the sewing didn't work?

      well that sewing machine has not been used since forever, that is like a play sewing machine - a small one & basic...i actually hemmed some long pants to make it shorter before...i love sewing, maybe sewing don't love me :( saving up money for a good big one and will definitely keep on trying..
