I DID IT!!!!!!! I really did! I officially declare myself an FMQer. For real! Oh I'm SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS!!!!! My cross-hatch handcuffs are gone forever.
Let me show you my flowers.
Here are some of my hits,
and my personal favorite,
And some misses, of course. Must show the misses ...
How cruel is it that the high contrast fabrics make a slightly bad flower looks colossally hideous? Chalk it up to Murphy's Law, I guess!
(Oh, and I don't even want to KNOW what you gutter-minded peeps from yesterday see in this picture below ... ) tee hee
But by the end there were hardly any misses at all! Oh, except for this ... grrr ...
Never mind. Nothing is going to spoil my mood.
I think all that practice with Stones really helped me improve my control. Although I think Stones is actually harder than Flowers! Go figure. :)
I sure have come a long way from this back in March (geez, five months ago!). I remember how embarrassed I was to show you this ...
And how hilarious I thought this was in June ...
When I remember all the fear, practicing, trials & errors and a few (ok, maybe several) bad words that went into reaching my goal of learning FMQing, I'm kinda sorta proud of myself. Oh, who am I kidding. False modesty can be so unattractive. I'M AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahaha!
I'm starting to wonder why I took a few decades to get here. But I made it! And it feels SOOOOOO GOOOOOOOD!!
I'm so hap, hap, happy!!! I just want to hug everyone. So if you're reading this, consider yourself virtually hugged! :)
Seriously. I think forcing myself to do this in front of an "audience" made all the difference. I shamed myself into not quitting - which I'm SURE I would have done ... again ... if I hadn't commited to this publicly.
Yay me! :)
