Process Pledge or Rosie on Mutant Quilting

The Process PledgeThe response to Rosie's  post on mutant quilting has been really cool. She says "it seems I'm not alone in my interests and concerns.

I have made a process pledge.  The goal of the process pledge is to create a new sensibility in quilting blogs where we don’t just show finishes or occasionally confess about our moments of indecision, but chat openly and often about our works in progress, our inspirations, and our moments of decision. I know that many of us are already posting about our thinking on quilts and the processes involved from start to finish, let's do more!  And let's post about quilts as we work on them.  I want to see more half-done quilts, not just the finished thing with a journal entry about the process."

I started today.  Am going to post photos of the process as I go along and maybe the pattern I am using. Stay tuned....I have my camera in the sewing room right now.
That said....here is the pledge:

So, without further ado.  Here's the process pledge. Take it, shake it, make it yours.

I, ________________, pledge to talk more about my processes, even when I can’t quite put them in the in words or be sure I’m being totally clear.   I’m going to put my thinking and my gut feelings out there.
