i cannot be
the only one who sometimes
does not start for fear of it not coming out well.
i’m not much of a ‘practicer’, more of the ‘want to be good’ type
and it can temporarily paralize me.
that sort of explains
why i have two big books,
multiple colors of floss, and even an interesting blank bag,
but have not yet stitched a single stitch…
then jordan started her sewing site
and the accompanying blog and newsletter.
i find her point of view refreshing and down to earth.
her photo tutorials are so clear,
she makes me want to just dive in.
but, i still didn’t know quite what to attempt to stitch
until i read this little bit of her poetry:
yes, that’s exactly right.
the rest will come together once i start.
i’m quite sure of that now.
tomorrow’s goal: pick a color & thread the needle.
i can so do this.
Yes, absolutely exactly.
I can’t wait to see the beauty you create with the seed of inspiration I gave you 🙂
I am a lot like that too. 🙂 I have unfinished projects because I am worried about how they are going. I had my floss case out the other day to make a face on a small baby toy, and then again to stitch elastic into a hat. Now I want to run down to my room and see what’s in the cross stitch and embroidery cupboard!!!! But first, finish nock!
