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.
