"he offered her the world she said she had her own"
I wish I could remember where I first read this quote. Probably pinterest. I just remember saving it and then searching for its author. Monique Duval. (Because you shouldn't have to google). And then pulling out a notepad to design my first embroidery pattern.
Obviously, it's been through some edits.
It was very scary to stitch. I had no photo of what looks good or what looks crazy. And no idea what colors to use. I just had to guess and then pull out the stitches I didn't like. Which happened a lot.
But I kept going. I wanted to finish. And it's so easy to say, "Well, I guess this isn't my thing," and put down my hoop and try something else.
But, I think I've finally figured out that it would be better to fail spectacularly than to give up. Lucky for me, it wasn't a failure, this time. But I find myself curious to learn which of my next projects will be. And that makes choosing it all the more delightful.
