I have had my next piece of work sitting staring at me for some time now and that little, no, BIG voice in my head kept telling me that there was no way I could complete it, that I would totally wreck it, that it couldn't possibly be a success. Well, I haven't completed it yet, and I might totally wreck it, but one thing is for sure.....if I do nothing, it will never be a success. Or anything else. And I won't have learned a thing.
At the same time, I started reading a little book called "Art and Fear" and it is incredible. It seems to address all those questions I was throwing at myself, and all the doubts as well. And I felt encouraged to just get up and get at it. So I did. And I might not complete it the way I want to....it is way out of my comfort zone. But at least I will know that I can venture into my dis-comfort zone and still breathe!!
So I am off to do a bit more stitching, and a bit more breathing.
I'll be back.....
