Cut & Sew

Sometimes it's not as hard as you thought it would be
before you start.
Sometimes it's not as easy as think.
Most of the time, you'll never know until you start.

UN do and RE do takes so much out of you
that it almost makes you stop...but you can't...gotta keep going.

You have to get back to it and do it can only
get better with mistakes comes experience.
And that's ok.

Keep it moving

As with anything worth doing, it ain't gonna be easy.  It's gonna take time and energy, all of which you get back once you achieve your goal.  Whether big or small, all projects can get frustrating, annoying and just plain maddening.  But you either stop and put all your materials away and fb all day. stop for a minute, think about what you should do next, then undo and un-stitch and you redo again...and again...and again if you have to.

The difference between a hobby and a passion.  The difference between something you love and something you like do.  The difference is the learning that you take from the frustrations, the self understanding that you get from doing something over and over again.

In the end, it's all worth it.  Not only do you gain more skills, you get introspect that you wouldn't get otherwise.  It's worth it because it only makes you better.  A better person and a more skilled artist.
