I intentionally don’t make resolutions for the new year, because I don’t want to feel that gut shot zing of failure when I inevitably give up on whatever AMAZING THING I was going to accomplish….Yet somehow, I began 2022 with the intention of starting not one but two yearlong embroidery projects?
While there were some choice moments scattered throughout this leg of the journey, overall I am going to issue 3 stars out of a possible 10, and I will not be leaving a tip for the driver.
I think trying something new, discovering that it isn’t what you thought or hoped it would be, and moving on to something else instead is part of the process of artistic and self-discovery.
If you are interested in learning to embroider on a sampler that isn’t boring, you should join me!
My 2022 stitching project is under way!
I knew in my bones that this project would help center me during a tumultuous time, and it did.
If I do not persist, I perish.
