It starts with this ....
That saying is me right now!
I'm sure I interpreted it differently than what some others will, but this is how it relates to me.
For more than a year I have been an active part of a campaign to save our county ran nursing facility (you can see me here towards the bottom of the page at one of our many rallys - as of today the photo is still there. ) That being said when I am home I am exhausted .... and for the most part worried and unhappy.
I haven't tatted more than a few minutes here or there in months. And now I find myself intimidated by it. I look at my patterns and HDTs and wonder if it is worth even starting something?
I got some new HDT from Jess at Tatilicious hoping it would jump start my creativity again. (I know I said I wouldn't get more until I'd used up some of what I had, but I was desperate - so I won't beat myself up over it *smile*) But even that didn't help.
Somehow I must lose the fear of "what if I spend my limited time tatting and it ends up being a waste".
You know .... what if it ends up being the wrong pattern and I don't enjoy it so it doesn't get completed, or I use the wrong color for the pattern, or the thread size is wrong for the pattern, or ... well you get it.
I must lose the fear of being wrong in order to become creative again.
I greatly enjoy being creative, it is part of what makes me ME :-)
Happy Creating - or whatever it is that you do that makes you YOU.
