The Fear of the Unknown:  My Path to Trying Out (and enjoying!) Embroidery

I haven’t tried embroidery since that time from oh long ago…was I 7 or 8? …sitting in a play room by myself while my sister worked out at the gym.

I’ve been wanting to try it out again, but my fear of being afraid I would fail stopped me.  I didn’t want to invest the money if I failed.

The idea of purchasing a beginners kit popped to mind and I found a reasonably priced kit on Amazon.  It came with all supplies, including a needle threader and cute little scissors.  I used YouTube to help where the picture of stitches required a little more explanation and the result was this little beauty. 

I’m now on my second pattern (the kit comes with three) and can’t wait to try to make small pillows out of them.

I am so glad I found a way to make peace with my fear and so proud of myself for creating something so beautiful.  This is another craft that slows down my brain with each stitch I make.
