Just a quick picture of my first attempt at patchwork. I do not have the attention to detail for sewing, this is starting to fall apart already! And as you can see the ‘squares’ are rather wonky! It was from a kit I bought in Monmouth after visiting nearby Trellech. Sewing is definitely something I’d like to practice more.
I’ve been trying to remember not to let the perfect be the enemy of the good. I can find it quite easy to give up, or not just start things, if I’m worried the outcome won’t be as good as I want it to be. Which is why I didn’t submit any coursework for the second photography course I did last year, for example. However, as Gretchen Rubin of the Happiness Project has said, “it’s better to get something done imperfectly than to do nothing perfectly.” So I’m trying to focus on just having a go and enjoying the process!
