A friend sent me the link for this bag today with the subject “thought of you.” Which is a very big complement. Thank you a million times over. I would love to apprentice in Kapital’s workshop for a day or two.
So today is the big day…the day I have been mulling over in my head for months – perhaps years would be more accurate. It may have even been a lifetime. Today is the day I begin to stitch together the fabric for a the Victorian Parlor chair which has been sitting in my garage, ever so patiently, waiting for me to get my confidence together to tackle the project. I know this will be a long process. I am resigned to the fact that for a stretch of time I will hate my work. I will feel incredibly uncomfortable and I will want to quit. I am also resigned to the fact that I will keep sewing. And eventually, I will reach the point where I look down and smile and know I have created something good. It always works like that. The same predictable evolution. The difficult part is remembering that I have been there before. Remembering that the discomfort is a natural part of my creative process. And after getting a bolster of confidence from the Kapital tote above, I have to say, I am quite excited to begin the journey again.
