I'm not sure if this sewing thing is good or bad. I start out with beautiful, inspiring material and a great idea. Halfway through Im ready to dump the heap in the trash. I get so frustrated because my stitches aren't perfect. I know practice makes perfect. But I'm not patient. About the time things get hard, I bail. I don't want to spend time practicing, I just want it to be right the first time. But I'll give up and put the machine away for a few months, or years. Then the bug comes back. I don't know where it comes from, but I pull my machine out try again. This time, I want to stick with it. I keep the machine on the kitchen table to remind me to get to work. Try again. Keep practicing.
And I will. I want to create and sell. I want to bring in something for my family. The Proverbs 31 woman did the same thing.
I know all of this can be applied to my Spiritual walk with the Lord. I need to think on this, I think.
Does anyone else have this problem? Any words of encouragement?
