Trying New Things…

In the last year or so I have really been inspired to unleash my creativity. It started with my photography, but I have felt compelled and inspired by others to try other things as well.

Embroidery was one thing I wanted to try, and I have a friend who dabbles in it. I asked her to show me a few basics to get started and now I am making this Luna Moth.

I also found inspiration in words written by resurrection fern:

you don’t have to be a painter to paint

This resonated with me, because I always felt like something was holding me back from trying new things. I worry too much about being good at it, when all that really matters is the process of learning and enjoying it.


One thought on “Trying New Things…

  1. Wow, I love moths and butterflies so much and your already looks amazing. I was also smiling at how the little stitches you have made so far look like the lines in knotted wood. Nature resonates so wonderfully with its surroundings doesn't it.
