To really appreciate the happiness of success I think you have to go through the frustration of failure once in a while. Last night I started on the final sample for chapter seven, and oh dear what a disaster. Nothing was going right for me last night.
I had thread snaps galore, my machine was doing random jumps here there and everywhere, something was just not working and I couldn't figure out what it was. I persisted for 2 hours - yes you read that right! - and all I ended up with was this awful mess.
It's so tempting to start all over again, but I won't that's not what this course is about. Documenting the things that go wrong is as important as the ones that go right.
Still I'm telling myself today is another day and there is still lots more stitching to be done until this one is finished so maybe things will improve. :)
