Wayyyy back in May, I received a copy of "Jane Austen Embroidery" by Jennie Batchelor and Alison Larkin. It's super pretty and I was totally enthusiastic about stitching my days away, dreaming of Mr. Darcy (or Colonel Brandon if you please *swoon*) but honestly... life got in the way and I drank too much gin that weekend.
It might look like a mess of lumpy wool to others, but to me that's proof of one small success, of victory, of the baby steps it takes to move forward.
Remember to love all your chunky knots, my friends. Take pride in every milestone no matter how wonky, or wobbly they appear.
I think I'm ready for that bigger project and some Colonel Brandon day dreams.
