Confidence doesn’t come naturally ! I’m driving me insane!

So last time I posted I had just passed a City & Guild in Design and Stitch, well I’ve caught the bug and now I’m working my way through the machine embroidery course which I’m really enjoying.

I did have a few weeks break before starting the new course some I did manage to chill and get some other bits and bobs finished.


I’ve tried new techniques …..

And a new way for backgrounds

and this is my ongoing project…

You see the problem I’ve got is not that I’m lacking creativity or ambition, it’s that I’ve no confidence in what I make and I’m pretty much always doubting myself. Don’t get me wrong, I think a little doubt is fine however I think my doubts and confidence is holding me back at the moment.Its my mission to relax, take time and try to get a bloody grip….how I do this is completely beyond me. So if anyone has any tips or suggestions I’d love to hear them.

I’ll keep you updated on my progress 🙂
