I Was Starting To Think It Wouldn't Happen

Have you ever had a great idea, gathered the supplies needed and then sat down to begin, but once ready it just didn't feel right?  I mean, you haven't even started yet, but you know this isn't going to be what you want it to be.

This happened to me months and months ago.  So I walked away from it.  When I pulled it all back out and changed up a few ideas, it still didn't feel right.
I seriously don't even know how many times I went down this path with this one project.


And now the idea is not even remotely like the original.  But I do think it's going to be great now.

Sometimes all it takes is patience.

Yes, I get this - sometimes you just have to wait until the idea is right. I know if I wait long enough my brain will percolate away and eventually it will come together and come to me.
Can't wait to see it!

Oh, yes, I really know that feeling and situation!
Sometimes it just turn out differently, but often that is actually just okay...
I am curious to find out, what your project is and how it will turn out.

Happens to me all the time and it's very frustrating. Considering that you managed to take a picture of embroidery floss and make it look scrumptious, I can't even imagine what the art will actually look like!!

Oh yes, Alisa! Been there! LOL! Dozens, maybe hundreds of times!

The colors of your threads are beautiful!

Hugs, Diane
