Close up

Sewing the big looping petals has been quite therapeutic for me this week.
I'm surprised at how even they have turned out.  

I'm not sure if I've mentioned before that I get nervous alot, when I'm about to do the free motion sewing. I always worry that its not going to turn out, that I won't be able to do it. Being confident in myself is something that I really really need to work on. I still cannot get my mother's voice out of my head - that what I'm making is basically a waste of time and do I really think that anyone is going to buy that?!?!!
It seems to be ingrained and I'm not quite sure how to get rid of it.

So I'm listening to my own advice this week ::
just keep going and have a go!!xx

oh those words of your mother make me so sad! You make such beautiful things and I've received SO many compliments wearing your beautiful pieces. I'm always amazed at your beautiful stitching, do you any scrap any pieces? Keep up the amazing work, I'm pretty sure not many people think like your mother!
