Pushing Through The Gap

Just one more, then I must get some work done. As you can see, I have been sitting here rambling around cyberspace. This video is from Ira Glass of NPR. He is talking about the gap between what is created and what is in the mind of someone who is new at their craft. It is so true. How many projects I have abandoned because the work did not meet my standards. Then I revisit it, sometimes years later, and wonder why I never finished. It's because I wanted instant mastery without going through the steps to get there. Hmmm, I think that applies to more in my life than art. That's food for thought, eh?

BTW, The Redhead Creates is where I stumbled upon this.

I've done that with so many things. I have recently gotten back into embroidery. Love, Lynn
