Do you remember your first skirt that you ever sewed? Were the seams straight? The first scarf that you knitted (we all started with the scarf)…. do you still have it? Your first loaf of bread… did it rise?
I recently was going through my stash of knitted and crocheted swatches and found my first knitted swatch. Now, I am going to be completely honest… it looks real bad. But instead of hiding it, I am displaying it for all to see.
Here are my first batches of handmade soap. They don’t look like the beautiful soaps that I see in the various online marketplaces, but my soap gets sudsy when I use it. I’ll take the mini successes.
Let’s face it … all of our crafty inventions are not award wining masterpieces. Just like many other areas in life, we learn from our mistakes and diligently work to improve.
