Thoughtful Thursday

 To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
Joseph Chilton Pearce  
Working on this hat, I've been WRONG at least 5 times so far. In fact, I finally just started over because I didn't check my gauge--it would have fit King Kong the way I was going.
On the other hand, fear of making a mistake, of wasting that beautiful fabric, of using up time--that all can get in the way, can't it? Another reason to love swaps--they impose a real deadline so one just needs to make a decision.  What gets in the way of your creativity? Fear? Space? Time?

Interesting post. Right now I'm trying to work up the nerve to cut a huge piece of fabric to begin sewing curtains. The material was expensive and this is my first attempt at curtains. Guess I just need to get over my fear of being wrong and do it!
