Today is the deadline for the Felt Smack Down over at My Life Under the Bus. This is my Easter Brooch. It's the first time I've done a felt project and I haven't embroidered since I was a teenager and I embroidered a sunset across the back of a blue workshirt! Do you remember when that was all the rage 35 years ago?!!!!
I have no grand illusions of winning this contest but entering it has made me feel good about myself and that is my prize! Here's why:
~ I tried something new, and that was one of my goals
~ I finished something I started
~ I'm a perfectionist and this is far from perfect....I entered it anyway
~ It reminded me of how much I enjoy doing needlework apart from the sewing machine
So win or lose, I'm glad I gave it a shot! What have you done recently that you're proud of or made you feel good about yourself?
