Alyssa tells us “Try new techniques and crafts without judgement. If you push off the need to get something perfect the first time, you’ll be more daring, learn more, and have more fun. That new craft may become your passion. Or it may not. And that’s OK.” I also have a free embroidery pattern at http://penguinandfish.com if they want to give embroidery a try before starting the block‘
