so... I wanted to always have something to stitch on. This is similar to keeping a sketchbook. It isn't to make anything. I am not trying to make perfect stitches. If anything, this is my place to be imperfect, to experiment, learn, and push the edge. The most important part is NOT to be judgemental about what I am doing while I do it. After I am finished, then it is important to look at the work and allow myself to reflect and DOCUMENT what worked, what I enjoyed, and what I could have done differently.
