Fabric Embellishing: Taking the Risk to Blossom

My partner in crime writing is part of a fabulous new book on embellishing from Landauer (our Thread Basics publisher) Fabric Embellishing: The Basics & Beyond. It just went up on Amazon:http://www.amazon.com/Fabric-Embellishing-Techniques-Step-step/dp/0981804039/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1249088038&sr=1-1

What a rush to see your work come to life in print, or paint or fabric… Don’t you just need to gaze at it when you are done? Sure there will always be the worries of will it sell, will viewers understand it, will it be liked, is it good enough? But savour the moments of completion, debut and release! The work represents that risk that you took to put it out there to blossom and thrive by sharing it with the world! No matter what ‘better ideas’ that you think you have, celebrate those that have happened and that you have let go into the wide world.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Anais Nin

Creativity can be described as letting go of certainties.
