The wonderful thing about creativity is that there is something out there for everyone! None of us is good at everything all the time, and that is certainly true for me. There are two things which I only touch under great pressure.
Knitting makes me tense beyond measure. I will share an anecdote with you on another day when I have photographs to back it up, but for choice I will avoid it at all costs. When I do force myself to knit the fabric is even and to correct tension – but…… the pain and suffering I go through to get there is not worth enduring.
There is another skill that causes me similar frustrations.
This ring was made for my by my very good friend Margaret. Sadly I don’t see her at all often any more as she has moved far away, but if you asked her about my efforts at beading she would probably laugh derisively! She has the patience of Job – and tried on many occasions to induct me into the pleasures of the craft. No matter how hard I tried I ended up with a disaster.
Beads? Well, I might add the odd one or two to stitching (that’s my intention today, by the way) but as for anything else ………!!
How about you? Do you like beading? Is there something you just can’t master? Is there something you really dislike doing?
Isn’t it great that we are all so different!
