Crochet, Tangles + Frogs

I’m afraid I won’t be able to figure it out. That I won’t “get it” you know?

ArtJournalTangle1So this is a picture I’ve shared before. I’m sharing it again because it makes me happy. I haven’t tangled in a while…well I have but I haven’t scanned it. I keep seeing patterns I want to try so I will get back to it.

Right now crocheting a blanket is top on my list. I’ve almost completed all the squares. Next I have to tackle the border. Never done that, you see. I have another group of squares that I could join to make a nice size lap blanket.

I haven’t.

Know why?

Fear.

I’m afraid not that I’ll screw it up. It’s crochet. I can rip-it with the best of the froggers.

Like some of the people I work with who are afraid to seek joy because they think they will fail at it…that they are incapable of learning how to seek joy.

So, because I challenge them and you to seek joy every day, I’m going to challenge myself to learn how to do this border. I know I can. I WILL that I can.

So there.

Your journal prompt for the day is, “What do I need to just do despite my fears of inadequacy?”

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.

Thanks for following and liking me!

  1. I have started to work with the WIldwood tarot which I did find somewhat scary. I can relate to the crochet thing. I have a heap of squares waiting for there borders. At least I have my neck (still hurting) as excuse 😀
