Fear and Courage

The past couple of days have been spent making final tweaks to my latest crochet pattern, which I hope to have ready and sent out into the world by the first week in April.

I am quite nervous about the whole thing, this being the first pattern I have written to actually sell, a full size garment rather than a small accessory tutorial.

I guess that is why it has been taking me so long to get it finished, the fear of WHAT IF??

What if no one likes it? What if no one buys it? What if people ridicule it? But if I don't even try then I have already failed.

Most artists must have the same fears in regards to sending out a piece of themselves into the world.
And art IS a piece of yourself in whatever form it takes, whether that be painting, writing, pottery, music or crochet.

So in a couple of weeks I will gather my courage, hold my breath and press that publish button, then sit back and hope.

But for better or worse it will be DONE.


  1. OOOohh exciting! Looking forward to seeing it :)


  2. Good luck with it. The same fears put me off trying to sell anything I've created, despite people telling me I could and should sell them.
