Oh, Dear

..is the right word to say when you find out that your favorite dress has a few snags, and you have to dig whatever little embroidery skill that you have to fix it.

I’m starting to loosen up now, and while the preparation of material is still mandatory, I don’t get too obsessed with it anymore. And in fact everything has become kind of enjoyable, save for those times when the students ask questions and I don’t have the answer, lol. Oh well, baby steps, right?
