Dear Self,

I’m not sure if this is a common experience for people who create things with their hands…I have a visceral sense of potential when I look at a ball of wool or a piece of fabric.

I fall in love with it.

I imagine what it will feel like to make something magic with it.

It is such a temptation to just move onto the next project without finishing the one I’m currently working on!

It makes me happy to know something is waiting for me to make next.

And I do love finishing a project.

It’s the satisfaction of sticking with something through the less exciting bits. The everyday problems solving or daily work that must be done that really makes it special.

And then it’s done.

And I’m ready for the next.

Love

Luke
