Out, self-doubt!

Have made a start on May Britt's Stitchers' Angel Sewing Bag. I've decided on redwork, using DMC variegated floss #115. Can't find red flower buttons though, so will have to improvise!Happy Friday night! I'm off to enjoy some 'improvisation tonic' aka a glass of champagne - who knows what my flowers will end up like!
I googled 'improvise' to see if I could find a clever quote & came up with this from Sylvia Plath, American poet & novelist:
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
So here I am, writing about not very much, improvising just a little, & fighting the self-doubt! Wishing you a very creative weekend, Bloom.


  1. Your flowers will be fantastic after your 'improvisation tonic' and i know as I am partaking right now and therefore can imagine them!!
    Have a great weekend and enjoy the stitching...

  2. I completely agree with Sylvia Plath.Have a good week-end!

  3. Looks great with the varigated thread. Why not stitch the flowers as buttonhole wheels.

  4. Self doubt is a killer for sure - I am writing this after one improvisation tonic myself (note to self : check spelling)

  5. Oh...a nice...Well Bloom, I just love Sylvia's quote...and I have just finished May Britt's stitchery and tomorrow I am going to have a bash at the self doubt...I also improvised with the button flowers but the imagination well maybe it was left on the shelf...xx

  6. Please don´t doubt your self, let the creativity grow, just improvise :)

  7. Love the peek at your stitchery. Fantastic idea to use variegated floss.

    Great quote! So very true...

  8. Love the stitchery! Variegated floss is a a good idea to go along with the fabrics I have for the projects.I also want to make May Britt's bag, it so cute!
    The quote you found is a very good one, just have to write it down!

  9. did you find flowers buttons? I bet what ever you use will look great.

  10. What a sweet little angetl! Hope the tonic was nice!!!
