"Why is all my yarn purple?" I asked myself. And then the negative self-talk spiraled out of control and the next thing I knew I wasn't just NOT and artist and NOT creative, but I was a poor excuse for a human being. (In desperate need of some nurturing, which began with a walk in the woods, also known as taking a giant step back from the abyss of negativity.)
Thank god for tools and a little self awareness and some perspective. When I came back to it later, I found it wasn't so bad if I picked out some of the bits of ribbon. I designated Tuesday as Ugly Yarn Day and navajo plied a bobbin of questionably-dyed merino that had been sitting around for, well, months, actually. Yep...still ugly. But not purple. And perfect for trials of some patterns I'm working on.

May we all push through to the other side, close the gap and NEVER QUIT!
