Journeys, collections and home truths

So I was sat on a train (bear with me, I know I started my last blog post the same with me on a train, well… Lots happens on trains) racking my brain for a new theme for a collection.

I’d just finished at the crochet sanctuary and had had an amazing pop up shop which had wiped out half my stock. I knew I needed to get dyeing ASAP! I just couldn’t commit to a theme or idea.

The problem was I was feeling held back by something… (oh gosh here we go again) acceptance.

It’s (this feeling) a royal pain in the butt actually. I had an idea you see for a collection of yarn based on something that had been present in my life for 22 years. I mean it’s epic. But of course it means letting people see just how much of a happy loser nerd I am.

I have a horrible little voice in my head that is constantly doubting everything I do. Telling me I’m not good enough and that my ideas are pants. That no one will buy what I have to offer and to go mainstream ideas instead of be true to myself, my ideas and my interests.

But that voice isn’t winning. It won’t hold me back because I can’t fake anything (my emotions are quite literally all over my face. I can never play poker as I’d 100% lose) SO…

Hi, my name is Jess, I’m 31 years old, I am married, I have three children and… I am still obsessed with the Harry Potter series.

Gah! I said it. Are you still here… 😳 Oh your a HP nerd too?! Well then do I have a yarn collection… Or 7… for you planned or what?!

So I have a question for you… Are you ready to go on a yarn journey with me?

Xxx Jess
