I learned to smock about four or five years ago. I took a class and have really enjoyed geometric smocking. I never got into picture smocking because I thought it would be tough, because, let's be honest, you're taking thread and making pictures of things over pleats. It even sounds tough!
Well, I recently got some picture plates from a fellow smocking friend. Those sat around for awhile, still a little intimidating. And then my mom came to visit and delivered me a ready to pleat outfit for my nephew with the requests for ducks. I had a duck plate. It sat and sat and Easter was not getting any further away. Today, I finally stopped stalling and did this
So what about you? Have you put something off out of fear or laziness and discovered it to be easy and worthwhile?
