Look what I can do!

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

Actually, it's not so tough after all!

So what about you? Have you put something off out of fear or laziness and discovered it to be easy and worthwhile?
