Learn something — anything.

I’ve always loved to learn.  This gnome is the product of a needle felting class I took at a local yarn shop — shout out to Kaleidoscope Fibers!  My gnome is not as refined as the instructor’s, yet I take joy in the knowledge of having learned the basics of something new to me — never mind the quality of the end result.  In my view, mistakes and imperfections (let’s call them unintentional customizations) are the hallmark of handmade.  Something made with human hands, mind, and heart.  Learning stretches my mind.  Learning can be frustrating and difficult at times.  But God has placed tenacity in me.  And persisting in learning has never let me down.  I may not have acquired the knowledge I expected nor produced the result I anticipated, but I learned something.
