Mid-project angst

Frequently I will find myself in the middle of a piece being assailed by misgivings.  "Great idea - can't get it out ofmy head and into the fabric!" "poor fabric choices - need more contrast/less contrast, different colors" on and on.  Advise from experience! Ignore these feelings.  Trust your instincts.  The piece existed in your head long before you mader the first cut.  You've refined it, changed it, adapted it to the fabric you had, to the feelings you had along the way...it may not look right now, but it will improve immensely as it is completed!
