That is truly ironic! Don’t forget to give yourself credit though Kiara–being on time to school regularly is a great achievement, and you did finish the project, which is excellent!
This is really well done, and a great attitude to have. Not following others and being true to yourself is a very brave thing to do! I can’t wait to see what Avery does in the future!

I remember needing a lot of extra help to actually learn how to cross stitch. Now, reflecting on my project, I realize that although it might not have seemed like I was positive and persistent — I actually was. I asked for extra help instead of just staring at the ceiling with my fake cry. I deserve to have a grin on my face when I look back at everything I have done and how far I have come. That’s why MY MESSAGE IS ‘SMILE.’ ”
That is awesome Ariella! You totally deserve to be smiling–this is a great piece. AND cross stitch is hard, so everyone should feel extra good about what they’ve accomplished!
