Brooklyn students embroider their ideas: Part 12

Take a Chance, by Muse

“The story behind my work is this: I’m always too afraid to take a chance. I try most of the time to go unnoticed in crowds and such. When Ms. Anita* told us to cross-stitch a message we were learning, ‘Take a Chance’ came to mind. Now whenever I look at it I feel braver and stronger. I added the picture of a bird to it because birds are free to fly and they take advantage of that by being brave. I want to be a bird.”

Muse, this work turned out great! Well done. It is hard to take a chance, you are right. I hope that whenever you do, the very best results are yours!

Calm Down, by Ciarra

Ciarra wrote: “Viewers can learn that when I get upset I make bad decisions, so when I am upset I have to take a moment to say, ‘Calm down.’ I did make a number line to help me with my cross stitching.”

This is a great mantra to live by Ciarra. The outline with the letters is terrific! I especially like the boat–what an excellent icon to remind us of something “calm,” like calm waters. You did a great job! 🙂

Smile and Read, by Mayra

This is really nice work Mayra. And it’s two of my favorite things to do! 🙂
