Brooklyn students embroider their ideas: Part 17

Be a Better Person, by Abigail

You’re not alone Abigail! I think most people want to be better people. The other good news is that most of us are already pretty superb people. 🙂 Great work!

In Mandarin, translates to "Don't be afraid." by Lucara

Lucara wrote: “Viewers can learn that I am precise and I like doing cross stitching. I followed my pattern except in a few places where what I had drawn wasn’t possible on the Aida Cloth. I made it all work out though. My number line didn’t really help me after the first few stitches. My attitude towards the project stayed the same the whole time; it was very positive and excited.”

I really enjoyed the lower border on this work–it really brings out the middle character. This is a great piece, and message!

Decide, by Merlin

“People might learn from my project that I can be indecisive. That’s why I chose DECIDE. To help me make my project I used a number line and made a pattern to follow. However, in the end I didn’t use the exclamation points that I put in the pattern because I thought they were excessive. After doing this project, I have become better at deciding.”

In my experience, too, I am awful at making decisions! My poor husband has to wait all the time while I figure out what I want (he doesn’t need to learn patience, that’s for sure)! Making decisions is a tough thing to do. I admire you, Merlin, for achieving that goal!
