Recently someone asked me, if I had the chance to do it all over again, what would I do differently. If you thought about your career, your relationships, your family, your life, what do you regret.
So, on today’s Taking Back Friday vlog episode, I want to tell you how I figured out my deepest regret when I learned how to weave overshot.
I would love to hear about your own biggest fear in weaving or with making things in general? What holds you back from trying new things, or what could you gain in your life if you said yes to trying these new things? I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
