should I, shouldnt I?

I started this xstitch 'belt' hoping that it would be a wearable piece of craftivism but I've messed up it up so many times I'm not convinced its worth finishing.

what do you think? All of the hearts are different shades of red= oops! the letters arent all on the same lines = oops! and it takes so long to do I'm struggling to find the energy and motivation to carry it on = oops! :s

I thought i would xstitch about a metre long and then just pin it on black dresses as a belt. It would include other words like empowerment and freedom and whatever else fits on the end.

maybe it will look less threatening because its wonky, maybe it will be more of a conversation starter because it looks homemade or maybe its just really lame and will look embarrassing if i wear it.

hmmm....decisions decisions.

Finish it! Finish it! It's gorgeous!

I reckon noone will notice/mind very much if it's a bit wonky. Is there any reason at all it should be perfect? I think not!

It is indeed a lovely thing to make. Can't wait to see the finished project.

My goodness, don't lose heart - finish it. Those little things you see as faults are marks of your own hard work and craft as you made it.

Finish it!
