Hexagon fool:

A couple of weeks ago I started a PTLLS course(preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector) because I thought I could teach patchwork and quilting to beginners. A week on Monday I have to do a 30 minute micro teach on my chosen teaching subject. I decided to do English paper piecing and demonstrate how to make a hexagon rose. Now I am up to my eyes in hexagons. Whilst the hexagons are growing my confidence is dwindling and self doubt is eating away at me constantly. Wouldn't it be great if we could just go to a shop and by some confidence. I think I need to make a telephone call for some much needed advice.

You can do this,please don't doubt yourself. You are a talented lady and your passion for your craft will carry you through. I have no doubt that once you start to demonstrate to your rapt audience, your nerves will be forgotten. Enjoy this new opportunity!! I will be thinking of you on Monday xx
