Are You Making Enough Progress?

Do you ever look around at some of the amazing work out there 
and think to yourself  'WOW. That is absolutely amazing.'
Closely followed by ' Oh dear, I can't make anything like that ..'

Do you feel you are making enough progress? 

When it comes to beading and jewellery making
 we can be so quick to judge and 'grade'ourselves
compared to other peoples work.
I guess it's human nature to want to be 'top of the class' 
or at the very least not come last!
However, hobby classes are generally setted
into groups like
'total beginner', 'beginner', improver',
'advanced' 'expert' etc
and maybe we shouldn't be so quick to compare ourselves
between 'groups'
everybody beading and making jewellery
 has come to it 
in different ways
 with different levels of physical dexterity or free time.
Or lack of free!

Everybody has to start somewhere
and even those amazing artists had to learn the basic skills
before they could go on and create their masterpieces.

'Beginners' do not become 'experts' overnight - it takes time! 

If you are keen, and interested, and keep learning
then you are making progress, 
and that is a wonderful thing!
