I decided to do embroidery because it was a new activity that I have never done before. I thought that it would be something to test my patience and perseverance, as I did not know my strength on these aspects. Before this activity, I had a doubt on my patience and perseverance, because I did not think that I had patience and that I persevere. Because I was embroidering the characters that I felt the passion for, I thought it was not going to be as challenging as embroidering the other drawings.
I did well on being able to design the embroidery to make characters that I like. Using the threads that were given, I was able to bring color and life to the characters. I learned that embroidery takes lots of patience and perseverance, as it is a very long and repetitive process that could get boring. Only having such done in 3 hours, I felt mentally difficult, as I thought there were a plethora of things left to do.
In the beginning, I was to have an ordered embroidery kit to work on; however, it did not come on time, and I had to design and embroider my own. This was a very good opportunity for me to be able to handcraft the things that I wanted, which was the BT21 characters. Even though it took me over 30 minutes to design and draw the characters, I was able to manage the time to finish the embroidery, as I was able to use the stitching techniques of my choices.
One day is important because it is an opportunity for me to try something new. It was a chance to test my limits on the categories that we chose. By choosing embroidery, I was able to see what I like to do, and what I do not. To finish my work, I had to bring it home and it was a very challenging process physically and mentally, as I was working on this for over ten hours. However, I think it was a time to show my parents what I have achieved on OneDay.
