Eh. It's one of those things where you have to just kind of keep at it. This one I'm half assing, but the next one I'm going to be a lot more careful with. Crafts are repetitive motions, so it's important to build good habits, not bad. After that, it's just practice, practice, practice.
But you should totally explore them. The agravation is part of the fun and it's nice to have a finished product you can be proud of. :)
