What matters, Lauren, is the finished piece. Usually when it's done, you should not be able to tell if it was done by a right or a left hander. Generally speaking though, while you're working it will generally be a mirror image of what a right hander would do. All in all, looks like you're off to a great start, and I too look forward to the finished object.
Wisdom is knowing what to do. Skill is how to do it. Virtue is getting it done.
That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.
