Keep calm and stitch on

I have recently taken up slow stitching. Stitching by hand. Big stitches. Experimenting with different stitches. It is surprisingly cathartic and relaxing. This will be a journal cover which I hope to fill with more stitched pages. This is like collaging and painting with thread. I included the embroideries I did recently, the gnome and the butterfly. And included scraps of cloth from my kids, e.g the piece of jeans and the pretty pink fabric. Memories all stitched together. I love the messy homemade look. Thankful to have something that helps my brain to slow down. And focus on one stitch at a time. Keep calm and stitch on…
