I love the practice of hand stitching. The world turns quiet and the movement always calms me. Seeing the end result of colorful marks on my paper and fabric quilts with thick colorful threads gives me a sense of joy and accomplishment.
It is a meditative act that I've learned to love.
I try to always have at least one project at this stage so I can stop whatever I am doing and enjoy the stillness of the moment.
