Stitch Therapy

Has it been that kind of day for you too? With the increasingly disturbing COVID-19 news and today’s dreary weather, I really needed a pick-me-up and some stitch therapy.

I created these little stitching kits and have been mailing out to my students. It is my hope that they will enjoy this snail mail surprise and lean into their stitching practice as a way to get through these challenging times. Today, I gifted myself one.

Sitting in my studio watching and listening to the heavy wind and rain, I chose a lemony yellow embroidery floss, stripped it down from 6 to 3 strands, and used both seed and running stitches to bring in some sunshine and texture!

Shall we take it one stitch at a time? Wishing everyone light, love and creative energy to get through these difficult dark days.
