Zen Stitching

I love to do handwork.  On an airplane, in my studio and at night at home.  It has become my nightly ritual with a lap of wool felt, embroidery thread, a long sharp needle and a pair of scissors
This project started because I had wanted something to hand stitch on a trip.  Who knew it would grow to become these great little squares of color, stitching and beauty?  Zen Stitching.  This is very relaxing work.  A group picture of what I have made so far

Made with wool felt, bamboo felt and wool.  The flowers are made from Sizzix die cuts, as well as the hexagons. Each element adds a little something to the square

Here are two just at the start, all pinned together ready for stitching

I am loving how different each one is
Felted flowers added and love the ric rac

The polka dot hexagons are felt too, from Target's Handmade section.
