Zen Stitching

Zen Stitching.  Wool, wool blended felt, Bamboo felt. Some pieces were sewn on the machine and then hand stitched, mostly at night.  It is totally relaxing.

I love all of the bright colors, shapes and textures.  I dug into my wool treasure chest, and found the small flowers and the balls.  So fun!  #8 Perle Cotton embroidery thread

They also have some cottons and a sheers

Then I added some buttons and a negative cut from the Sizzix Fabi (Big Shot) die cutting machine (lower right hand corner).  Oh the size?  About 10x10

And some hexagons that were also cut on the Fabi machine.  The big flowers are also Sizzix dies.  There is a link to Sizzix in the right column.  I will be teaching this class at City Quilter in NYC in conjunction with Quilters Take Manhattan in late September of this year.


  1. Love the idea of Zen stitching. I have been playing with pentangles to relax and get my creative side going, that is a good way to think about quilting too, just go for it and have fun.


  2. Love it! Another must try!

  3. How CUTE ! I've never tried wool, but I intend to one day.

  4. Very creative article. It shows the diversification of the particular field. It actually extends your reading. Cartoons Embroidery Designs
