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.


  1. Great colors that pop next to each other. Glad you show ed us your stitching, lovely and adds texture.

  2. I love the bright colors and how you mix them! Really Great!

  3. Just another thing you have inspired me to do! I love having little projects in my purse to work on!

  4. New approaches needed for implementation of new operating procedure. It actually increases your work efficiency. This article actually helps me out. Animal Embroidery Designs
