I finished this yesterday and took it to the shop today where I did my bit of volunteering for the week. I came home so tired I could barely make myself a cup of tea. I am too tired to do some sewing, but thought I'd at least write a bit and show you my little daisy that I finished yesterday.
I always find these little pieces are such fun to do. Maybe it's because there is less invested in them because of the size. I'm definitely more relaxed as I'm free motion stitching. I need to learn to bring the same state of mind to the larger pieces. I feel the same slowed down state when I sit down with my hand sewing threads and beads. It is meditative. I like to open my windows and sew in silence except for the birdsong that floats in from outside.
