#ThankStitching No. 41 with Liberty Applegate
I am so thankful for the outlet hand embroidery offers me. We have four children, all with different special needs. They are such blessings in our lives, but the mental toll can add up. Sometimes I feel the need to escape, to take some time for myself. Creating hoop art gives me this feeling of escape. The methodical movements bring a sense of stillness to my mind and I love how I can create something that makes me smile.
#ThankStitching is a project to collect and curate reasons why stitchers worldwide are thankful for their particular needle craft. Look for daily posts in November with hourly posts on Thanksgiving Day.
