I am so thankful for hand embroidery and all that it brings to my life. I first started doing counted cross-stitch about 15 years ago when my best friend had a baby and I wanted to create a meaningful and lasting gift. I am so thankful to have found hand embroidery after learning some of the basics of stitching so that I have more creative freedom and can design my own pieces. I love being able to make memorable gifts and to be able to preserve my children’s drawings. I also feel fortunate enough to be able to sell my pieces to help put groceries on the table and it allows my kids to take piano lessons and the like. What can I make for you?

#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.
