I never leave home without a couple different options for hand stitching projects I can work on. I love my sewing machine, but I am so thankful for embroidery. I have two young girls and we are always on the go – parks, libraries, museums. But this often means I have downtime to sit while they play. Embroidery is the perfect craft for these occasions because it’s small and something I can easily pick up and put down. Most of my stitching is done in several minute spurts, but that’s enough to start to make progress.
Even if I only manage to sneak in a couple stitches, embroidery is always makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something.
I've been organizing and purging craft stuff and I keep coming across stuff I've forgotten about or had lost. I've been looking for this sashiko piece to make into a bag since I saw the one that @knitty34 made. And now that I found it I don't have no time to actually make it. I'll probably lose it again when I actually have time to make it… 😂 #hugsarefunstitches #sashiko #sewtherainbow
