This is what I have taken up in recent quiet moments. This ingenious embroidery sampler made by the immensely talented Rebecca Ringquist. I took her class the other week at A Verb for Keeping Warm and ever since, I have been carrying this tray around with me, practicing my french knots and chain stitches. As you can see, I have some work to do on keeping my floss tidy.
I still love the sewing machine – its heft and efficiency. But this embroidery business matches my speed and mindspace at the moment.
