I finished my hand stitched piece for heather, and just in time for the deadline that is tomorrow. It will be on it's way in the morning. :) Since Heather and I are both so new to embroidery (my second piece) we had asked to be matched up. She mentioned that she loved the bike pattern from sublime stitching, and it seemed like a great one that would help me learn a couple new stitches but not be too intimidating. It was a fun piece!! Now I'm ready for some more!! I love how calm and soothing embroidery can be. It seems as though it is meditating for the mind. A must have in my fast pace life. Anything to slow me down, and give a chance to ponder all the things important in my life.
