After seeing it mentioned on several blogs and Pinterest, I decided to look into the idea of slow stitching. I was able to get a copy of Claire Wellesley-Smith’s book and have enjoyed every page and photo. For me, slow stitching means relaxing, process over product, being mindful of the stitches, free form, practice becoming habit.
I gathered a scrap of fabric, some threads and began to stitch. The timer on my phone is set for 20 minutes and I try to clear my mind, concentrate on the stitches and colors. Right now I’ve been adding stitches daily and I’ll slow down when I decide I want a break.
Enjoy your day!
