I'm sure you have heard of the slow stitching movement that is going on right now. If you haven't, it's all about how people are slowing down and enjoying the peace and enjoyment of hand stitching. I think if you are a person who enjoys embroidery and hand quilting, it is very appealing. It's not for everyone and certainly not for those who like to produce lots and lots of projects in a year.
However, for me, I really love it. I find it meditative. It's time I take to sit and listen to music, be with Hannah in the studio and basically dream and imagine. This is a sneaky peeky of Dillon Dragonfly. He will be a new class in addition to being a pattern and kit.
I am having a lot of fun stitching him. A needle pulling thread is very comforting and therapeutic, which is good as the job I accepted with the builder McKee Homes of my house is busy. I'm their new Selections Coordinator here in Wilmington. Basically, this means when you buy one of their homes, I will be the person to help you pick all your colors, cabinets, plumbing, lighting, etc. My most favorite parts of building for sure! :)
It's only part time, so no worries, I will not be giving up my designing and teaching of Folk Art Fusion. After all, I really do love being an artist and I'm an artist first, but helping people decorate their homes is an equal, creative passion. ;)
See ya next Wednesday!
