Meditation in Stitches

The magic of needle and thread...

My breathing slows.

My focus centers, and yet discovers freedom to roam - to daydream, chat, smile at my children.

I emerge rested, alive.

And surprised.  How is it that simple stitches produce something so beautiful?

  1. I too, love to hand sew and notice how my breathing slows down. I am grateful that I live in a time when sewing is making such a strong comeback. Carolina

  3. That is gorgeous. I, too, think of sewing as meditation of sorts. I can definitely be my "therapy" at times because it helps me take my mind off everything else.
