Nautical Stitching

Nautical Stitching

I had a wonky little scrap of antique linen, so I made a peculiar little nautical needle book.

Stitching has become calming and meditative for me.  I seem to be turning to it more and more.

I worry that over time my stitching will become too practices and regular, when what I love is the Wabi Sabi, Come as it May process.

Kantha Style Quilted Footstool

A little blue footstool–a vintage thrift store find–became the newest fodder for my latest stitching obsession.

 

This cotton upholstery fabric finally earned its keep in my stash, pairing beautifully with the original paint of the stool.
I love the texture the stitching gives.
