The Needle?

IMG_2738 IMG_2737

As Maree would say “what’s in my hoop”.

Yep another little stitchery……I really think I may have a bit of an obsession with stitcheries….but I do find sitting down at night for just that half an hour is so relaxing…I have a very stressful job and I find just picking up that needle doing a few stitches seems to unwind me…what does picking up the needle do for you?

Remember your “me'” time…

Take care Peg  …….:>)

It is a lovely stitchery Peg. I know what you mean, have it with knitting.

Very pretty, love the stitcheries you do; and I know where you are with doing a little each night to unwind *grin*

'tis lovely...I do so enjoy stitching, it is definitely relaxing, a meditation of sorts!

What a lovely little stitchery. I haven't done any embroidery for awhile, and yours is really inspiring me.

I find a needle in hand very relaxing as long as I am sticking into something besides my skin!

Lovely work Peg , it does make a difference at the end of a hard day !

Jackie said...

I agree with you, being able to sit down with your family or just yourself for a few stolen moments can be very refreshing and relaxing. What better way to do it than to have a stitchery at hand? This one is really pretty.

Spending time doing a little bit of sewing reminds me of who I am, which gets a bit lost in the chaos of working and four kids. Love your stitcheries..they look great!

Picking up the needle for me means zoning out or listening to inspiring CD's. It is my time to think on the weightier issues of life etc.

Love your stitching.

Kris said...

Wow! You are the stitchiest Peg! Love the stitchery. I feel the same way about stitching. It is very relaxing and my destressor. Makes me want to rush out and start stitching! (I don't think I stitch enough actually. Must do more!)

Jeanette said...

very cute Peg. I know what you mean. I wouldn't be without my needlework at night. Hugs, Jeanette

Elizabeth said...

I find handwork very soothing too. I haven't been up to much of it lately, but you're great inspiration! Beautiful work!

Peg that is a DARLING stitchery! I can't wait to see what it becomes! I too unwind with hand stitching. I got away from it somewhat when hubby bought me an embroidery machine, but it's just not the same. Machine embroidery is faster, for sure, but it lacks heart. And it's not at all stress-free. Nor is it portable!

We go visit a friend every Monday evening, and I always take my latest project. It's so nice to sit and stitch and visit and drink tea!

That's a really cute stitchery, Peg!! I don't make time every day to do stitching... but I know when I do make time... I'm more relaxed and appreciate taking that 30 minutes out for 'me' time. I think it's super important!

Hugs Mary.

Oh Peg, this is just gorgeous....
Can't wait to see the finished product.
I too love sitting at night and stitching but unlike you, I never sit for just 1/2 hour. It's usually ALL night.

Cathi said...

Yet another lovely stitchery!!
I find sitting down and piecing just for a few minutes is absolutely therapeutic for me. Just sitting with fabric, needle and thread brings some equilibrium to the worst days!

Kerri said...

Im trying to do a little stitching each night, but it doesn't seem to happen. Yours looks great though. Maybe I will get organised soon (tomorrow)

Yaya and Papa said...

I have loved all your embroidery!! You are so gifted at it and love your designs!!

Anne-Mette said...

It is hard to find some thing that hasn't been saud already ;-)). I can only agree - sewing and knitting is so relaxing after a hard day at work.
Peg, I hardly can believe, that you also are working ;-)), when I see how much you manage to sew each month.
Love your new sticthery.
Hugs from "up-north" where it is snowing,

Sewing and embroidery are stress relievers for me also. I'm another one with a stressful job and retirement still 6 years away!
