Digging into My Stash of Embroidery Floss

It’s been years since I did any embroidery.

I first picked it up when I was about 11 or 12. My oldest sister was into it; I probably started to do it to emulate her, but then discovered that I liked it.

I’ve been aware of Zentangles for some time now. I checked out a couple of books from the library, and did some doodling, but never found — or made — the time to do it on a daily basis.

Likewise, the recent fad for adult coloring books.

But I like to have a variety of handwork projects to work on while watching television in the evenings. Right now, I have a pair of socks and a small quilt to work on. Usually, I also have a hand pillow going, but I just finished one.

So I thought this might be a good time to start on this Zenbroidery panel I bought a couple months ago.

This might take awhile.

    Love that panel! I’ve always found the slow stitching aspect of embroidery to be very therapeutic.


  2. Beautiful Zenbroidery! There isn’t nothing as relaxing as hand sewing in the evening:)
