Slow stitching

Inspired and helped by Michelle, I have started a little collection of hand embroidered onesies for the new wee people who will join our family this year. First off the embroidery hoop is this little fellow. It has been a while since I did any hand stitching like this. How is it that something requiring (from me) such concentration and care can be so soothing.

I found exactly the same thing when we did hand quilting on the course at addicted to fabric. I think that maybe it's so soothing entirely because it requires that level of concentration and care. :)

...and the end result looks fantastic Nettie! Go you! :)
