The past few days I felt a little more stressed than my usual zen. So I decided to do some mindless embroidery. A long while back, one of my readers had swapped with me and I requested for thrift shop items with embroidery. The problem with thrift shop items is sometimes the fabric is stained. But the embroidery is mostly good. So I wanted to keep whatever is worth keeping and then add some embroidery to it. It's very much like something new from something old.
I started out slowly with running stitches. Then I totally lost control. I just piled on the embroidery. I even added beads! If you're wondering why the red satin stitches really pop, it's because I used sashiko thread.
What do you think? Is it worth all that effort to save the old embroidery? By the way, I decided this embroidery will look nice as a brooch. And the embroidery did keep me relaxed and take my mind off the humidity and daily grind.
Tomorrow I'm going to a knitting party. What will you be doing?
