So in order to 'MAKE MYSELF TAKE IT EASY' I have started a new stitching project, below you will see where the inspiration hit me, be careful~IT MAY HIT YOU! bIG SMILE!!
Got out all the thread, fabric, and needles
Should I start with turquoise? Red, greens, blues?
Amy who is very talented started a stitchery with little one inch squares...take a peek here http://countedblessingsproject.blogspot.com/
She is stitching little squares that represent things she loves and is blessed by. What a great idea! So if you would like to join in go there quickly...it looks easy and so much fun...
WHAT CAN IT HURT?
Go take a look at what everyone else has done so far, and remember
Anyone can play along...
Decide and write down the things that you enjoy and are blessed by and then start
small...stitch a little here...doesn't have to be fancy. I wrote down 40 things so far that I love or have blogged about in the past year. If you think 'I can't draw or cross stitch or embroidery'...I would say "Oh yes you can!" Type in at google...vintage embroidery patterns, or free cross stitch patterns. If you see something you like you could use a bit or piece of the design for one of your squares. Of course you want to be original, but start with an easy design and incorporate it in to one of your squares....
I even started a new blog to just focus on the stitching/blessings project! Take a look when you have a chance...you may get inspired. http://countyourfarmhouseblessings.blogspot.com
I love this idea also for a baby blessings sampler, wedding sampler, anniversary sampler...wow...the ideas are endless.
How about for a teenager (pink and black) or kids (red, blues and greens) or a shabby friend, do a small sampler with pale pastels....
Come stitch with us!
