|Life is Beautiful Block #5|
This week I have been stitching on my Life Is Beautiful project. I finished my 5th block which had some fun stitches, including a feather stitch down the middle of the pear.
One of the best things about hand stitching is that it is a portable activity. Wherever I go, I always have my hand stitching project bag with me. This is the shop hop bag I made many years ago and I still use it to carry projects in. It's lightweight and just the perfect size to be an easy take-along. Most people are sure to take their purse, a wallet, keys, or other necessities when they leave the house, (and I do take those things too), but I always take some hand stitching with me - just in case. In case I have waiting time, down time, traffic jam time, or visiting time, I can keep my hands busy and my heart calm and happy.
And what's inside my bag? Today it has my next Life Is Beautiful block in it, along with everything I might need - hoop, thread, and scissors. Every project bag needs it's own pair of scissors, since there is nothing worse than having lots of stitching time but no scissors to cut your thread!
