Simple Stitches ~

I've never been one for 'fancy' things...

the plainer the better for me.


I'm drawn to drab colors & uncomplicated design
and I try to incorporate both into my work.


I would much rather work with a simple needle and thread
than any new-fangled thing...



I am still pleasantly surprised when I finish a sampler
or project ~ as I watch the finish come to life on cloth...

I love to incorporate olden dates and names,
...some fictual, some actual ~
and sometimes one will speak to me as if I actually knew them.



sitting in my chair,
working with thread, needle and cloth ~
creating something that hopefully will be passed
on to another generation of needlewoman...


appreciated for what they are;


simple little stitches
gifts from the past.




Blessings from the Farm...

I think we all crave "simple stitches" in the more peaceful parts of our beings. Thanks for sharing yours with the rest of us.
