Where the Sky Touches the Sea
Being by water, specifically the sea, always instils in me a feeling of calm. Some of my best and most vivid childhood memories are of trips to the beach; paddling, building sandcastles, ice-creams and my dad lifting me over the waves. I remember the first touch of the salty sea water on my toes, sharp and cold. The sea was never ending, it went as far as I could see, and kissed the sky and from that day on, I was in love with the magic of being by the sea.
Salty air, cool breeze, sweeping tides and rippling waves for there is nowhere else I would rather be than Where the Sky Touches the Sea.
Just 5 different stitch styles make up this whole design. I will teach you how to perfect your satin stitch and show you tips and tricks to get your needle work on point! This month you will receive a link to a full and detailed video tutorial in place of photographic instructions. Everybody learns in different ways, and this is a chance for you to embrace learning directly from me in real time.
Hand Embroidery and it's benefits
Hand embroidery can help to focus your mind whilst encouraging relaxation and calm. Embrace your creative by making something beautiful each month and I will be there to guide you within my hand embroidery community, should you feel that being creative is not your natural forte.
Studies have shown that being creative helps to relieve stress, increases happiness, improves memory, and can also increase your concentration. My hope is that hand embroidery becomes the perfect activity for down time and a soulful pleasure for you.
