Hand Embroidery Kit - Under The Sea


A little information about Hand embroidery and its benefits.

Hand embroidery brings a sense of relaxation and calm, with it's repetitive actions leading you to welcome a relaxed and calm, mindful state. Science has even reported some of the benefits of crafting as; stress relief, increased happiness, improved memory and concentration and well as a sense of accomplishment.

I love to teach the wonderful techniques and stitch styles that embroidery offers but more than just skill sharing, I want to offer space for you to set aside time for well-being.  I encouraging others to carve out time to create and enjoy the benefits that being creative offers. I truly I believe that hand embroidery is good for the soul. It keeps hands busy in a soothing, methodical embroidery haze. 

So get ready to enjoy listening to the pop and pull of the needle and thread working together, whilst its creates something beautiful, right there, in the palms of your hands. My hope is that hand embroidery becomes the perfect activity for down time and a soulful pleasure for you.

My work style is inspired by nature around me. Beautiful florals and green botanicals feature heavily. Inspirational quotes, chunky textures and beautiful detail will feature throughout the monthly designs. Whatever the design, you will be sure to receive a wonderful hand embroidery kit, delivered to your door.

 The August Kit - Under The Sea: The Inspiration 

We recently went on a family holiday to Wales and our beautiful seaside finds are the inspiration behind the August design. Treasure hunting for sea shells was such a wonderful memory to make with our children. The squeals of delight when we found a full shell, a different shape from the last was just wonderful.

We swam in the warm sea and saw beautiful shoals of fish darting around our feet before swimming off as quickly as they greeted us and there was such a variety of seaweed washed up on the beach, in so many colours, shapes and textures.  And the jelly fish finds were met with high pitched screeches but were then followed with sheer fascination as they bobbed along gracefully by us in the sea.

All of my kits are designed with experiences and memories in mind, I hope this one is one that you will all enjoy creating whilst thinking of your time with loved ones by the sea.
