The simple bliss of needle and thread

I am doing something I haven’t done before, and it is pure delight. 

I am playing with yarn and fabric, turning black markings into beautiful stitches, learning so many techniques as I play. This is connecting me with my child self who hated the embroidering she had to do at school but who was so proud of finishing the sampler. 

I always thought that techniques other than crossstitch were impossible to learn and now I completely enjoy the progress I have no idea what I meant. 

And I have just started making this beauty. I have so much to learn, so much to play. 

Giddy with joy!
