hand stitching is BEEEAUTIFULL!






been working on alot of older, unfinished projects...must be something about a new beginning or cleaning up the past - who knows? anyway, it's fun. i love the way spiritcloth takes close up shots of her hand stitching. so i decided to do the same. hand stitching is so beautiful to me. i have loved that look since i saw my first hand-stitched quilt when i was a kid. i like the unevenness of hand stitching and the uniqueness of each stitch. i remember back in the day when i used to strive for 14 stitches per inch - ha. st. quilta cured me of trying to make small even stitches.
