The idea of traditional embroidery or cross-stitching is too much for me. Recently, my mom tried explaining it to me and it was a mathematical mess in my head. She said it was a relaxing hobby but I couldn't be more stressed out, I was a neurotic mess for 20 minutes just trying to figure out even where to start the first stitch.
I don't remember how I came across Sublime Stitching, but the first time I saw this, I decided to give it a go.
"This ain't your gramma's embroidery" slogan sold me.
The Kit comes with:
- Embroidery Hoop
- Embroidery Needle
- Embroidery Floss - seven colors
- Pink Embroidery Scissors
- Stitch Lessons and Complete Instructions
- Your choice of one Textile (I chose the pillow case)
- Your choice of one pattern (I chose this pattern)
(BTW, this kit is different from Rebecca's, who is currently doing a similar Sublime Stitching Project. Also Ambika is working on it, too. Instead of the McClintock effect, synchronized blogging takes place here after spending a lot of time with these ladies online)
I wasn't crazy about the thread that came with it, so I used my own.
Other than the thread, the kit comes with everything you need to get started.
Relaxing, soothing, comforting, warming, calming-whatever you want to call it, it does it. Just turn on your favorite music or podcast, and it makes for a great evening.
This is my first design, and I'm not done with it, but I can't wait to finish it, and download more patterns.
