April is Off to a Good Stitching Start

April came in so quickly I think my head is still spinning with the same old question of where does the time go?

Today I have a short answer, for me it goes with each and every stitch I make when working on a hand embroidery project. I lose myself completely in my stitching, my breathing and heart beat get slower, my muscles relax, I achieve a meditative state.

I pulled out the Lunar Blossoms kit from Cozy Blue I bought a few months ago and finished the stitches on Saturday.
Stitched Moons

I love this little Moon phases piece I will finished it later this week as a hanging in a hoop.  I love the little sashiko look it has so I ordered the iron on transfer so I can make another using a different background.  You can also order just the pattern download. The kit came with the printed fabric, needle and embroidery floss. I ordered mine from the Etsy shop
I will be starting on this Zenbroidery kit as part of the 1 Year of Stitches 2017 and the A Year in Stitches challenges I am participating in this year.

the kit
Several members of the two groups are doing this pattern, the kit includes the printed fabric and a needle.
I will link my post today at
Happy Stitching and Happy Day to All of You!


  1. I LOVE your stitched moons. Such beautiful embroidery.

  2. I love that moon piece. The fabric is such a pretty blue.

  3. Deb I love the Lunar stitch.


  4. Your moon stitchery is lovely. xx

  5. Lovely stitching. Stitching has the same effect on me. I bury myself in it while Terry watches things on TV that I don't care to watch.
