One Stitch at a Time

I feel like it’s really easy for all us crafty people to get caught up in our piles (& piles) of WIP’s, and sometimes to become a little impatient that they’re not going quick enough.

I stumbled across this on Pinterest, and I think it’s a reminder to take it all in.

Take it all in that you have the ability to create something magical.Β 

Take it all in that you have the resources to create something unique.

Take it all in that you have the time to create something special.

Take it all in that you are making something that is close to your heart, something that represents you.

Take it all in that you can gift your creations to make others feel special.Β 

I get impatient when I feel like a project is taking too long. I know it’ll be worth Β it in the end, and I know I’ll get there, but sometimes I’d like to to just go that little bit faster.

This is my reminder that I’m lucky, and blessed to have the opportunity and support to be the maker of something wonderful.

  1. Oh yeah, I also have this problem with my cross stitch! Less so with my knitting- not sure if it’s because it quicker (at least seems to be in my head!) and I’ve been doing it for longer

    • I can’t relate to the knitting point, as I don’t knit (yet!) but I’m somewhat glad someone else feels like this with their cross stitch haha .. I thought I was just impatient! :)

    • Yes you’re right, that’s such a great point .. every stitch really is one more towards the finished project!
      I definitely find myself rushing to finish, and then my stitches aren’t as flat which is just downright annoying haha .. There’s merit to patience is a virtue I think.
