Embroidery as Therapy

In preparation for FSU/ Wesley Parent Weekend, I have stitched a few garnet and gold arrows on a denim shirt.  Fits perfectly with weekend's theme!  Embroidery is and always has been great therapy for me!  I would say cheap therapy but that would be a difficult pitch given the amount of funds spent at local craft/stitch stores!  However, this pattern was free @ sublimestitching.com. The only question is whether to add some more stitches. Do I add a tent? A canoe? A Seminole Indian with regal headgear?  Or am I over compensating for my Gator Girl turned Seminole Mom complex?!  Whoa, this is getting heavy!  Is there a shrink in the house or do I just need to buy more thread? Stitching it out! Jessica Pearl

  5. I know what you mean! I go to a monthly stitch group call "Stitch it Out" - we basically stitch and, yes well, the 'talking' word that rhymes with stitch - lol!
