Sew I Stitch

When I saw this "meet and greet" sponsored by the lovely
Madame Samm @ Sew We Quilt
I did not sign up because I do not really think of myself as a hand stitcher
and felt my efforts would seem too small.

When I looked through my blog tonight, I was surprised to find that I have done bits and pieces of hand quilting accents on my projects that really enhanced their beauty.

So I have decided to add this link to the get together.

Many of these projects were for Sew We Quilt blog hops.

No surprise there, Mdm Samm has a way of inspiring me to challenge myself.

So here are my humble hand projects ...

All the beautiful hand work that I have seen lately online has been making my fingers itch to pick up some beautiful embroidery threads again and try my hand.

I know the links here in the Meet and Greet will amaze and astound and inspire me.

Many, many years ago I did both hand embroidery and cross-stitching,
but my vision issues keep me from doing much close work these days.

Since I have had recent eye surgery, even my sewing machine work has been a challenge lately,
but I am hoping that soon with my new implant lens
supplimented by the external prescription my eye doctor will soon be able to give me,
that maybe I can stitch again.

Sew I am planning a simple project to get me started so I may stitch along with you.

Thank you for visiting.
