It's essential to take an hour or so throughout the day to reflect on how we're doing and what needs to be adjusted, and hand stitching can help to carve out time in everyone's day to help keep us grounded in what is essential and what isn't. It's a great way to reflect, slow down, and reflect on life's current situations.
When I hand stitch, I enjoy listening to the boys working on a lego project or overhearing them watching a tv show. In the summertime, I'll take a handwork project with me on family trips to wake up early to sit outside on the porch to stitch with coffee nearby. Another great time to bring projects is to the pool, the boys will swim, and I'll enjoy the sun or shade by stitching away.
