Things have been very busy in the world of me lately, so much so that I haven't really taken the time out to stitch for myself. I started embroidering because I love it, and while I love writing about embroidery and making items to sell, there's still this inexplicable joy I get when stitching something just because I want to.
I found this free pattern available from Stacey over at her blog, Bakercourt. It's been on my to-do list for a while, but I finally got around to working on it over the weekend. It really helped me relax and remember that no matter how crazy or hectic life gets... it really is beautiful.
