Sandra has just finished her meditative stitching. She decided she wanted to stitch into a more complex shape than a square or circle so did a search to see if some shapes looked better thn others. She liked the idea of a cat, feather, or bird but finally settled on a fish.
She drew the outline onto some green material, reminded herself of line stitches, and then just hand stitched in bright colours as she wanted it to be cheerful!

She said the hand stitching was therapeutic and fun but has given her a sore finger!!!
Meditative Doodling in Squares
Lynn suggests that we work with paper and pen before we attempt to make a design for stitching. She has made you a try-out piece with squares of various sizes for you to work into.
Thanks Lynn for a totally different idea for stitching.
Janet has made some very pleasing patterns with her doodling and it is very interesting the way the patterns appear to move when you look at them.
Thank you Janet and we will all be watching to see how the patterns translate into stitch.
These doodles were sent by Sandra. Some are worked black pen on white paper and some white pen on black paper.
