checking off steps and meditative stitching

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

Focused on making steady progress on two giant projects this week.

One being a huge embroidery project that I started years ago. And the other being the Shawl Geometry Books Update.

Working on the embroidery project is rhythmic and meditative. There was a beginning, now is a looooooong middle, and at some point there will be an end. But there are never steps to check off (though I could make some if I wanted to) – there is merely one stitch at a time.

On the other hand, the updating Shawl Geometry Books has been a project full of steps and mini projects. This week: finish knitting the final swatches for the third book – done! And then weave in all the ends – done!

Next? Blocking. And editing graphics.

And also, stitching one stitch at a time.
