Jeannette Douglas begins a new series, reminding us to Take Time for the things that matter. This lovely little sampler reminds us first and foremost to Take Time to Stitch!

Build your own kit


Take Time to Stitch from the Take Time Series. It is so easy to de-prioritize the things we enjoy in life and busy ourselves with work and daily chores. This sampler offers a reminder to take time for ourselves, and our stitching!

The sampler contains 14 boxes, done in a palette of over-dyed silks. Many “specialty” stitches are used – there are diagrams and written instructions for all of them, making this design approachable – if you have patience (and Google), your initial skill level with specialty stitches will not be important.
