I have spent the past couple of days stitching together 12 metres of silk habotai by hand. It was good to have a big project to work on. Yesterday I sat and finished the last seam while watching Brightstar. Thanks to Bridget for reminding me I hadn't seen it yet (you can see the trailer here). There was something very soothing about sitting and stitching, a meditative action.
I am really enjoying the massive scale I have started working at, it seems somehow liberating. Yet I am keen to retain an attention to detail I can only achieve with hand stitch. Stitch is good for the soul.
