I suppose I'm feeling a little introspective because I find myself recently taking on the mantle of sharing hand crafted art skills with the next generation. The youngest two in the family have been experimenting with crochet, latch hook, knitting, sewing, and most recently painting. I'm not really used to the idea of being a mentor and I don't consider myself to operate on a teaching level, but I am fortunately not the only person sharpening these young minds. They are surrounded by adults who are happy to pass on new skills and are encouraging them to learn everything they can.
I hope you will take a few moments today, slow down, and hand stitch something. I will be working on the Wizard and Dragon Cross Stitch later this afternoon. I have recently come up with a lighting solution that suddenly makes stitching on this black fabric enjoyable.
And in the meantime, if there happens to be a miniature human somewhere around you today, take the time to show them some new awesome skills.
