Stitch Therapy

Discovering me … one stitch at a time

And then there were three.

These stars are a dream to stitch. It takes me exactly two episodes of House of Cards to complete one star.  It’s a lovely way to spend an evening. Season 2- Wowza! Anyone else watching it? Let’s discuss because I’m obsessed.

I have been in such a funk this week, probably due to the unrelenting cold weather combined with frustrations at work. I try to separate my work and home life, but sometimes it is a challenge and things seep in from one to the other.

Sometimes at night, I get really anxious thinking about everything. I like to lie next to Tom in bed and he will talk to me, telling me things about the Universe and matter and math. I don’t like the math part, but his soft, gentle voice never fails to calm me and lull me into sleep. He probably gets offended because he thinks that I am bored by what he says, but really it’s just that finally finding that cozy feeling after a particularly hard day makes sleep impossible to resist. I am so thankful for home. And family. And love.

A new start




  1. What a wonderful post and beautiful quote.

    We’re planning to start watching House of Cards. I don’t know if I can handle the intrigue but I do love Kevin Spacey so I’ll give it a chance. When you stitch on this fine linen, do you count the tiny holes, or do you measure the distance from one star to another with a ruler? And did you stitch the border of the material with the white thread yourself? I’m such a novice, I hope these questions are not too silly.

  2. I loooove Kevin Spacey! I don’t usually like political dramas and wasn’t into it the first few episodes, but it gets sooooo good.

    Your questions aren’t silly at all. You still have to count on linen. I just don’t have to count “as much” since these shapes are so symmetrical and predictable. I stitch the edges of the material with my sewing machine to help prevent fraying. I don’t always do that, but it does seem to help.

    Happy Weekend! xo

    Your stars are lovely! And so is that quote. 🙂

  4. I’m not watching House of Cards, but maybe I should be. Your stars are looking fabulous. So perfectly stitched.

  5. Thank you!

I love to hear from you!
