Lady in Red

 Hi all!  Today was an indoor day, a little gloomy with the sun going in and out.  A little on the cold side with my condition making me feel quite cold so spent the day embroidering.  Today I embroidered the red mandala hearts on gold silk.  I am so enjoy the simplicity of them.  Very meditative.  Straight stitches and French knots.  Very relaxing.  The other red mandala ornament was made a few weeks ago for the same reason.   I love to meditate to them too.  I put them in my hand and sit very quietly rubbing the design gently with my fingers.  They are very comforting and soothing.  There are times since I got sick that I am just kind of overwhelmed.  Embroidering has always been my go to when stressed, even when I was a kid.  I guess it’s the focusing on the needle and the repetition.  Up and down up and down.  I framed a small art piece today but I haven’t decided whether I want to sell it on Etsy or bring it to Valley Artisan Market.  I will share that in a couple of days.  For now the mandala ornaments/pillows are available on my Etsy shopDebs Tangled Stitches.  Thanks for reading.  Keep stitching.
