Quick is good, no? We are all so used to striving for speed, efficiency and ASAP in everything. Even in my sheltered world of stitch. Most craft books emphasise the quickness, the ease of their projects. And yet.
To be honest, although quick makes are lovely as an option (and I’ve written about some on here) my heart lies with the slow burning, madness inducing, detail ridden projects. They always seem to be things I give away which is strange. Probably a deep rooted psychological reason for this but I don’t really care. I just do it.
Witness my little house. Brilliant fun to make. Took ages. I was sad when it was over.
A bit like the slow food movement when it comes to making stuff I’m Slow Stitch all the way. Sadly, I’m slowing down physically too due to Uncle Parkinson but at least I’m learning to accept it in one part of my life. My challenge is how to take some of that calmness and apply it elsewhere in my life.
Slow is my friend. If I keep on saying it, it might come true.
