little stitches

Doing embroidery on these coffee cozies I’ve been making has reminded me that hand sewing is actually quite satisfying and pleasurable.  You don’t have an item that grows as quickly as something crocheted or knitted, but the in and out motion of the needle can be a sort of meditative task.  Last night I made a little catnip toy with a felt heart on it, and tonight I sewed some sparkly yellow felt into a sort of french fry shape and then sewed a flower on.  I gave the french fry to the kitties, too.  They like to bat around little plushy things, and drop them into their water dishes.
