Traveling around the world is easy when you stitch up the newest hoops inspired by architecture found in some of the most beautiful places on the planet.
Since I was a kid just learning to stitch, lazy daisy has been a favorite. Probably because I’m a girl and probably because it makes cute flowers. Now that I’ve played and experimented more with this stitch I know that it’s so much more than the cute flower stitch. This stitch is super fun and versatile. Each “petal” can be stitched in a ton of different ways. All that to say this is one stitch you probably want to learn early on. By the way, if you’ve already learned chain stitch, this should be pretty darn easy for you. It’s other name is detached chain stitch.
I have always worked in the margins. My time to work is found in the mornings before kids are up, during naptimes, or after they go to bed (it seems this part of my life revolves around when they are sleeping). That’s probably a good thing.
My workspace has always been in the margins too. The end of the kitchen table, a corner of our bedroom, a shared homeschool room/art studio. But, it was always mine. I knew when I was in that space, no matter how small, it was time to focus and create. If you haven’t found a nook for your creative self, stop right now and go make room. That is one of the single most important things you can do for yourself today.
Delicousness, not just the recipe, but the amazing food photography thoughout the entire post!
This just looks like a ton of fun. I don’t have a concrete patio but I bet I could paint this on a rug to put on my deck!
I sometimes do this and it really does help because I know I have to stay focused for a certain amount of time.

Such a super fun project by Hugs Are Fun! It doesn’t look too difficult either.
My husband and I are planning a 10 year anniversary staycation (sans kids) so that we can finally buy the kayaks we’ve been wanting! Some of the tips Edie gave in this post will be especially helpful.
