FIBRE ARTIST JESSIE DOUGHTY CREATED THIS MONTH’S CRAFTY PENNANT
“When I think about how crafting makes me feel, I always come back to the word ‘meraki’, which means to ‘do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work’. Seeing your idea become a piece of art you can hold in your hands is another level of happiness and achievement. I take a lot of inspiration from mindfulness – my workspace is full of postcards and pieces of art that have positive mantras on them. Creativity is contagious. That’s why I chose the quote that I did for the design.
This stellar little pennant is a great way to improve your stitching precision and practice (or learn, if you’re a beginner) whipped backstitch! Use your pennant to decorate a nook, or make a gift for a creative pal.”
