Embroidery is not the quickest way to create an image, but it shows dedication, perseverance, care, skill, patience and creativity.
There's a reason embroidery has stood the test of time too. Like knitting, it's handy enough that you can pop it in your bag and take it with you, or you can take on something on a heroic scale like the Bayeux Tapestry (it's actually embroidered) You can use colour, texture, images or words. You can be quick and dirty or supremely skilled. There is no limit to what you can do with it, and in the hands of modern makers it's subversive, beautiful and infinitely varied.
It's also a gentle way to focus on the moment, where the actions of your hands lead your thoughts. Relax, step away from worries and reground yourself for a couple of hours.
