Mindful Stitching is a movement that uses hand stitching to quiet the mind. At least, that's how I understand it.
I've never been into meditation so I'm sure there is more to this movement but I decided to use a running stitch with 4 different variegated threads to cover a piece of mud cloth. Of course, I broke all the rules by listening to the radio while I was working instead of stitching in silence. I've never been a fan of "getting in touch with your inner self" but will confess to having my palm read a couple of times.
I have no idea what I will do with this cloth but I can tell you, the process was fun and fulfilling, and I'm all about process! (AND, I love hand stitching!)
