Embarking on the EC&I 831 project filled me with pure joy and excitement. As I eagerly scanned through the course syllabus, exploring the various options provided by Katia, one particular skill caught my eye—embroidery. Instantly, my heart leaped with anticipation, knowing that this project would allow me to express my creativity, add a personal touch, and bring beauty to the world through this ancient craft.
My fascination with embroidery dates back to my twenties. Even on social media platforms, my search history betrays my deep passion for this art form. From scrolling through countless embroidery patterns to immersing myself in intricate stitches, I have been captivated by the artistry and elegance of embroidery.
From my perspective, Embroidery offers a sense of mindfulness and relaxation. As you thread your needle and begin stitching, you enter a meditative state, focusing solely on the rhythmic motion of the needle and the gentle pull of the thread. It becomes a soothing and therapeutic experience, allowing you to unwind and find solace in the creative process.
For my project, I have decided to dive into the world of social media to explore the vast array of embroidery stitches. With platforms like Instagram and YouTube as my guide, I will embark on a journey to discover and learn various stitches—Whether it’s the delicate satin stitch, the textured French knot, the rhythmic backstitch, and many more. The process of learning something new may be lengthy, but when passion fuels your journey, time becomes irrelevant. Every stitch will be a step closer to mastering this art form and bringing my artistic visions to life.
Embroidery opens a world of boundless creativity, mindfulness, and personalization. Whether I stitch for pure pleasure, create unique gifts that carry a piece of my heart, or simply indulge in the joy of exploring a new hobby, the magic of embroidery awaits me. So, I am going to grab my needle, select my thread, and let the magic of embroidery unfold before eyes.
