I got a lot from my grandmother. My optimism, my love of pink, the value of kindness. She taught me to sew, knit, create with my hands, look for the beauty in this world, and so much more. I also quite literally got her collection of embroidery thread, and for a decade it’s been collecting dust in a closet. I finally decided to put it to good use and teach myself embroidery. This website documents my journey as I learn this beautiful art, using the thread that once passed though the hands of my beloved grandmother.
