I've been embroidering a lot lately. Sitting for hours working on one piece sounds romantic, but it's hard to completely fall into it. I wish my surroundings matched the mood I feel while stitching - contemplative, a little nostalgic, longing for a slower world. Ever since I saw Bright Star I'll think about the embroidery scenes, really every scene, and wish for a place something like this....You should definitely check out the movie if you haven't yet – It's beautiful.
There's more bright star inspiration here...
