Welcome to the #sew4thesoul challenges. 

I love stitching but sometimes you can get a bit 'bogged' down with 'making things. So I decided, in 2020, to set myself a challenge over the whole of the year to stitch for the love and enjoyment of stitching. I gathered together fabric from my stash and made a start. Little did I know that in 2020 we would go into lockdown for the majority of the year and how much I, and others, would have stitching that would bring us all together.

You can follow the challenges over on my YouTube channel, see videos of the work of others and join in yourself.
