Motivational Monday: Learn a new skill!
Curiosity and learning are what keeps us young. Learning new things stimulates your mind and enriches your experiences . New skills can also bring new people into your life who share the same hobby or sport.
One of my goals this summer was to learn to embroider. I have quilted
, crocheted, and cross stitched in the past, so I have some experience with fabric and thread... but I had never embroidered.
I started with a few sampler kits to learn the basics. Many of the starter kits include all the materials and links to tutorial videos. Although some of the stitches are simple- others are much easier to learn with a video.
I saw an incredible embroidery gratitude journal on Instagram and it motivated me to learn how to do it. After I've completed several of these sampler beginner kits, I think by the new year, I'll be ready to start my 2024 Embroidery Gratitude Journal!
Here is a kit available on Amazon for making your own! If you search embroidery/gratitude journal you can find all kinds of ideas!
Now embroidery may not be your thing, maybe it's baking, bread-making, yoga, bonsai... find a new thing and learn a new skill! Your life will be better for it! ❤️
