More stitch meditations

This has become my new obsession, and a lovely way to get back into doing hand stitching.  I spend time each day adding stitches and perhaps some embellishments to 4 inch squares of fabric:

I'm enjoying the process, and it is very calming to an overactive mind!  
But being who I am, I started wondering what I could do with these little squares... other than have them pile up and clutter an already insanely chaotic studio:

So here are a few groupings of the meditations:

I also trimmed one down and mounted it on a 4 inch canvas:
I'm sure there are other ways to use these, and will continue to mull that over... just not
while I'm stitching.  I am really enjoying the time I spend on these!  Plenty of time to hatch new
ways to use them... later!

Sounds like a wonderful practice!! I am wanting to do something along that line as well but with multi-media.

Hand stitching can be so calming -- I'm glad you've discovered something you love for the new year. Your colors are so bright and joyful!

These are great. Lots of good textures and patterns. Hand stitching is very relaxing and brings back good memories for me.
