Spirit Series

SimplicityClick to see the finished cross-stitch

Perfect for a contemporary home, this piece settles right in with the young at heart, and reminds us daily of the benefits that simplicity brings.

New and different from Great Bear Canada, the Spirit Series celebrates the values that make a difference in our lives. Combining nature with a single, meditative word, they invite the viewer to enter into the spirit of the piece.

These new patterns from Great Bear Canada are a pleasure to stitch – full color charts open up to 11” x 17”. Get caught up in the spirit of adventure and experiment with Silk Mori threads from Kreinik or variegated threads from Weeks Dye Works. Simple to follow and needlework-friendly too.

Michelle talks about simplicity
We live in such hectic times and keep such frantic paces. Jobs have become more specialized, family roles more complex, technology more daunting. It takes a daily effort to sidestep the madness. But it’s only when I peel off the layers of unnecessary things that I can see what is important to me.

I see the values, the relationships, the activities that mean the most and bring the greatest joy. Maybe this means that I make simpler meals or cram fewer things into my agenda. Maybe it means saying no to more gadgets, no to more commitments.

Simplifying, and then simplifying some more, leaves space for what matters. Just seeing this word every day is a reminder to live simply.

And simply live.
