pattern: don't be distracted

Don't be Distracted

This week, I'm sharing embroidery patterns featuring the words of some of my favorite songs. I call it, Lyrical Lettering!

Today, I have words that are from, probably, the longest songs in my iTunes collection. And I've probably listened to it 100 times. It's that good. Sufjan Stevens is in my top three for musical artists (they all rotate spots), and Impossible Soul is like 3 or 4 songs in one. It has multiple movements to it. And throughout, you hear "don't be distracted."


Did you listen? When you have time, listen to the whole thing. All 25 minutes! Don't be distracted is a phrase that I frequently need to hear. So this now hangs over my desk, reminding me not to check twitter every 2 minutes, and not to get caught up in the things that don't matter. There's important work to be done!

Don't be distracted! Stitch about it and never forget! Download the PDF here.

Don't Be Distracted

I stitched this up using the colors from the "Impossible Tomorrow" color grouping from last week's post. The colors seemed right for this (from Impossible Soul), and tomorrow's pattern!
