Kia Kaha = Stay Strong

This is an embroidery design I designed sometime back . I had been holding it so close to my heart.

Working on embroidery projects always takes me back to times when I eagerly looked forward to the summer holiday project , my mom helped me do. She helped me pick out a pattern from Soviet Woman magazine, helped me choose colours and also taught me the stitches.

I regret not pursuing my interests more seriously. Still, Its never too late to make a fresh start.


I’m thrilled it was accepted to be sold in the Pay it Foward Co Op. I was on tether hooks until it got approved by the curators. Rejection is not a easy thing to handle even after all these years. I even considered not placing it for curation, and I’m relieved I didn’t listen to the little negative voice in my head

Kia Kaha means stay strong in Moari
