Well as promised here is the latest update photo of my Flock stitching. It really is a joy to stitch. I love the colours the shape of the birds and leaves and just the whole design.
Sorry about the hoop marks.
I am now about to stitch something for my DH for Valentines Day. Its called 'I will Love you' by Annie Beez Folk Art. A nice small simple design.
The thing is that I am so thankfully lucky with, is that my family and my friends all love my stitching, so I am so happy to spend my time, leaving this stitching legacy of mine. I hope that when time has passed on that my stitching will allow people to reflect on what has been and what was.
It works well on all fronts, as I am in such a positive headspace at the moment. Stitching is truly therapeutic. I am losing a bit of speech/thinking coordination and the balance is still a bit wobbly, but I am getting there with the stitching. Also still having to rest and get the hip mended. Which can only be done with rest.
As well as stitching that has kept busy, I have also done painting and other craft work. I painted and made this name plaque for my daughter, in her favourite colours.
As far as I am concerned, crafting and hobbies are good for the soul...and definately good therapy when life throws you a curve ball. I am sure as you are all fantastic crafters you would have to agree.
