Today is a new day

Today is a new day

I pulled my finger out today and made myself get dressed! It took me a while as I kept getting out of breath. So today I thought I would try stitching ... Pick it up. And see what happens. I organized my hexie stitching box... Ready to try to sew some more.

I am trying to fight it, I don't want to sink deeper. Today is a new day, small steps are better than no steps.

Thank you 😊

Mine will never be that tidy coughalot, I mainly repair and alter these days, last thing I made was a little rag doll for grand daughter, and a maxi pencil skirt for myself. What Hs is doing is beyond my expertise, I so admire what she does. Maybe we could start a craft thread.

Well that's a lot more than I could do Jude :) A craft thread would be great but I haven't got a clue about crafting! :) x

Hi, Happy Smiles, that's great, much more positive, onwards and upwards for now, I know how hard that can be sometimes, but you're getting in the right frame of mind, and I know you can do it.

Lovely sewing box, so neat and tidy, shows mine up considerably.

Take care,

Christine. XXX

well done each small achievement is a positive and helps so much to rise the spirits .I have learnt to focus on the things I cant do not the things I cant do that I use to . may take more time to do things but once you get it done its so rewarding .

I love making hexies and find it relaxing. We had a very stressful couple of years a while back and I made two single bed quilts, it helped me and got me through a tough time! I am making a child's 'lop sided' log cabin quilt at the moment. I started machine quilting it but have given up and am now finishing it by hand. I much prefer hand sewing 😊 enjoy a peaceful day Happy-smiles. Xris

Wouldn't it be great if we could all meet up for a knit and stitch session, plus a generous slice of delicious cake! Xris x

Very pretty fabrics too. Please send us updates as you progress - as everyone has said and you are doing one small step, another small step... but you have done two - getting dressed and getting your sewing box photographed for us.

Not a small step really but a big one, not only have you made a start but you are making plans too! Good for you.

What a gorgeous box. Think of your life as one of your quilts, for each little bit done, it gets better and better. :-)
