Results of Theraputic Stitching

  (Note: some links on this post have been lost after Blogger update).

Last night, very late, I finished my Celtic Lady. While working on her, I learned to do beading - her pattern calls for so many beads her dress reminded me of a pin cushion for a while... I've enjoyed watching the design come through on the fabric and the colors blend together... Working out little mistakes (and big miscounts)...Stitching her was like going away into another world, a place where everything is by the rules and everything makes sense. And things come out beautiful.

Anyway,back to the real world. The good news about finishing this project is - that I could do it, which also means - I can concentrate again. Hooray, my mind no longer feels like soupy mush, there is substance there somewhere again...

Now that she is finished, I'll just have to frame her... And think about what to stitch next.

  1. Hi Katya

    Have just looked at this on the Celtic Lady blog and blog hopped to your blog... it was sad to read
    that you had been attacked, how awful for you. I hope it all gets sorted out.
    I shall get my Summer Celtic Lady out today because I have neglected her, too much on the go and I love gardening so that takes my time.
    I am signing up to follow your blog, you write such a lot and analyse everything, it makes it so interesting to read. But I think you are lonely as you don't mention friends...I think I take too much for granted and am grateful for the fact that now retired I can stitch to my hearts content!
    Happy Stitching.
