Stitching For Therapy
Lately I have found hand-stitching to have a therapeutic effect on me. Just the quiet repetition of stitches leaves my mind free to ponder, wonder and enjoy the moment.
I used to embroider - that was years ago now - and I have done cross-stitching and sewing clothes for the kids, but nothing beats the feeling I had yesterday while I was bunging together a few bits of felt to make a 'First Aid Kit'.
Sewing on scrapbooking layouts is therapy too, but very difficult in comparison to sewing fabric. I felt rejuvenated, excited and thoroughly mellowed out when I finished this art journal felt goodies bag.
Orders will not be taken!
