therapy of stitching

I met a lovely lady yesterday who came to my home studio. She hasnt had a wonderful life and has struggled through much of it battling things many of us have just not had to deal with. However, she has found stitching and has finally found happiness and passion in it. It has given her confidence that she can achieve and she is a whole person of goodness and strength. This reinforced my belief that stitching and the stitching community is therapeautic and all my work is worth it if it helps just one person to live a happier life...

on that note, my Stitching in the valley has been postponed to the 28th October. This is a day of stitching, sharing, caring and working together as women to make a difference to our lives and others.

stitch on girls..... and pass your passion to many

hugs
Helen

HI Robyn, wow you have had a big move, I thought Townsville to Hobart was as big as we could get here in Aust. I read your blog and wonderful to see you have delved into the land of prim, will sift through some or your older posts when I get the chance to see your 'new life' over there... and yes, singing with the Mormon Tab choir was quite an experience I will never forget... hugs, Helen
