Stitching therapy....

Feeling a bit lost...I think it's time to get back to some stitching therapy.
Time heals and getting lost in my sewing again may help to pass that time....
Not sure what I want to work on....Harlequin pinned and sitting by SS may be just what I need..
...making some more periwinkles in the evening....
..still need to add borders and whatever to this pretty Dancing Nine Patch..
...Maybe finish off this little table topper, only needs quilting and binding...
If it wasn't so hot...over 43 degrees Celsius yesterday.
 I would get back to hand-quilting my lovely Vintage Dresden...
 
Thank you to those who sent comforting private emails and comments..
From my heart  ...♥

  8. Julia, I"ve been thinking of you every since I read of your loss. Be sure to be kind to yourself as you adjust to your new life. Perhaps you could come visit me and teach me how to use this darn Sweet 16! I'm getting ready to throw it out the window, but it's too heavy to throw very far. Hugs and prayers . . .

  14. 43deg, yikkes, I wouldn't be worrying about stitching, I'd be flat out on my back with that heat. Could not handle that at all.
    It's so hard to carry on in a type ff normality after such a huge event in your life but yes, I think going back to your stitching will probably soothe you because you enjoy it so much. It will allow you time to breathe and sit in peace. Hugs.

  24. Oh my dear, Julia! I am just now catching up on blog-reading (after having a medical procedure) and am so dismayed to learn of your husband's passing. I am so, so sorry, my friend. I know you've been managing alone for quite some time, but I'm sure this feels different now. Please know I am adding you to my prayer list. May God fill you with peace and the favor of His strength. Quilting will be good therapy, as will the support of the many friends you have. Bless you.

  32. Dear Julia,
    I didn't realise Reno had passed away until I read all these comments. Sad loss for you and your family, but he is in a better place now, and you will have peace of mind as you come to terms with your loss.
