Being thankful November SBQ

When was I most thankful for being able to stitch. Hmmm, the death of my mom comes to mind. Her death was completely unexpected and it hit me hard. Very hard. I was absolutely devastated. But being the oldest I had to function and get the things organised that you are required to do at a time like this. I can tell you, my stitching kept me sane. I don't know what I would have done or how I could have survived without stitching. It helped me to wind down and relax after the horrible job of cleaning out her apartment which made me feel like a grave robber. It also gave me comfort because my mother always loved my stitching and somehow I felt close to her although she is not here anymore.


  1. Hi, I just came upon your blog. And I feel that I want to share this with you: my father died two months ago unexpectedly. And like you, stitching helps me to keep me sane. I used to sit stitching by my father as he would be watching tv, and once in a while, he will look at my work. They were moments I can't forget. So, thank you to share your memories with us, it helps me a lot. Thanks

  3. You are so right! I share this experience. In 2009 our youngest son died of cancer. In all the difficult time my stitching helped me to survive.
    And also today I can't imagine to be without my thread and my needle :)
