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.
