It has been a crazy couple of weeks around here. My husband has decided to take a new job in Texas. It has been a goal of ours to move closer to family as we get closer to retirement. But, even though we have moved several times over the years it is always stressful facing a move. I finally sat down yesterday at the hoop and finished hand quilting block # 20 of Baltimore Garden. The final five blocks have the crosshatching marked. So this am, I will be tracing my random flowers and leaves on the last five blocks and I will be ready to sit and stitch.
I am so looking forward to my slow stitching today. The sound of the rain drops or the wall clock ticking in the background help me to concentrate on the needle in hand, to free the mind from troubled or chaotic thoughts. We all need time away from reality, a time to rest our minds. I look forward to each Sunday when Kathy reminds us it's time for Slow Stitching Sunday.
