Stiching to Save my Sanity

A very good friend of mine is a stitching goddess! Sparks fly as her needle moves at lightening speed, and OMG! the beauty of her work can be breath- taking! As all things go yes I can stitch but no where near to what she can do, I just want to make myself perfectly clear on this fact!
And as I said in my eariler post, stress levels were at melt down mode and she is such a friend that would listen and let me escape for a moment or two all the craziness in just a simple phone call between friends. After my normal whin and bitch about my crew, we would always get to the part of telling each other what all we were working on. In these conversations she always spoke about her stitching with such passion to the point I would envy her talent. Now remember I am stitch too.
I was out on a mission the other weekend searching for some scrapbooking supplies and I ran across this cross stitch kit. Long story short the light bulb went off and the kit came home with me! Just maybe this would be the answer to some alone time for me. I know it was wishing big but what the heck I was going to give it a shot! Now here is a fact about me that you just might not know. When I get an idea I think BIG! Just remember that. LOL
After a good 8 to 10 yrs of not touching a needle or hoop here is the kit that I bought.

And here is what I have gotten done after a little over a week of stitching!

Being brave enough to post this I can assure you that my "stitching goddess" friend is laughing so hard that she is going to need some Depends but what can I say these few stitches are saving my sanity!


  1. What a gorgeous project! You will have such fun working on this. Stitching always de-stresses me!

  2. The project is beautiful - good luck with it. I started a "Family Tree" years ago when my kids were still home. I have 5 grandkids now. Not sure the canvas is big enough for the family anymore - LOL I'm sure yours will be finished much quicker. Maybe I should get mine out and finish it....
