Just Keep Swimming

Almost 2 years ago I was in a car accident, and I have struggled to find my way back to the needle ever since. Like many, I took solace in my hobby, and lost a valuable coping mechanism in a matter of moments. Gone was the ability to spend hours immersed in thought as I engaged in a visual and tactile feast of fibers and fabrics. Every few months I would try to stitch, and after a few meager crosses I would give in to the pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders. This project is the product of such attempts.

The fabric truly is the star of the show!

  1. I love this one! I am so sorry to hear that your car accident is having an effect still... but they do say slow and steady wins the race so hopefully each day you will get a bit more done on this gorgeous design and see some great progress :o) Love the fabric!
