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.
