softly, spring comes

FINALLY! A finish!

This was a kit from Shepherd's Bush called Soft Spring...



Despite the shoulder issues, work has been so stressful that I had to stitch, just to stay sane...



there really is something about picking up the needle and running the thread through the fabric that is soothing to my soul. Better than medications, (tried that, gained weight, which just stressed me out more!), and less fattening than a margarita!



Now, if only I could stitch at work, that would be just perfect!

Oh how I wish I could stitch at work. But, then I probably wouldn't be working...sigh. Your new finish is so pretty - just light and soothing...I'm so glad you got to stitch a little bit. I've been missing my stitching too!

That is Beautiful! I'm so happy to read you are back to stitching ~ sorry to read your work is so stressful and the shoulder issues, but oh so happy to see your stitching because I know it's the best therapy no matter what!! In fact, I usually stitch faster when I'm stressed - maybe it will work for you. You run out of stash, just let me know...

Yes, being able to stitch at work would resolve ALOT of problems, lol. Sorry the shoulder is still giving you trouble--but your SB piece is stunning. What great colors--love it! I'm having a SB kit giveaway on my blog if you are interested!
