Snowflakes and ladderstitches

Dear all

This weekend I really needed to relax and the best help for me was to do small embroideries.When I feel unhappy I use embroidery as a "self-therapy" and it's not expensive and maybee it results in a little gift to someone.Crises can develope or make you feel bitterness.When you grow older every day is worth so much you can't spend so many days being"angry or bitter".May war against bitterness is full of embroderies.
In every stitch I put in memories and hopefully I can get a pattern of the chaos.The small square maybee I use for a pincushion.The biscornu has got some stitches and beads and I hope I'm going to do it less ugly and more "happy".

Oh, that is so true, Ulla. I used to crochet for self-therapy too...Now, when I'm sad or happy, I crochet ;)
Your pincushion embroidery is lovely!

Ulla said...

Thank you Mimi
We are so happy to have something that gives us a special dimension of the life.
Have a nice weekend.I'm going to Stockholm this weekend.

Tack snälla Ulla för dina fina ord i min blogg, de värmde!
Ja det är ett bra sätt att må bra ller att inte känna det onda, ledsna eller stressiga vad det nu kan vara; att brodera eller skapa på annat sätt! När jag tittar på mina broderier kan jag oftast komma ihåg vad jag kände, hur jag mådde osv Man syr in sina tankar i stygnen. Därför är det så skönt att handarbeta!

Ulla said...

Skapandet är en gåva till människan.
Att gå kurs ger oss nya redskap och jag följer med stort intresse den du går.
Tack Gunnel för besöket och de fina orden.En ny dag med nya möjligheter gryr.

Oh, I agree! I need to relax with stitching sometimes. The worst thing of all is when a stitchign project is so difficult that it becomes a stressor in itself! I did some easy cross stitch last night to just calm down and enjoy life again!=)

Dear Lizzie

I agree some of our embroideries take a lot of tíme and you perhaps have not so much time.As I work fulltime I have great problems because I find thousands of ideas every week.
Thanks for visiting me
Wellcome back
