Stitching in a mad frenzy does produce results - the trouble I find, is knowing where to stop. I had quite a few ideas for adding other bits but had to draw the line somewhere. The end work is a pair of felted dolls entitled "Beneath The Sea".
Have had a very strange week - but fortunately several hours work in the garden today - weeding and planning mainly, have yielded a mind that feels more calm this evening.
I have never tried meditation or retreats to relax - I find a spade in the garden and sweeping are very therapeutic! That is not to say I won't try other remedies - just never seem to find a pocket of time to do them.
