A peaceful time...

The peacefulness of the Easter period is a lovely thing...time to sit & chat...reflect...rest...enjoy each others company...a visit from a dear friend...no pressure ( at least at our home) to be rushing about. Our daughter is home for a few days, our son recovering well...a few tasks to be done at home, but nothing too pressing. It is a good time to sit with DH on our back deck, discuss whether the clouds look like rain or not and have a cup of tea. Nice if life was always as relaxed as this!



Our daughter began cross stitching recently...thought it might help when she needs some down time from her heavy uni load. She is enjoying creating samplers...they look great...she is finding they are a good way to relax. I think that I love the way I "zone" out when I am doing my hand work, be it applique, embroidery or cross stitch. Stitching most days definitely helps to keep me a nicer person to live with. Blackbird Designs recently talked of the way stitching helps to relieve stress, bringing calmness & quiet to our lives...I would have to agree!


I hope that your Easter is a happy one, that you are enjoying a relaxing & reflective time...

I really love your bird house and what a lovely view. I also find it relaxing to sit and stitch and zone out for awhile. But the time goes so fast and I forget to go to bed. A bit of a trap

Usually when I sit and start stitching I just "chill out", but not this weekend....am trying to catch up on projects that have popped way over their deadlines...so I'm feeling a bit rushed. Have some "me time" earmarked for around June, so will chill out then. Enjoy your peaceful days.
Hugs..Judith
