Fun in my fabric world....

Stress release stitching!

A busy weekend had a big finale!
My dear Mum fell in the garden yesterday & badly broke her ankle.
A couple of screws & a plate & she is on the mend, but we have a long road ahead.
I am hoping she & dad will come to stay with me for a while, she will be non weight bearing for 6-8 wks & I cannot see them managing at home through this.
Mum is keen to come but dad is lacking insight as to what this means...
mum now needs care to get her back to mobility.
Stormy waters ahead!


So, feeling quite stressed over this & some other family dramas, what do you do?
SEW!

I had this jelly roll quilt cut out...& today I put the bulk of the top together..it just needs borders.

Quite soothing to be repetitively sewing...calming colours...looks good!
Through life's ups & downs,sewing can be a good relief!
Hope all is well in your world

The quilt looks lovely, cna't wait to see the borders on it.
Your poor mum, I hope things work out for the best for her and your dad; and that your stress is reduced. Sewing is a wonderful way to distract yourself from worries.
