Progress

Standard

Yesterday I escaped the cottage confines and went shopping. Not real shopping just picking up click and collect stuff in Marks and Spencer. I need to get better quickly if only to stop me doing so much shopping on line!

Hubs drove and I used both crutches. Around the home I’m not using crutches now but trying to walk tall and proud! ( I need to straighten up) I can’t wait to walk out in our local countryside properly. One step at a time. So for now I’m just putting one foot in front of the other.

Crafts as Therapy

Standard

I mentioned that I am a great believer in the power of positivity but I also believe in “helping yourself”.

One method of self help is to use hobbies as a form of therapy and relaxation. As I mentioned on an earlier blog I have struggled to pick up any of my planned hobby projects.One craft that I have been bumbling along with is one ( of many) knitting projects. I am knitting squares from re-used yarn, into a blanket ( or Afghan). The yarn was originally knitted into a sweater but turned out as big as a marquee so was unravelled and is now in a new life as a throw.

I will assemble them using a contrast yarn and crochet. I also plan to back the finished throw with micro fleece for cozy snuggles. Goodness knows when it will be finished but I will let you know!

I am collecting brooches, broken or not, with a view to making a collage. Here is one that I found on Pinterest
