A Crafty Day

Hi everyone:) I would just like to say a huge thank you to you all for all the support and lovely comments I have received. I've never had depression before and it was something totally alien to me ..I've felt 'down' but it was never as bad as what I'm going through right now...but I'm slowly getting there..I actually spent a lot of time in my craft room yesterday which I haven't been able to face and have been using some Christmas Woodware stamps the hubster got me off Ebay and I have loved paper piecing them! it was really relaxing. Well I'm off to take Ollie and Woody out for a walk the weather is a bit chilly but the sun is shining . Once again thanks to you all and lots and lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

So glad you're getting there Sue & great that you managed some crafty time! Fab card, love the look of paper piecing but I can't do it for toffee lol....always a right mess of it. Chilly but sunny here too, can't believe how bright it is so I'm staying put in my craft room!
hugs Jo x

This is a beautiful Christmas card, love the colours and the image.

Sue I am so sorry, I wasn't aware (as having not visited in a little while) of you being poorly. It really is the most dreadful thing to go through, been there got the T shirt so to speak. Know there is an ending to it and you seem to be doing the right things to help you. The crafting and out in the sun walking are 2 of the best therapies. If you need a ear or a moan, let me know. xx I'll try not to make it too bad on you LOL.

Hope you enjoyed the walk, it's a beautiful day for it!

Sue, so glad you're doing a little better! I had no idea you were suffering through all that. I know how hard it must be though. They way that crafting is good for the soul and mind so glad you're able to do a little of that now. I love this fun card for Christmas. Really, really like that image too.

Oh bless you! I didn't realise as I haven't been around much, I am so sorry! I am glad you are feeling a bit brighter and able to craft. I suffer from Clinical Depression which is stable most of the time but rears it head on occasion so I really do understand! Your card is fabulous! Take care. Huge hugs. Chris xxxxx

Hi Sue, well you are doing some of the best things to help you recover, creating and walking and having Woody and Ollie is such a bonus, your pets just sense when your not OK. I'm glad you are getting there, it takes time, but be gentle with yourself. Been there myself, kepng you in my thoughts.
Now your card is fabulous, these woodware lage stamps are just wonderful, lovely colours and design.
Big HUGs, Kate x

Lovely fun card. You obviously have some patience paper piecing lol!
Glad you feel up to crafting as it certainly focuses the mind on something other than life.
Keep taking the baby steps.
