Marie, Winter Angel.

Hello everyone !

Here is my work !


Before :

Now :
I just want to share one feeling I had many times this past week.
I was thinking "if only I had finished the first raw"... In fact, I was really looking forward to finish the first raw, I don't know why... meaby to see the rose garden growing, or just for the satisfaction of a finished raw... but until it happens, I have some work to do yet...
So I tried to canalize my impatience with this sentence from Lao Tsu who said : "A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving". This still helps me to take advantage of my HAED journey... I think that we must savour every stitch we do... because it's a priceless wonderful adventure.

To everyone, have a beautiful week...
I'm still thinking of each one of you,
Thank you so much.... !

Marie.

Marie I just love reading your posts of how your stitching week has been. I see there are 2 stars in your beautiful sky now. That saying is soooo true. I love the journey of stitching large pieces and am quite sad to come to the end of the journey. But looking back on those finished pieces you recall your journey.

I can answer you that
"patience is a virtue acquired through patience"

What a good sentence for cross stitching isn't it!!
