I thought this was such a neat post. Cute Embroidery and my sewing machine got me through the most difficult and challenging time in my life (physically) after a car wreck threatened to permanently cripple me.

I'm so glad you not only survived but was able to heal and walk again. Now I understand why I do as well as I do. I love to create. To the point that when I spent a year recovering from a very serious bout of vertigo, I did the only activity I could do. I hand embroidered a queen sized quilt. It helped to keep me sane while I was virtually housebound.

I understand! It's always nice to be justified in your belief.

Very true! Glad the craft helped heal you.. I know it has healed a lot of us going through difficult times.

Well, I for one am so glad it got you through your difficult and trying time when you had that accident. I think having a craft or something we love to do with our time is such a great endorphin. God bless you Jerrilyn, Love Chris

Love it. No need to do exercise. I am doing all that I can for my body. Ha, ha

I like the way you think! :-)

Then the pain tells me to exercise, sometimes in the middle of the night! Blah! That darn bursitis!
