By Request (sort of)

Still no stitching. I can't find a comfortable position to sit and stitch. Today is the first day my back hasn't been screaming all day long, though the pain is still high just not at agony levels.

My daughter (Yoshimara-Muse as she shows up on blogger) commented on my last post that her favorite piece of mine is the teddy bear on the china cabinet that I stitched for my biological mother. So I figured I would pop a pic up, since I still have no new progress.

This was my first ever cross stitch. Aurie (my birth-mother) had chosen it and I agreed to stitch it for her. I finished is a couple months before she passed away but was unable to go visit her due to a high risk pregnancy (my son in 1996) that wouldn't let me travel. I had to restart this piece 2 oir 3 times because I kept messing up the bear and there were just too many stitches to pull it all out. It was easier to just get new fabric and start over. On the third try I did the bear first and when I got it right I did the rest. This pic was taken with a polariod instant camera and then scanned in, so it is a horrible picture. The piece was buried with my mother, layed accross her chest with her hands folded atop it. I am sure she saw it and loved it.


  1. Now I have read through your blog. I hope you will get better soon. I'll slip in at times to see if there are any new updates. I mean if you've written something. Keep that needle moving! I am glad it helps you to fight against depression. Needlework can work wonders, when one's mind is complete mess.

  2. Thank you Mystery Knitter. I looked at your blog and really enjoyed it. Your stitching is gorgeous and well done from what I could see. You do a good job!

    Needlework is very helpful for both my depression and chronic pain. It helps me to relax, to distract myself from the pain (which helps to control it even though I still hurt), and it makes me feel good as well. Definitely a good thing all around. :)
