Thanks to everyone for the support.

I'm feeling much better now. I was able to take something off my plate which relieved some stress. Plus, my brother is coming over today to take care of our yard. It's a mess due to all the rain we've had. Finally, my new crafting supplies arrived. I'm trying my hand at needle tatting.

My daughter said she's glad I have DU for support. She called my boomer forum. Lol.

Thanks again.

I love using my hands and keen eye as an illustrator but when it comes to stuff like stitching I go nuts in a nanosecond. My mom and sister love it and my sister tried tatting. It seems like it is a bunch of little knots and you can't correct an error. Is that the kind of needle work you are accepting a challenge with? More power to you!
