Its hard to believe that the Made with Love quilt (original design by Wildcraft Farm) had come to a standstill for that long – but yes, my last post was Block #8, in October 2012!
Today I finally completed Block #9. The stitched word on the original pattern was ‘Embrace’; I have replaced it with ‘Forgiveness’. A lot of water has gone under the bridge since October, including events and difficult relationships which are still challenging me to forgive, let go and move on. Taking the time to be creative certainly helps with this process, bringing hope and peace to replace the discouragement and anxiety I was feeling.
