Cross-stitch is one of my hobbies when I can find the time to sit down and do some sewing. This sampler was in a box in our basement and I dug it out and hung it on the wall. I actually stitched the date on it upon completion. As you see, that was in 2001.
It started me thinking about life and what had happened in the years since I worked this design. I used to buy cross-stitch kits on my visits home, though it is some years since I've done so, as I have quite a collection of unfinished kits and some still to be started.
I also thought about the direction that my life has taken in the last thirteen years. There have been a lot of hiccoughs along the way. I still don't feel like I'm heading in the right direction, but I don't know how to get where I want to be.
A blogging friend gave me some advice recently and that was to ask the universe for help. I know that it worked for her and she found her way home. I'm willing to give it a try and hope that in time, it may lead me safely home too. My only hope is that this will be sooner rather than later.
