Embroidery


Just emailed the Everydaymatters yahoo group about some inspiration for my emboidery. I was wondering if anyone knew of some good websites, yahoo groups, etc that can inpsire me the way EDM does.
I've decided to keep my other blog.... A prayerful life for my drawings and to use this blog to include my other art work....collage, embroidery, photography, etc.
My mood has been good now for over 7 weeks...it's just so amazing. I believe it is the omega 3 capsules I am taking. There is a lot of good evidence for it on the internet. The psychiatrist is rather sceptical about it which is disappointing as I am so pleased about how I am going. I haven't been this well since I was 15 years old.
I've joined in a wonderful challenge for my art work called Everyday in May....participators are challenged to do something creative every day in May. At first I didn't think I could do it as I usually only do my drawings once a week. I mentioned to EDM that I was knitting and someone pointed out that knitting is creative....silly me...I knit most days.
I have set up the dining table with my collages, drawing and water colors and embroidery and I am doing a little bit each day. I have tried this in the past and I usually go into a quiet, down time and I don't do any art or creative work. Most people have advised me to go with the flow but I would love to be able to keep my creativity going during my quieter moods.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia

I am glad that you are feeling so well.

I have suddenly realised that I have not been taking some of my supplements - including the omegas. That may have a lot to do with my mood!

*hug* Thank you!

Ah, Susan! I am so thrilled to have discovered your two blogs and see how creative you are these days! When I last saw you about a year ago, you made me macaroons - and that was a huge effort for you then, I know. You have made my day today. I think you are on the right track with the gratitude journal. I try to start and end every day reflecting on what I am grateful for and it makes a marked difference to my quality of life.
