A quiet place is a place to reminisce, to reflect, to celebrate the joys and to find solace in the losses.

It can be found in many places; within a garden, by a river, but most of all within oneself. To lose oneself in creating something of beauty is to find a quiet place.

My New Project

Last Saturday I went to the Guild's stitching afternoon and this tapestry, plus all the wool, was donated to whomever wanted to do it. 

I fell in love with it. What isn't there to to like? A Japanese garden, a swan, a serene figure? Well there's tent stitch of course! I'd be bored to tears before I finished the sky. Then I was persuaded it could be done in textured needlepoint stitch. Ooh, that could be fun. So I've started with the sunrise using twill and encroaching gobelin. So far it looks good. I think I best do some work on the bamboo on the left before I go much further and I'm not sure what stitch to use. Think I need some advice from my friends at the guild.
