Last week Aleteia, an on-line magazine I read, had an article about reasons to do traditional patchwork. It talked about many ways that it can improve your life.
The five reasons really resonated with me. I’ve needlepointed for almost fifty years, since I wasn’t even 14. It’s provided me solace in my most difficult times. It’s provided mediatative relaxation when I’m troubled and stressed. It’s kept me from being frustrated and angry. It’s kept me from boredom and fueled my creativity/ And it’s allowed me to make so many things for myself and my family. These things commemorate events and items that are special to us and add beauty to our lives.
How has needlepoint improved your life?
