I can’t say I’ll miss this stitching project when it is finished.
It had a negative vibe right from the start when I screwed up the sketching and the mouth looked like something from badplasticsurgery.com. Can’t wait to move on, especially as my birthday stash included a bunch of blank cotton tote bags.
I'm originally from Liverpool and worked as a national magazine journalist for more than 30 years before suffering a stroke at age 53. I started blogging as part of a neuro-rehabilitation programme and wrote the very first entries with one finger of my disabled left hand. Later, art became another therapy for me at Headway East London's Submit To Love studios. I blog regularly and volunteer as a teaching assistant, coaching schoolchildren in aspects of journalism.
