Lace has been a wonderful distraction and comfort this last week.  My father died suddenly.  The whole clan came together and we got things done, but I found that I needed quiet time in order to deal with my loss. DH made sure I got it (and that I ate). He's a saint!

As I found moments here and there I would pull out my tatting or if at home I would sit and work at my pillow.  I was surprised at how much a comfort I felt in the simple act of moving pairs back and forth or the flow of a double stitch.

I am even more grateful now for the lovely ladies in my local lace guild and online that have taught me to make lace and that  encourage me as a newcomer to the art.  Thank you all so much.

It is good to read how lace making has helped you. It is a wonderful way of slowing down in the fast paced lives we lead and by slowing down and being still there is the chance of healing. May God bless you.

Thanks God we have the consolation of our skilled hands to bring peace to our minds and hearts. A sisterhood hug, Robin. I hope that you understand my feeling despite English is not my native language. Greetings from Mexico.

Oh, my heart goes out to you.  You sound like you are taking time to find the peace in his passing. Blessings on your DH for taking such good care of you.  We'll be here when you get back.  Take it easy.
