Twyla on Tuesday

Hello dear friends.
I have been thinking of all the victims of the
recent tornado outbreak in the southern United States.
Here in Missouri we have had much flooding and people
loosing their homes.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you who
are dealing with loss from these situations.




I have heard recently that what I always knew
was true, that knitting and crocheting was great
for your health!  During times of stress in my own life, I have
reached for my knitting needles and the rhythmic
movements of the needles and the soothing feel of the
yarn slipping through my fingers have transported me
beyond the trouble.
It can lower your blood pressure and improve your
memory, too!




I recently heard a saying that has stuck in my mind.
'Nice is the new black'
Isn't that great?!  I love it!  I'm not sure
who said it first, but it sure is a great thought. 

It is my wish for everyone to have a
week full of happy days!
Twyla

Thanks Twyla for the comments. I sooth myself cutting out small things for cards. I need to reestablish my crocheting skills. I want to make little buttons loops like my Mom used to do, shouldn't be that hard. Nan

I've finally come to the end of sorting my flat out which now means I can start relaxing with some knitting!

Everyone needs a hobby to get them back to a better place. We don't have trouble finding one, do we?

So many things going on in the world right now, aren't there? So much and so many to remember in our prayers...

Creating things really does help keep us "calm and carry on", as the saying goes...so important these days!

I just love that vintage image, Twyla...would love to use that one sometime, if you don't mind! So calming and lovely...

Wishing you a beautiful day, dear friend...
