Crafting has really gotten me through some hard times.
A few winters ago, I was going through a divorce and many other changes in my life, and I passed a lot of time sitting in the basement with my dogs, crocheting tons and tons of granny squares. I found the predictable circular patterns of the crochet comforting and the yarn warm and soothing to touch. After that winter, I was left with all those squares and I put them together into what I call my Divorce Afghan.
When I look at it, I think about corny (but true) ideas like learning from adversity, being proud of personal growth, and the importance of keeping my sense of humor when things get tough.
I continue to count on crafts to serve as a stress reliever, pacifier, escape, and many other things----how about you? Has crafting ever saved your sanity, too?
