Double edged sword

Raw grief can be a sharp, sharp pain, especially if it is accompanied by anger and bitterness. So this TAST stitch was just right. I spat and I stabbed and I stitched.

Here the sword stitch is worked in a circle, all encompassing, pointing inwards, focusing on the source of the pain and guarding the memory of the one that is gone.

How sad for you when you know someone you love is ill, and hurting. The pain and anguish must be terrible. Dont be afraid to let out the tears and it seems stitching is giving you this opportunity.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, and particularly your brother.
