As promised, my update on Wallace

I found my self hooking like a mad women when I happened to look at the time and it was 1:00 am. Yep, I was so into Sweet Wallace and watching a good movie when I glanced up at the clock as saw 1:00 am. My oh my, time to go to sleep but I did make some head way and I have found how much easier it is when you are working on a pattern you enjoy. Here is my updated pic of William Wallace. I feel good about it so far and feel like I am making good head way. I do wish I had some white or cream colored wool though. I feel like I am cheating using yarn. Oh well, I like it never the less and I am sure that Wallace doesn't mind. I feel like I am slowly giving him Life again.  It makes me smile and that is what is so healthy about doing this type of work. It is good therapy.
I did a painting of my Mother when she passed and it was the best thing for me. I gave the painting to my brother. I wonder what he did with it. I painted her in a garden sitting on a white bench with her little dog among  all her flowers with a broad brimmed sun hat. It made me smile too.
I think that if you are having a difficult time dealing with the passing of a dear friend or family member be it human or furry friends, doing something creative to bring some joy and a smile is good to an otherwise,  sad time. It is very good therapy.
Try it next time you are feeling a bit down. Be creative. It is good for the Inner Soul.
