This is looking so beautiful! I'm glad you are finding working on it so calming.
As you know, Lynne, I knit. However, the calming effect is the same.I like to put on gospel music while I knit: the combination of the music and the activity are very calming and restful.
Lor, I love to knit too and I think it is so soothing. I know you're going through some tough times also so I'm glad to hear it's helping you.
