A New Beginning

Not sure where to begin here....the last few months I've been dealing with a bout of depression. Usually it passes fairly quickly, but this time it just seemed to hang on. I have no pics to show this time, I lost my desire to do any stitching or crafting of any type but I'm slowly coming back into my groove. I have given my yahoo group to one of my mods and have stepped down as "list mom"...I'm a bit sad, but I'm also looking forward to a new beginning. I didn't like where the group has been going the last few months and I've been trying to figure out why. Then I realized maybe it's because it's so focused on just one thing...cross stitch. I love all kinds of crafts, not just stitching. So after thinking long and hard about how I've been feeling I decided to start a new group. It's called KraftersKorner and it's not just about's about whatever is calling you at the moment. Maybe it's quilting or beading or scrapbooking...doesn't matter, it's about what we are creating. All those creations are a part of us and should be represented. I would like to take this moment and invite my friends to join me in this new endeavor. The group can be found here: I hope to see you all there!


  1. Hi..Added myself to your new group this morning! Hope you are doing better tho! I deal with depression at times too so understand what you live with day by day. Good luck with everything!

  2. I added myself to the group today also. I am hugging you, dear friend until you get your "groove" back.

  3. You go girl. Depression is hard and you can never tell how long a "relapse" will last. I am glad to be a member of your new group. I am a cross stitcher and a quilter, and a beader, a cook, and all other kinds of crafty things. I look forward to sharing
