(Cross Stitching) Chicken Soup for the Soul

I've been bummed the last couple of days because today my FH and I were supposed to be married, however, due to plain ole economics, it just wasn't feasible. We opted instead to get married next year, and having a bit of a bigger wedding than originally planned, however, it still doesn't mean that I'm not bummed about it not happening.

At any rate, the past 2 days, I've turned to stitching to keep me busy. I turned to a specific designer, in this case, SanMan Originals. I have been a member of Sandy's board since early 2003, if not before. There is just something comforting and familiar about her designs, so I've reached for her designs to help pull me out of my minor funk. Here is the fruits of my labors.

(Please note that the usual disclaimers, provisos, and quid pro quos apply: Not for resale, Member Only patterns.)

Secret Shop 'Autumn Leaves'. 28 ct natural Pearl Linen, various cotton and silk flosses.

October 2008 SMO newsletter gift. 28 ct natural Pearl Linen, various cotton and silk flosses.

So, who is the designer or design that you turn to in order to feel better?
