Comfort Stitching

Has anyone else ever indulged in comfort stitching? Just picking out a project that you think would be of solace to you during a difficult time and just indulging in stitching rather than obsessively checking the chart versus what's on the fabric? Since I have one very, very ill kitty (whom I will probably lose sooner, rather than later due to probable cancer), I have taken to stitching non-challenging pieces. I do not think that I can handle an overly complicated piece that requires vast amounts of attention. I chose this latest project because it has a quilt like feel to it. I have always loved quilts and find them homey and comforting. And both kitty and myself are sorely in need of comforting at this time. I also chose this one as it does not have either a definite fall or Halloween feel to it. Rather, it feels like both at the same time. Which, in my opinion, is perfect for the month of September. 

Well, at any rate, here is my latest start:

Design: Blessed Be (PPN183)

Fabric Used:  32 count Country Mocha Belfast linen by Zwiegart

Fibers Used:  Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in Noir, 1844 and 4126. Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Carrot Cake and Mango.
Stitcher's Notes: Began Sunday, September 6, 2015. This project is a brand new start that is neither from the Bin O'Shame nor is it from Kit Mountain. Bottom three motifs may be changed at a later time. 

I had best be off. I have some things that I need to take care of before I begin my work day. (Yes, I am working on Labor Day! :)). I hope everyone has a great week!
