It took alot for me to even begin this - to consider and then decide to enter, and then to find an image - nothing seemed to fit. I found a site of sketch drawings by Montana Knox - I chose this one based on a question I asked myself,  " In the end, how did I feel?"

 I didn't have the option of running or hiding; I had to face it head on. My situation tested every fiber of my being- physically, spiritually, and mentally- I was drained.

This sums it up. It's not pretty, it's not cute. It is what is. It's what I was, but not who I am.


Majority is done with a stem stitch, with back stitch here and there.
C+C appreciated. Thanks for looking  Smiley

I like that you asked yourself the question and then found the image to answer it.  It's hard to put an image with a feeling sometimes...thank you for posting.  I love the blue color of the wings....very pretty!

This great.  And even though it stems from a very ugly situation, your piece is quite lovely.  Very nice job!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

It's an amazing depiction and from your story it sounds like you're an amazing woman.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
