I know it's only been 2 days since my last blog, but I had a weird experience last night and as it had to do with cross stitching I thought I would share.
I went to bed around 3am as I was still stuck in nightshift mode and couldn't sleep. I was working on Spring to Life (finished page 5 - YAY!) prior to this and thinking how slow the progress on her was and started to worry that there is a chance I may not see alot of my projects completed.
|Page 5 - done and done with a little start on page 2!|
So with this thought I lay my head down to sleep. Seconds later I was being fiercely embraced by an unseen being. It was soothing at first but then it became uncomfortable as I couldn't move and I started to fret, then I felt extremely light like I was being lifted but still held firm.
My first thought (and this is how I am a certifiable lunatic) was OMG I'm dead and now I won't get to finish Faces of Faery 88 by the next craft show to show the blokes from the Sewitall store and they will think I lied to them and Mrs. D has won the Golden Wood cross stitch competition and I won't even get to enjoy the seafood lunch as the loser!
So I struggled against what I thought was the Angel of Death - and then the grip got even tighter if that were at all possible. Next with no words spoken I felt this serene feeling come over me and I was elated as somehow I knew that I was going to finish all my cross stitches. I believe it was my Guardian Angel reassuring me that he was on the job and not to fear leaving UFO's before my timely end. When I was released there was no waking up period. I was awake still.
Sooooooo I got out of bed and headed to HAED and bought 5 more charts!!!!
|Guardian Angel - L.A Williams|
OMG!! It was meant to be. I searched on guardian angel and out of the 4 angels that appeared this just struck a massive chord in me. It was perfect and exactly how I envisoned him. A little scary but strong and protective, with massive wings to either shield you or fly you away from harm. So beautiful. So this was the first chart I bought as a tribute to my angel.
Next was "The dreamer" by Julie Fain. I searched on dream and out of the 100 over charts this one appealed the most. I always wanted one of her charts but could never decide, but after my experience the choice was easy!
I haven't bought a Selina Fenech for a while and I remembered I had purchased a chart from her ages ago called "The guardian" so was going to leave it at that but I've had this chart "Winged things" in my WL for ages so decided to buy it. I liked the dragon and the girl theme and that it seemed like a companion to her so decided to keep with the theme and bought it too. Here also is the chart "Guardian" which was one of my earlier purchases from HAED 3 or so years ago. It would seem I have always had this guardian angel wahoo going on!
The next 2 charts I bought have storm themes. I love love love storms and have alot of stormy charts. I bought these 2 charts because I have always thought that my last day on earth was going to be a stormy one and I mean in the weather sense. LOL! So I have an affinity with storms! So in light of the theme I had going on I bought these 2 beauties!
|Storm Runes - Nene Thomas|
|Cello Storm - Jasmine Becket-Griffith|
So there you go. Judge for yourself. I either need to be committed or I had a visit from a ethereal being who took the time to reassure me that it was okay to buy more charts as I am going to be around for a while. However I'm not going to push my luck as my angel didn't mention immortality so therefore I won't be buying anymore charts -- for like ages and ages anyway!
Thanx for reading if you still are and haven't unfollowed me or left in that way people do when they come across a loony - you know the slow backing away and trying to maintain eye contact until it's deemed safe to run away!
Wishing a happy and safe Easter to you and all your loved ones. Eats lots of chocolate and enjoy the break. I will be working most of Easter but I will be taking my cross stitch in with me so all good!!
Take care stunners
