Moments to Change

One Day or Day One!?

It was on holiday in Mallorca, with my family, I had no idea, in that moment, that my life would change forever. Or even more surprisingly, what would help change it.

I was in a beautiful place with my family, sitting in the sunshine and I had a realisation I was the unhappiest I had ever been. An unshakable feeling down to the very last cell in my body that I had to change my path, and try to find calm in my life. I had no idea, in that moment, that my life would change forever. Or even more surprisingly, what would help change it.

It was 2015, and there was a group of us, away and enjoying the sunshine. I was having a hard time switching off from my very stressful job. I couldn’t relax and kept thinking about work. I was frustrated!! My work life balance, was not working. With two young children, it was a very difficult time. 

One day, my lovely friend Fran, showed me how to cross stitch and had a pattern which was really appropriate for the time and suited my state of mind. The pattern was a little fox with the words: For Fox Sake. I sat quietly on the sofa; in the hammock; by the pool and on the beach. Completely focused on my fox. Stabbing the material seemed to release some aggression; zoning out gave me space to think and making something sparked my creativity.

It brought back a part of me, I had not used since before having children. I framed and hung it on the wall in my dining room, so I see it everyday and remember life can be simple. Since then I still craft and share ideas with Fran, we have stitching days and quiet time on holiday. It’s great to stitch with a friend, as you can sit in silence or chat about anything.

I have design and sell my own patterns. If I pass on inspiration to other people, produce things to create happiness and share calm, then Little Dot Loves will be a success.

My journey is about simplifying headspace; unlocking creativity and creating happiness. What’s yours??
