Janice’s Story

janices-storyJanice tells us how craft helped her after she was widowed.

I was suddenly out-of-the-blue widowed three and a half years ago and cross stitch was my saviour in the early days when I couldn’t concentrate on anything else and found whilst stitching my mind didn’t wander so much in my grief. Today it helps enormously with my loneliness and, as a bonus, I get a lovely end result.

You can get help and advice on bereavement on the Mind website here.

You can read more stories of how craft has helped people’s mental health every day this month. You can see more here.
