ALL AT SEA
I came across this review of a new book THREADS by Julia Blackburn, Jonathan Cape, that made me want to get it out of my library for the amazing story and illustrations done by a sea-faring mental patient who found sewing so therapeutic. I myself have always found using my hands and creating something give me peace and happiness in a way that trying to use my brain does not always do! And there is always the added benefit if it is successful, that you have made something physical which you can keep or pass on for the pleasure of someone else.
