Sewing as an antidepressent


To keep myself from being immersed in self pity and sadness, I've been sewing and cleaning alot. Here is my latest completed quilt project and I'm all ready half done with another! Last time I made a baby quilt for a friend's baby, I didn't finish it until her baby was 2 years old. It helps that this onc is machine quilted.
I like the look of pieced backs, which turned out perfect because while sewing this, I misplaced some blocks, had to make more, then found the original blocks in my messy sewing area! I was able to use those extra blocks on the back. :-)

I couldn't agree more about sewing being an anti-depressant. You should try painting something. Yesterday I painted my bathroom, and felt so much better afterwords. Love the quilt!

So lovely.....I am trying to look at the detail of your quilting...it looks amazing. Don't you just love a finished quilt. I have about three in the works right now, and my ability to accomplish much of anything is about zero while I wait for this new little baby.
