    Unfortunately for my wallet, buying fabric I love brings me the most joy.
    Cutting is a source of zen-like comfort (though not for my wrist).

    I can relax and enjoy all the processes it takes to complete a quilt in my sewing area. It is one of the most peaceful things I do-QUILT!! My mind is always on the go, creating a block or a quilt. And, many times, I don't have any idea what I'll do with it when it's completed. I'm thankful to have an outlet that is so fun and rewarding.

    I didn't realize just how much I enjoyed and how it settled my nerves until recently. We are moving so I packed my stash and took my machines in for service last week. I will be so glad to get moved and unpacked so I can start sewing again. I will actually have a room for sewing instead of sharing the living room at our current house.

    Not only does every aspect of quilting bring me comfort, I actually seem to go into withdrawels if I don't do something quilting related for several days in a row.

    I hand quilt and yes I love it. It is very relaxing to me. Especially after a stressful day or if I can't sleep.

    For me it's one of the best threpeutic things I can do. Or a big stress inducer if something's not turning out like I had expected LOL!

    I lost my only "child" (he was 40) in 2006. Quilting was the only thing that kept me from losing myself. It was definitely the best therapy for me. If I am away from my quilting for more than a few days, I go through withdrawal. It may be an expensive "hobby", but it's cheaper than counseling, and the end product can bring joy to others.
