    As opposed to just a "fun" thing to do? I know, for myself, that I need to have some creative hobby to "escape" to. Going into the right brain shuts off all the stuff I don't want to deal with (family situations). I originally was interested in quilting just for the fun of it, but now I crave sitting at the sewing machine or searching/reading here, or surfing other quilting related info (and buying books! :lol: ) - it just keeps life light! How about you?

    I totally agree. And then there are those times when a quilt I'm working on make me need therapy!

    I to find it very relaxing to just sit and sew. Love looking for new patterns and books. I have way more ideas of things to make then I will ever have time.

    For me, sewing is definitely relaxing and a creative outlet. For the past few weeks, I have been having eye problems and can't sew for any length of time. I am amazed at how much I miss it. If I ever lost the ability to sew, I think I would go bonkers.....it helps keep me sane.

    I find it is very relaxing as well. Except of course when things don't line up and I have to unsew everything I just did.
    Otherwise, it helps me keep my sanity!!!

    Same, it is also helping me to cut back on a very bad habit I have.............smoking. The more I sew the less I smoke. Cutting back then quitting!!!!!!!!!!!
