    where does your mind go....when you hand quilt?

    do you dream?

    do you get lost in the stitches?

    does it relax your soul?

    please tell me.

    I am learning the blanket stitch, and I think I may have found something to ease my mind....handwork.

    A repeated thought is "this is going to take FOREVER!", followed by the thoughts of joy at having something to stitch.
    I always have the TV going or a movie on to occupy my mind.

    i am usually watching TV, listening to radio.

    It's funny though, sometimes when I pick up a quilt to work on it, my thoughts immediately go back to what I was watching the last time I was quilting on it.

    All of the above, sometimes the kids have to say, mom, more than a few times to get my attention. I literally get lost in the stitches. My fav. daydream is building my dream home & going room by room decorating it.

    :lol:

    When I use to hand quilt I did the same. Then I remember what I watched or listened to each time I use that quilt. Once I watched "Spencer's Mountain" So now when I do hand work I think about that movie.

    I really do not know, I guess I get so lost. I love silence or just natural sounds,like now all I hear are the birds, breeze and my one deep tone windchime. And of course the snore of the bulldog,and my hound scracthing reminding me she needs a bath dangit. lol, the background noise of the tv makes me crazy. I will have to pay attention I guess ,I do agree it puts you into a meditative state when it is mindless sticthing.
    Sometimes in the winter when the house is closed up I listen to a Native American flute CD and I do like audiobooks as well.

    Most of the time the only thing I am thinking is how I'm going to get those 8 tiny little stitches into that tiny little inch.

    With that being said, I'm still new to this so it takes alot for me.

    I love to hand quilt and it eases my soul immensely!!! :)
    Sometimes I quilt old tops and think about the person who pieced it.
