    Yes I like all aspects, and I think that one reason there are more than on project going at the same time is because if I am doing a lot of piecing and need a break, I can switch to quilting, or vice versa. But yes there is something very therapeutic about it all.

    I've found the same thing to be true. Even if I just cut a couple of things out or sew a few minutes, that makes my day better. I just can't go a day without quilting, so the days my knee won't let me are really icky. Granted, I can noodle around on the Board or look at quilting books & that's good, too, but I really like the actual process. To me the journey, the process is as important as the finished product.

    I agree... going into "the zone" is a wonderful respite during this hectic life we all live.

    Sometimes I feel kind of guilty (for lack of a better way to express it). I make quite a few charity quilts & when people tell me how thoughtful I am (or whatever) for doing so, I always say "I don't make them for other people. I make them for me... the making is my joy". The fact that there's a "product" at the end is just a nice thing. But I'd do it even if there wasn't a "product". It does make me happy that something that brings me such peace & joy also is a good thing for others. Does what I'm saying even make sense? I feel like I'm just mangling what I'm trying to say. Maybe I should go to bed. Nah... more board to look at... LOL!

    Maybe. I am not sure I would have ever described it like that. I like to stay busy. Quilting is a more socially acceptable form of sewing. You can always find someone to give a quilt to.

    It does not sooth me like it seems to do some of you. I need to feel I am productive and it does that but for comfort I want a good book, warmth (sun, fire, bath) and good food.
