    I have decided that if my DH ever complains about the cost of my "hobby" I will point out what I am saving him in therapists!!!

    I love this sentiment. Am going to keep this in mind next time I need to.

    This is why I got into quilting in the first place. It is the one place I can put my chronic depression on a back burner and do something for me or for a gift with no pressure or expectations. it is just fun now!

    That's exactly why I like hand-quilting!!! I find the more I concentrate on something else the less stressed I am. Looking through material and thinking of things to make with it also works.

    I agree 100%. I get so engrossed that I forget what time it is. And I keep thinking of the next quilt.

    I started to quilt the day I found out that my father was very ill and wouldn't live long...quilting gave me a warm loving feeling a place to hide. I felt as if the fabric cradled me from the hurt of loosing my most precious father! It still calms my nerves and makes me feel very good about myself.
