    This is a time for a good time together, if it's therapy for him or not it's surely not our job to say if it is. We all probably use all of our hobbies as a form of therapy to some degree but none of us really want or need that reminder when we are just trying to enjoy our time quilting. Hope this made some sense Have Fun together
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    That's great. Our son also has a mild case of PTSD. Enjoy your together time! The creativity will help relax both of you.

    Bless his dear heart and bless YOU for helping him through a difficult time. I hope you share laughter during your time together.

    Quilt making is great therapy, indeed, as I discovered myself following surgery last year. The business of cutting, piecing, creating is a terrific concentrator and gives you something to do and think about besides worry and brood.

    So true, so true, couldn't have said it better!
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    How great you have a new sewing buddy, maybe the time together will allow him to work and talk through his issues. And it will give you time to get to know him in totally different way.

    Had to take my glasses off because they were fogging up from my tears while this reading this thread and about you and your nephew. My goodness, what a wonderful aunt and role model you must have been for him while he was growing up. The Lord is our Jehovah Jireh which means, "I see ahead and make a provision for you". I believe He saw ahead for your nephew and made a provision for him through you. The Lord moves in mysterious ways...
    I am thrilled for him and you to go on this journey together! I pray that constructing the quilt will help him "build" his life back .
    We never know who's lives we touch through our daily routines over the course of time. You touched his heart big time.
