    Thank you everyone for all the encouragement. Making quilts is very relaxing for me. I can lose myself for hours in my sewing room. Creating is so much fun and look what comes out of it.

    Your quilt is beautiful and I love the lively, bright colors. I can see why this would make you feel better. It makes me smile just looking at it. Great quilt.

    Beautiful quilt....and so glad you have found a creative outlet to help with your depression. I too find solace in quilting, I think it is the colours, shapes and the rhythm of the process. Thanks for sharing and the colours are just beautiful.

    You may have heard this before, but a doctor recommended to my sister, who also suffers seasonal depression, to increase the lighting in her house. The lighter and brighter the better, I guess to simulate sunshine. Little by little, she was able to tackle a room at a time in her house to paint and brighten it up. She rarely gets depressed anymore, and certainly not to the extent she used to.

    Your quilt is just gorgeous, and if you don't keep it, it will certainly brighten someone's year!

    I too suffer seasonal depression...long winters in Canada too...this summer hasnt been great either..too many dark days...I think it is true though that we are drawn to bright and colourful fabrics for that very reason..it gives us a boost...beautiful job on the quilt...and keep at it...

    If you want to look at bright and happy you should look at my "Monterrey Medallions". It's posted under pictures. It makes me smile just to look at it.

    I am really glad you feel better. It gives me hope. I have suffered from long days, years, of depression. I find music can help lift my spirits. I like Ravel's Bolaro for a daily dose. Then I keep Baroque music on to help stablize my mood during the day. Finally, I use some very soft Native American Woodflute music for sleep. The Baroque music really helps me stay calm and not make so many errors. When I feel really awful, the addition of material and sewing help alot. I'm glad I'm not alone in this.

    My doctor told me to do the same. It has helped in the rooms that are finished, but our house is dark. We have windows, but the position of the house won't let in much light. Suggestions? You could PM me.

    So glad you're feeling better! I wonder if my mother would not have struggled with depression so much if she had had a hobby. It runs in my family and I don't have that problem and maybe that's why. I have loved to sew since a child. Your quilt is gorgeous!
