We all know what a busy and stressful time of year this can be. From what I am hearing, social protocol dictates that I should be baking!! We all also know the best way to get through the busy-ness and the stress is to find a quiet, relaxing activity…like quilting!
The very moment I sit down to quilt, whether its hand-applique, hand-quilting or even stitching a block together on the sewing machine, I can feel the tension and stress melt away. Like this snowman!
I have been slowly working away on the next block of Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore”. I opted to do the flower buds flat, rather that dimensional, as the pattern suggested.
Also, I am still stitching the evenings away with a quilt (and sometimes a cat!) on my lap.
Til next time….
