The Cure for the Holiday Blues - Quilt!

For some reason, this year I've had to deal with what some people call "the holiday blues." I just couldn't figure out why. There was a round of the blues at both Thanksgiving and the 3 weeks around Christmas. What to do? Then big light-bulb! It's just the DH and me at holiday time so the big lesson was "honey, you need family!" So, what did I do? So, I fought the temptation to hide and mope, and went to the guild's weekly Sit & Sew!! That was yesterday.

We started at 10am and I stayed until 3pm - with a short break for lunch. I had thought I would get all the blocks for the Shadow Me This quilt finished (see Jan 1 post), and be able to get home  no later than 1pm. But it took me all day. There was just too much fun going on!

There are 3 things that quilters most love to do at their sit & sew gatherings: help each other, eat, and laugh. Never mind if they really accomplish anything for themselves.  It's really all about our quilting families and our mutual love of quilting.

So, now the blocks are all done. They're pressed and ready for the design wall. It's a good thing, too. It's due in a week! And the pattern too! Yikes! Guess I should get crackin', huh?

Have a great week. Now, let's quilt!


  1. Love your blog! Can't wait to attend your Shadow Me This class. By the way, I'm getting close to finishing my quilt top and will get with you about quilting it.

  2. Well, I've FINALLY finished my quilt top...whew. I'm excited about getting it to you for quilting. I've seen your work and know it will be beautiful. Be seeing you soon!!!
