Sewing as Relaxation

The past two days I really needed to do some mindless sewing.  Sometimes you just want to de-stress and don’t want a complicated pattern.

Lucky for me, my scrap basket runneth over.

scrap basketI pulled out my spiderweb pieces and went to work.  I just sewed scrap strips onto triangles until I ran out of triangles.

Have you seen these articles floating around online about the benefits of knitting and quilting and other crafts on your mental health?  This one is from Yahoo and this one is from The Washington Post.  I always have problems explaining to people why I love quilting so much and after reading these articles I realize there must be some therapeutic meditative benefits that I get from it.  Well, that and a beautiful, warm quilt!
