Giveaway Winner

Here is the winner of the Quilted Heart book by Mona Hodgson -

                                    Mandy Currie

Congratulations, Mandy!  I will send your address to Mona as soon as you e-mail it to me.

Thanks to all of you for posting  a comment here. Your stories certainly touched my heart and I'm glad that quilting gets so many of you through life's difficult times. I know it does the same for me. It's a well documented fact that "the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight." For many of us, the creative process involved in quilting is also a healing technique that can not only relieve stress but bring us in touch with our emotions to generate greater feelings of well-being.
 
So if your problems (or the cold weather or winter blues) happen to be getting you down, try picking up a needle or sit  down at your sewing machine and see if making something lifts you up or changes your outlook a bit.
 
Valentine's day is coming soon and my mind is leaning toward making something small and cute with hearts or pink and red prints again this year. How about you?
 
 
 

 
Happy quilting!

Kathy, I love your little heart quilt. Hearts and shamrocks are two of my favorite quilting motifs, either as applique or quilted in the borders.
