Almost (Okay, Not Even Close To) Famous

Did you know that quilting is a great stress reliever? Duh, of course YOU did. Now more people in Canada know it too. The December print issue of Canadian Living (their site has an awesome recipe directory BTW) has an article about using the five senses to de-stress during the holidays, which features yours truly waxing poetic about our collective passion.


So when the crazies hit this holiday season, go touch some fabric!

To my Canadian quilty friends who can get this issue, I highly recommend you leave it lying open to this article on the coffee table so loved ones can see it. Maybe circle it with red marker if your family is as observant as mine (Love you, honey! :) ). Then if you want more quilting time, start wringing your hands and muttering distractedly, "Butter, gotta pick up butter for the shortbread. More butter. At least 3, no maybe 4, no definitely 6. Right, 6 bricks. Gotta remember this time! Crap, how many did I say?" Before you know it, your loved ones will be encouraging you to take some 'you' time to relax in your happy sewing space. :D
