My Millie is set up in my deceased mother's bedroom. She lived with us for 5 years as she battled cancer. I can feel at peace even if I just go in and sit for a few minutes on my lunch hour. I wonder if in January, we are just catching up from the FRAZZLE of the Holidays. I love all processes of Quilt Making. It does bring me joy - but you are right.... Reflection and renewal is required as well. I last really quilted mid November. I feel like I am ready to go. Enjoy your quiet time as it is precious!
