Woohoo! I’ve finally finished piecing my giant scrappy swoon quilt, and it only has one small chocolaty handprint on! 744+ squares later and I can definitely say a whole lot of insanity went it to this quilt, but that’s good as I needed to get it out of my system.
The past year has been a tough one, I’ve suffered badly with depression and anxiety, some days just the thought of getting out of bed was enough to give me a panic attack! This quilt was something to focus on and pour my anxious energy in to, there’s nothing quite like sitting chain piecing squares together, it’s simple and repetitive and I found that very therapeutic. Sewing might be my unhealthy obsession, but I don’t think any amount of therapy will get rid of it!
Now things are looking brighter. The sun is shining and I’m feeling much better, a brilliant opportunity has come my way, I’ve won a fab prize, and now this is finally finished! I’m ready to move on, so hopefully I can get it quilted and bound this week, there’s so much more I can’t wait to get started on!
Linking up with WIP Wednesday!
