Oh, I can't imagine the stress! When I'm on stress overload i curl up on the couch and watch bad reality TV :) I do need to wash a quilt made with Zipadee Doo Dah which is a Moda line with lots of red - my very first quilt ever and its never been washed, so i will certainly wash it alone and with several Shout Catchers! Thanks for the reminder (ive never tried the color catchers, but I've only washed 2 or 3 finished quilts.

I had so much fun reading everyone's stress-busting routines. There are some busy bees who like to keep their hands busy with housework or sewing, some who enjoy a little retail therapy, and some kindred spirits like myself. I am definitely an emotional eater. You better believe I curled up with a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese for dinner and ate my feelings the other night. Don't worry, I did round out the meal with a pot green beans, and we kept things civilized by eating off of plates, much as I wanted to eat directly from the pot of fake cheesy goodness. I realize that a walk around the block or cleaning the tile grout in my shower stall might have been a more constructive response to my anxiety, but I can't be a goody two-shoes all the time.

Jelly roll quilt in progress 

Thanks again! I'm off to sew on my jelly roll quilt for a few minutes before bedtime. Peace out y'all!


  1. Woohooo! THANK YOU so much for the Shout Color Catchers giveaway! This is the the first quilt I ever made and it has never been washed! I gave it to my mom in 2009, and mom just passed away. The quilt is moving to our cabin, but needs cat hair washed off :) and it will always be special to me so I I'm glad I can wash it safely! Thanks again! !Linda

  2. I am anxiously awaiting pics of your jellyroll quilt. will it be soon???
