If something bad happens in your life, pick up your needle and thread and sew. Calm your mind and soul.
Wednesday night, I picked up my hexagon quilt and did some sewing, for hours. I wasn't interested in sleeping and put together several rows of hexies. It was just what I needed to do. My little pieces of fabric, my thread and needle, and me. What do people do who don't have something like this to turn to in times of turmoil?
Sewing is more than just making kids' clothes for sure.
