Taking Comfort in Handmade Crafts During Hard Times

We all gravitate towards things that give us comfort during times of stress.  Whether it be “comfort foods”, your stash of carefully gathered fabric, or a pile of soft yarn and a set of knitting needles, it’s those little pleasures that sooth our souls.  During these difficult economic times, we’re looking for a simpler way of life, a way to slow down and relax without spending a lot of money.

We seek out our history in the creation of a quilt, a connection with a grandmother or aunt, and begin to create our own traditions.  Is there a special quilt that is begging to be made for each new baby arrival?  Does a friend or loved one need a little extra comfort that only a hand made quilt can provide?  Perhaps you warm those around you with a cozy handknit sweater or afghan.  As the world rages around us, we find our own peace with a creative hand and a return to simplicity.

So this year, if your pocketbook doesn’t quite stretch to cover that exotic vacation, perhaps a few yards of fabric and a wonderful pattern will fit the bill.  And, who says you can’t have a Margarita or two in the backyard while you contemplate your next project?
