Good day!! It's taken me a week to finish this post and I just scrapped the whiny bits! While I needed to write them out, I decided I didn't need to share them because the few conversations I've had with folks over the past couple weeks have started out with a negative whiny statement to which I find myself responding with a deflated sigh. And I don't want you to respond to me with a deflated sigh!!
One of the best things I did in the past was to realize I could depend on stitching to calm me down! It is definitely my default action when I am struggling to function. That default response means I can reflect back over the past couple weeks with satisfaction in spite of the challenges of Covid life. Recognizing this is good for my head and my heart so I remember to embrace the good bits.
Fact -- My sourdough baking has improved and the fragrant scent of fresh bread lifts my mood. Therefore, I need to keep baking (and since I shouldn't eat all of it, I should share more of it).

mug cozy on Instagram and shared the link to the pattern. When I saw it, I wanted one for the studio since my tea is always going cold up there. A small box of bright cutting scraps provided the inspiration for the color palette and soon I was quilting the outer shell slabs.
