A Little Therapy

I spent some time in my sewing room yesterday and today...did a bit of straightening, seems as though everything I didn't put away for the last couple of months got stuck in there...so after cleaning up a bit I started this baby quilt.  This is for my dental hygienist that I have gone to for years and I love her.  She's having her first grandbaby, and every grandma needs a quilt.  I had another plan for a quilt for her, even started it, but I just couldn't seem to concentrate on that one, so I didn't fight it...I just put it aside, I'll need another baby quilt, and started cutting squares from this...
...and ended up with this...
...it was quick, easy, I think it's kind of cute and I got the whole thing done in a couple of days.  Just being in my sewing room, playing in the fabric, and then folding it all and putting it back on the shelf, and sitting at my machine made me feel so much better.  I could feel my spirits rising...it was a very good thing.  Hmmm, what to do next?
