Quiltin is Meaningful Work ~ ~ It does a body good ! ! !
Just casually reading an article.... the statements and view were not brand new to me.... but somehow quite encouraging and refreshing. Pronto - - - I'll run back to my sewing room tonight.... my haven of peace! Jillynn Stevens, Ph.D. quoted the findings from the University of Glasgow that studied a local quilting group and found that "Quilting seemed to possess some distinct properties for enhancing well-being that would not be replicable through outdoor/physical activity."

I always say.... wow this would look good in fabric/art quilt!
The article I was reading further stated that "When you're happy and doing something you love, your brain gets saturated with dopamine and serotonin, otherwise known as happy chemicals-especially when you're doing "meaningful work" using your hands. According to Kelly Lambert, PhD and a member of the neuroscience department at Randolph-Macon College, quilting complements these conditions perfectly.
