Relaxation Technique


Over the weekend I attended some mini classes, one of which was on reducing stress. We were all given a questionaire to fill out to determine our stress levels. One on the list was, "Add 20 points if you practice some form of relaxation technique each day." I told my friend next to me that I couldn't think of anything and she was surprised that I didn't do deep breathing or yoga or something like that. Then I thought about stitching my hexagons. I have found them so relaxing to work on, especially while listening to something (TV, music... DH). So I gave myself the 20 points.

I find those relaxing too! Do I get 20 points?? By the way, I can't see your stitches at all. Some of mine you can see the stitches, but not all. Any suggestions?

These are so cute. I think sewing hexies should get 40 points, because you get something beautiful and you have less stress!!

relaxing and addicting! I go through spells of time where I carry by bag of hexagons with me and I make them wherever I go. Right now I've started making machine pieced quilts with hexagons that don't require Y seams...
