    Default Why quilting is a lot like grieving.

    Hi friends,
    I'm new to this forum and also just started quilting in April. I wrote a humorous essay comparing the five stages of grieving to quilting and thought you might enjoy it.

    Here's a link:
    The 5 stages of quilting. ? Debt of Gratitude

    Happy quilting! I look forward to learning more on this forum.

    Yeah, that's it! What is hard is when you have a pile of UFO's and are at every stage at once!

    I'm making my family read this so they understand!

    I just realized it sort of echoes my quote below.
