My husband pointed out yesterday that we have an extra week between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, since Thanksgiving fell so early on the calendar. Initially I thought it was a jedi mind trick on his part, but even if it had been, it worked. I felt more relaxed immediately, and put aside a few other things to start sorting for a quilt that I’ve been wanting to work on for what feels like forever. ‘Cause this is the funnest thing on my list. And sorting fabric is calming anyway. That’s my mantra this holiday season. Do what’s fun and relax.
