Satisfaction is Completing a Task

trimmed half-square triangles
March 2020
It's satisfying to tackle and complete a dreaded task. I've been meaning to trim/square these HSTs for nearly three months, but I kept putting it off. On Sunday afternoon, I finally took the time.

The HSTs range in size from 2.5 - 5 inches. I don't have a plan for how to use these HSTs: something will present itself, and when it does, they are prepped and ready to sew.


I also managed to tidy my sewing room. I feels good to complete tasks I've neglected too long.

Is social distancing helping you complete some neglected tasks?

Finding the Good


It's easy to get depressed watching the news and the ever-growing number of individuals infected with the virus enveloping the globe, but for mental health, it's important to also focus on the good, no matter how small.

Some good things that happened here:
•  I'm knitting again - a pair of socks with stash yarn
•  Online banking - taking care of necessities without leaving home
•  Mystery QALs - clues to look forward to each week/month

Share something good that happened to you in the last week.
