The Quilters guide and personal journal to help you through difficult times – especially Covid-19.
During these stressful and unsettling times, this Personal Journal will help you reflect on your days, find encouragement and celebrate your progress. Allowing you to find your happy sewing place again.
We are currently dealing with a world wide pandemic. Something that is affecting everyone that we know as well as ourselves.
After considering this for many days, chatting back and forth with my mother, asking for suggestions, fb lives in my group – I came up with a few pages that I think can be helpful with dealing with what is happening.
This journal is about making note of what is happening now. Today. This minute.
It’s about realizing and noticing your blessings, how your family is doing, daily checking in with yourself, feeding your soul, making notes of encouragement, over viewing our days, reflecting in the evening and repeating those things that help each day be better.
Whether you print and use this journal daily, or have it taped to your wall as a reminder, the Quilters Personal Journal is specific to this time. Please use it how you’d like, share it with those you love. Keep it as you look back on what is happening around you and how you are handling the changes- daily.
Because we are in such a specific time of â€˜shelter in place’ there are additional pages for tracking the amount of days at home as well as marking our accomplishments during this time.
Thank you so much for using the journal and I hope that you and your family find peace during these times.. As well as comfort each day.
Know that us quilters are here for you and you are not alone. You have our continued support and strength. Find the good in every day as well as some time at your sewing machine. Our happy place.
