YAY!!!! The Texas Rangers Baseball team has, once again, advanced to the World Series. How exciting this is for this Texas girl. It was bittersweet watching them win last night. I sit and stitched on binding on a quilt (pictures are forthcoming) that I had been commissioned to make. I kept looking over at my husband's chair, but he was not there.
We used to always watch the baseball games together. Of course, I would always be stitching on 'something' -- a quilt, hand embroidery, etc. It just wasn't the same without him with me. Loneliness is tough when you are used to doing things as a couple.
So the moral of this story is this: Go hug your loved ones; tell them you love them as you never know when it could be your last time.
Back to quilting. I think I may just be back to the quilting world!!!! After losing my husband, I had lost all interest in quilting. I didn't understand because quilting is my favorite thing to do!!! I've been reading books on becoming a widow and grief and I've learned this is normal -- yea, I'm finally normal!!! ;) I am finishing up a T-Shirt quilt made of Harley Davidson t-shirts. These shirts are from all over the U.S. After this quilt is finished, I'll be making another with t-shirts from around the world. Ya'll stay tuned for upcoming pictures.
