Hey Ya'll!!!! I'm Baaaacccckkkkk!

I have been MIA for an entire year!!!!  I'm back, I'm back.  I hope my readers will come back!  When my husband died unexpectedly in April 2011, I simply 'lost interest' in everything.  I no longer wanted to read or quilt -- two of my favorite past-times.  There were even the lowest of times when I didn't even want to live. Time and spending time in God's Word are wonderful healers.  Am I healed?  Nope, but I'm so much better.  I want to live again.  After about 6 months or so after his death, I finally started reading again.  I did do 'some' quilting, but only things that I absolutely HAD to get done -- a gift, etc.  Now I want to quilt, sew, and blog!  I WANT to spend time out in my quilting studio that he helped me create and spent a lot of time with me.  There were many hours that I would be quilting and he would be in the studio with me watching sports or hunting shows.  He was my biggest cheerleader!  I am still heartbroken and feel like half of me is gone, but I am learning to smile again, laugh, and enjoy myself.  It is what he would want me to do.  

I'm ready to get back to sewing, blogging, swapping, creating, and maybe even buying some fabric....hehehehehehe!

Hi Kathy I am so very sorry for your loss, but am glad you are going to blog and quilt again. There is something comforting about matching up pieces of fabric, cutting them up, and then sewing them back together. I'm glad to "meet" you in this new year. God bless you!
