It has been about a year since I posted and I have missed visiting with everyone. First I want to thank those of you who checked up on me during my absence to see how I was. I really appreciated the care and concern you expressed to me. Appreciated it a LOT !! It is a large part of why I have decided to be courageous and start blogging again.
The trouble started with hardware/computer/printer/camera issues. I could not get my photos to load for the life of me and then other difficulties developed.
Then my health deteriorated further. I got very depressed about this .... I did not want to be depressed but I was. The condition of chronic pain and fatigue can be brutal at times. This past year was one of those very dark seasons.
Physically I am not out of the woods and the truth of the matter is that this may be as good as it is gonna get. Doctors have stopped answering me when I ask "when is it going to get better?" But it is something I can accept now. Accept what is and the loss.
During this yukky, yukky year, I kept quilting ..... YEAH !!!! Along with prayer and God's sustenance to help me .... there has been quilting .... creativity bringing light to some dark times. Am so glad I renewed this part of my life before this particular storm hit me. Being creative is such a blessing. My DGD gave me a boost when she told me my stuff looks just like the stuff for sale in Anthropology. That got her another quilt from her dear ole Grandma !!!! Smart girl!!
I did have to stop quilting for a few months when I fell and broke my foot. I found I was just not coordinated enough to use the other foot on the foot pedal. Couldn't drive either. It did not help that the fracture did not show on the x-rays until I had been trying to walk on it for a month with excruciating leg pain ... so they took more x-rays from a different angles and what do you know?!! .... it was fractured. Great !!!! One more thing !!!
I was hand sewing but found I needed something even more mindless to do .... so I got out the ole yarn and crochet hooks. Been having a ball with that while my foot was healing.... my cats love my yarn as much as they love my fabrics. :-)
I will be visiting my old friends this week and will leave you all notes. I have pictures but not ready to tackle loading them today. Love to all.
