Life. It happens. Thanks to all my friends and family for the love and support as I build back from injuries and a life of wear and tear (ahem, and 8 kids!). I'm recovering from hip replacement surgery and doing well. I will have the other side done later this year. Hopefully in the next couple weeks I will be back to swimming everyday and eventually to be able to sit and sew for a length of time. I'm itching to get into my stash and move forward. I've decided to sift through unfinished projects and choose something I can easily finish and do that first. I've got a full spring and summer with family/friend visits and vacations planned so I need to focus on recovery right now. I have 3 granddaughters I want to be able to play with and enjoy. That is very motivating.
Life is about moving forward everyday and getting through our struggles. We all have them. We don't often talk about them. In my house we are perfectly imperfect. Just like my quilts. None of them is without flaws, some flaws major and some minor but I enjoy each one. I've missed being creative as I've taken a break from my love of quilting. I have missed being inspired by your projects, too. And like old friends, we can always pick up and go from where we left off. Thanks for patience and support. Love abounds.
