It's Just Life

Once again I say hi.
 Not much sewing going on here since the end of October. I wanted to write my blog and touch base with all the people I've made friends with in blog land, but just haven't been in the mood.....ya know what I mean? 
 I usually go on a quilt hiatus the first part of the year anyway, but I've had a reason this time. I spent much of the end of 2017 in South Dakota. Our family lost 2 loved ones 3 weeks apart. It just takes time to get over stuff like that.
 We're all doing a much better these days. 
  My sister came to visit and made her first quilt for her first great-granddaughter, 
she even machine quilted it by herself !
I have many sewing projects to catch up on....4 BOM's, a pattern to test...not due just yet thank goodness, and I've got that hankering to just play with some collage techniques. 
Don't hold me to anything, writing on my blog is at least keeping it from going null and void. 
God Bless you !
Until next time

Vickie, it is always good hearing from you. I am so sorry for all your looses, but I am happy you are doing alright. It seems like this year has been bad for a lot of people. I know it has been rough for us. Take care and God Bless you too. Looking forward to seeing more of your creations. Everything you do is so beautiful.

First time visitor to your blog. Really loved viewing all your lovely creations. I am so sorry for your recent losses of family members. May your loving memories be a blessing and comfort. Your photos are beautiful as each tells a story. You are an inspiration.

Sorry for your losses. I just got home from Texas (funeral). I haven't sewn hardly at all all year so far, which is really strange for me.

Hi Vickie,

I have just found your blog by way of Pinterest, and have read all the way back, instead of mitering and hemstitching napkins as I intended to do! Your faith and kind heart shine through. We are never ready to lose those we love, but how grateful we can be that we have people in our lives to love and care for, and memories to cherish, and the opportunity to be with them again. Just just that the missing them is hard....

I just wanted you to know that a stranger is grateful for the friendship and kindness that your blog and your life radiate.

A Texan in Washington state,
