View Full Version : Something Positive!

April 6th, 2013, 01:06 AM
Well, it seems like I have been in a slump the past week for sure. So much to deal with. But, today I pulled out my son's Wedding gift quilt and put the outer borders on it. Will ship it off to the quilter the first of the week. I also got my bed coverlette I made shipped off. Hopefully, they will both be back by the end of the month when my son and his new wife are planning to come here.

I'm so glad to have something positive to talk about! I'm thankful. Very thankful. My brother is doing much better, he went to the dr today and they said everything is healing fine. Praise God for that victory.

The weather here has been nice, so I think that helped to push me to get something done. I'll post pics of my two quilts when they come back from my quilter.

Thank you everyone for the messages, posts and all the encouragement. I cried the other night when I saw them all. Knowing you are not alone when you pass through hard times, means a LOT. Quilters are the best! :icon_wave:

It has been a really bad week for you but with your brother healing nicely and a upcoming visit from your son and his wife things are looking up. Finishing that quilt is a good way to feel better also. Hugs, May

I'm so pleased to hear you've turned a corner after the awful incident with your poor brother and that he is doing well. You must be feeling better in yourself to start your sewing again, I know whenever I'm worried about something it makes it hard to concentrate on anything. The sun is shining and you're making your quilts - life is looking better. :icon_bigsmile:

So glad that your brother is healing! Happy that you are able to get back to quilting - the creative process and the chain piecing help me to find peace. I am able to block out some of the stuff going on and feel better. Hope it helps you too! Lisa
