    Been gone,I'm back!!!

    Hi Everyone,
    So glad to say Hi. I haven't been in the forum or groups
    for quite sometime. I have been trying to get back to
    my quilting. I need a big push. My husband passed away
    3 yr. ago and I joined right after that. I learned how to
    quilt in 1996 from my mother-in-law at the senior center
    in our small town of New Boston Michigan. My daughter had
    passed away and it was wonderful therapy quilting and being with
    all the ladies who have been quilting forever. In 2007 my husband became
    ill with lung cancer. He had. his left lung removed and fought that terrible
    disease for 3 years. He was my helper and cheerleader before and after he got sick. Then 2010
    he went to be with the Lord in December and my mother-in-law (his mom) also
    passed in November of that year. So my life changed drastically before and after
    his death. I tried to join a quilting club, but I quit going to meetings.. (my bad). I just have been staying home, and not being productive.

    So I want and need to get back full force in communicating, quilting and making friends. I enjoy this site and will
    be participating and making friends. So very glad to be back with all you WONDERFUL people!!!



    Hugs

    So sorry for your loss. I've seen how supportive people on this forum can be, so hopefully you will find what you need here to rebuild your life.
    May the road rise up to meet you...
    May the wind be always at your back...
    May you be in Heaven a half hour before the Devil knows you're dead...

                      Glad you are back. So sorry for your losses. Quilting has helped me after my oldest sister passed away. Hope it does the same for you.. I think of her when I am looking at fabrics for quilts. It's always happy thoughts. She loved anything I made, whether quilting, crochet. Or knitting. And she loved fabrics for decorating.

                              Welcome back Peggy! My heart goes out to you... it sounds as if your have had some terribly heartwrenching losses the last couple of years... it's time for you to join the living and enjoy this life that you have. What I love about quilting is that I can pour my heart and soul, pain and joys, into a quilt. It's very theraputic for me. I hope that you feel the same way, getting back into the "groove" of quilting. We are quite a supportive bunch of characters, and it will be good to have another member of the family back on the forum!
