        Awe Shannon, I am so excited that you are the recipient of that quilt. I couldn't be happier. So good to hear how well you are doing. Love the tat. Check in often so we can hear how you are doing. PS...don't think of it as a failed marriage...think of it as a speed bump in the progress of your life.

          Shannon - you are absolutely glowing! So glad you popped back in with an update. Love that COC group - that is another winner of a quilt.

            I can so relate on the second failed marriage...I am in the middle of trying to save my second one right now...and I have 175 lbs to lose. I don't know your entire story (I was absent from here for a while)...but you should be incredibly proud of yourself!! You must feel so incredibly empowered right now! You look amazing and I can't imagine being a size 8! CONGRATULATIONS!! AND the no smoking is huge! You will feel SO awesome to be done with that, and if you're anything like me, will be a nightmare as a reformed smoker! I can't stand to be near it now!

            You are now my inspiration. I'm so thankful to have seen this post...maybe I will make it through this nightmare I'm in right now afterall.

                I am sorry for the pain you must have experienced going through the loss of your marriage. i want to congratulate you on the weight loss though,you do look great.

                  Marriages- never again! Sorry to hear you're going through this for a second time. I've been there too although the second wasn't a marriage but we had two children.

                  Now I'm very happily single and really enjoyig life. I can leave the fabric and half finished quilts where-ever I like! Now isn't that something to look forward to?

                  Divorce is terrible, but you will get over it given time.
