Autumn and a Return to the Sewing Room

It's been nearly two years since I posted a blog entry. I haven't been slacking off. I didn't lose interest in sewing or blogging. Life just got very complicated - and sad.

My father was diagnosed with cancer in January 2014. Despite incredible courage, strength, and grace, he succumbed to the disease almost exactly two years after receiving his diagnosis. I didn't do much sewing while he was sick. I often felt like I wasn't spending enough time with my dad or spending enough time with my husband and children. I opted for sleep rather than stitches. If you're part of the Sandwich Generation then you can no doubt relate.



As winter approaches, I feel the need to pull out patterns, pins, fabric, and scissors. To create clothes and quilts to keep loved ones warm. And hopefully to do some healing after a long journey that ended the way I had hoped and prayed it never would.

Please stay tuned for I have tips and tutorials to share. Thanks for being here.

  2. My sympathies to you. You were wise to set aside some things in order to concentrate on your father, your family and caring for yourself. I hope that as you return to quilting and blogging, your soul will be nourished.
