New Beginning

In case you haven't noticed I haven't posted in a while. My life has felt like a whirlwind mostly centered around my health problems. I will be out of work for the next 6-8 weeks to "reorganize" my life and plan out what I need in my life and how to fit it in. While getting my health back is the most important goal my life cannot be just focused on that which means; working a reasonable work schedule, seeing friends regularly, reading and quilting. Next post will be pictures of fabrics and my ideas of what to do with them. I'm always open to suggestions. In there will be the quilt I started for my daughter when she started college three years ago. Well, it obviously wasn't ready for her to move in so now my goal is that it's ready for her first apartment. When I look at it now and realize how easy it is I'm not sure why I didn't keep working on it but we all have those quilts hidden away somewhere so we dont have to see them and be reminded. It's a Kaffe Fassett quilt with Kaffe Fassett fabric. I love it and always did. Now I look at fabrics and can see what shapes and what other fabrics would go best with them. Aside from my now large stock pile of mostly collections I want to do a green quilt, a grey and yellow quilt and... I'm not sure what else but there'll be plenty more. I welcome all suggestions, ideas for revisions, etc. Thanks.

  1. Minna...I am so sorry about your back and your health. I know what you are going through. I had a bad ankle break (by bad, I am talking 5 days in the hospital after 5 hours surgery). PT made it swell & I used a cane for almost 2 years. This past summer I had lumbar surgery and 30 days to the day of the 1st, I was rushed in for the 2nd one. I am always tired, I have put on weight and I don't feel well most days. I have joined TOPS, am now getting regular (every other week) massages and have a new quilting chair. I use a towel behind my back and am mindful that I need to get up and move. Quilting is therapy to me, my blog is therapy and my prayers are with you. If you need to vent, cry or yell, I am here! Work slow, take your time and heal correctly!
