So I'm thinking about giving this a shot again

So, its been a while, I have kept this blog up knowing that one day i would get back into sewing.  i thought life was hectic...I thought I couldn't find time to quilt, let alone blog about it.  And then, on August 20th my son Q was in a horrible accident which resulted in his death on August 29, 21 years to the day he and his twin brother were born.  I am grieving and trying to get through my days without him and with the cavern that exists in my soul now that he is no longer here.

I plan to use this blog as a challenge to myself, to sew often and post often proving to myself and the world that I am sewing. I have been quilting now for 10 years and have, like most, much invested in this hobby.  I need to make it work for me.  I have been sewing a little here and there so i know its cathartic and something that can help, I need to just do it more often and consistently. I know that I still like buying fabric, so my passion is not gone, I just have not held myself accountable to get up and stop feeling sorry for myself and sew.  So my personal challenge is to post at least once a week and have a photo of what I accomplished that week.  So if you follow and are so inclined, I give you free license to "bust my balls" should you see a week pass that I do not sew or post :-)

Gosh, this has to be so very hard to get through. Recently having lost a brother and both of my parents I understand grief and how it just tears at your heart. To lose a son would be so much to cope with. But you will cope, you will find joy in his memory and remember good times . When the tears come, it is a natural thing and a very personal thing. I wish we were close so that I could just come and spend time sewing with you.

Mary so glad to see you back on here. You know how my heart aches for you, but you know how to reach me if you ever need to. I'll bust you if you keep me in line, lol.
