Survival of the Quiltest

I honestly do feel a lot better, today.  I survived the weekend.  Something interesting happened.  Up until now, seeing things that were either my sister's or a gift from her had made me crumble into a pile of sadness.  This weekend, I reached for my sister's coffee cup (that I gave her) so I could feel her presence.  Up until now, I have avoided looking at her things, touching her things, wearing her things.  I am praying that this new sensation of wanting to hold onto her through holding her possessions is the beginning of less sadness, less heartache.  Thank you all who sent warm comforting thoughts, good karma, and great vibes.  They were needed and appreciated...

Now, let me give you a peek into what I have been doing for the last two weeks....Here are some completely new designs.  Whatchathink?


  1. I love the fabric choices - OF COURSE! (We have the same taste in those bright shiny things!!).
    I'm glad to hear the day turned better for you. 13 months is the usual time frame advised to get through all the grief. Then you've been through the "first" of everything without your loved one. You know when you pick up her mug, she is still with you. I'm glad you can remember her fondly now and not cry every time.

  2. That is an incredibly interesting comment about the 13 months. I will, of course, keep you posted. Good thing the computer is basically vertical or I would have drowned it over the last 12 months.
