Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
Dawn:I have been cleaning and picking up this house for most of the morning.
I've been doing that for a week, I cannot believe how quickly I run out of gas. I am running out of time though, so I may have to kick it up a notch.
Y'all thanks for the Kudoos for the weight lose. But, I haven't DONE anything. I just still am not eating enough to keep a bird alive. I tried to eat a couple marshmallows yesterday. well, they did not go down up just past where I could not get them out. they hung in there for hours. Guess that is another thing off my eating list.
However, I have started walking. I would like to firm up a bit. And, will start my chair sit ups again.
We paid off the rest of my hospital bills from the surgery today. YAY! That sure feels good.
It is time for some new clothes. I am looking like a waif in my big ole clothes. Will have to wait till next Weds. for payday. We broke now!!
I am here to tell you that Kay Arthur makes me dizzy. She requires you to use markers to make symbols of words. The smell of the markers has just made me sick and dizzy. I think I will just read the Book and leave off the symbols.
So, glad my SS gift arrived. I was worried.
By the end ot tomorrow, I hope to have all my QCA (group) committents filled for this year. Then, I will give it a rest till after Christmas, I think. I still have a post card due next week so will get that done also.
Going to bed. Have a great night.

Sukochi, the marking does make it easier to see things and to follow patterns. I used these:
They do not smell at all and don't dry out and they are cheap.
Taking break from sewing this evening . I'll be back at it tomorrow.
Quilting My Rainbow
Well since i havent been on much thought id better put something on, Chrissy presents are all brought (i think) still need to make all my christmas cards (way way way behind this year) still need to wrap the presents and still need to post some too.
I need to marzipan the christmas cakes this weekend and i think we might be getting our Christmas tree this weekend as well.
Planning a couple of quilts one is to make a EPP quilt out of some of my mums clothes (i suppose you would call it a memory quilt) and for next year doing a applique quilt using the words for "the hawaiian 12 days of christmas" i thought that might be a bit different with mele kelikimaka round the border and using batiks to give it a warm more tropical feel What do you think?
Well done no one should have to deal with that crap, my mum used to tell me if you cant say something nice dont say anything at all (i try really i do)
I used to work in retail in a shop selling books a lady came in to collect a book i eventually found it but she said she was served by a young coloured girl, i said no thats not possible we dont have a young coloured girl working here, she was sure thats who served her i was certain that wasnt possible after she left one of the other girls came back from lunch i looked at her and realised (she was a young coloured girl) i never even saw her colour i never had really noticed i saw that she was bright cheerful smart and a great sense of humour, when i told her she thought it was a so funny, so kelli not everyone notices the things that dont really matter.
lots of love
Frances that is an amazing story and exactly what life should be like. Notice the plusses and ignore the minuses. Color being a non-issue.
I have been having a hard time adjusting to life in my house. My husband of 37 years and I have decided to call it quits so I am getting a diviorce for christmas. Although it was mutual, I am devastated and having a very difficult time with the whole thing. Eventualy I will sleep the night, eat a meal and not think of him or me or us every two minutes but for now, it is a hour by hour endurance run. Sorry to be a downer at Christmas but I have a lot of friends out there and a lot more here and they have been a comfort to me.
Vivian. I know your heart is broken right now ,but try to look at this as a new beginning. Now you can be your own person and not have to answer to anyone but yourself. You can do what you want when you want and you are free . I think once you get over the initial shock you will see it's a new adventure and You are gonna make the very best of it. I know it will be a hard adjustment ,but you have friends here to help you out. Use us. Stay with your quilting, it is wonderful therapy and don't loose contact with us . Keep your head up ,smile and say to yourself every hour . I AM A Better Person and I will Succeed. Barbara (((((((((((SUPER BIG HUGS))))))))
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!

Is, I hope things will go better for DH family in 2013. I will also keep them in my prayers
Vivian, I am so very sorry that your marriage has come to this. I know the feeling only too well. I was married for 33 years when my husband came out with that statement. The problem was that I was bedridden at the time after a bad fall, and couldn't get out of bed without help. I remember laying there thinking- Marriage is supposed to be for better or worse and to be a helpmate to your spouse in the bad times, but here he is saying he doesn't want to do that, so there is no real reason to stay married after I have busted my backside helping him meet his goals in life and always being his cheerleader. It was a tough time but when I was able to go back to work after 4 1/2 months I never looked back and did so much better without him. I am fairly friendly with him now and he has told me that it was the worst decision he had ever made (and he has made some doozies since then) . It will get a lot better, but I know how tough it is right now. You are in my prayers for having to go through this. Just know that we love you here. Come for support any time. ((((HUGS)))) Ginny
