Dearest Quilting Friends, Today is a REALLY bad day for me. The lump in my throat is only getting larger as the days go on. It has nothing to do with flu, cold, etc. I think it does have everything to do with Mom being 92 and me being 58 (or 9, don't remember and don't care) and spending 24 7 in this house for far too long. My world is pear shape and I will resume posting the second block with picture tomorrow. I just need to pull myself together today. Sorry.

Melody,

Don't let us be the source of your stress.  We each have our life to live. While is is made more comfortable with our friends here on QCA, you are still doing a volunteer position.  Even if you feel you need to take a month off I am sure we could easily rally and keep each other amused for that.

Take care of yourself first, your mother second and we will be here with smiles on if you need us.

Melody, being 58 on my way to 59 and having my 87 year old mother here living with me - I kind of know what you are going through - I am in my own home though - although I have been very much displaced since she moved in with us - it is difficult to say the least.  I am confronting a whole different kind of problem then you are though - but I do understand and my heart goes out to you.  I have said a few prayers for you to day and hope that soon you feel those warm wonderful arms enveloping you so that you know you are not alone.

We are in no rush for the next months blocks - heck we have 28 days in the month to do them - so take some really deep breaths... We truly care about you here - HUGZ!

Hey Melody, sorry you are having a bad day. There are times that I jokingly refer to as my "pity party" when I am feeling down and just want to cry (and usually do). I do have to tell my husband though so he won't think there is something he can do to make me feel better. Sometimes you just need to cry you know.  I am looking out my window at the nasty weather we are having and if your weather is like ours that is enough in itself to get you down. I guess that is where the term Winter Blues came from.

As far as the BOM goes, it can certainly wait. If I remember right it did not take everyone to long to make there blocks so there is plenty of time for that when you are in the mood.

So take care of you!

Dear Melody,

Don't despair about the quilting group. . . .quilting goes on forever but Moms don't.  Take care of yourself and your mom.  We will still be here when you can come back.

Thank you guys for understanding. Just a funk moment. I can relate to those of you who can't figure out the ins and outs of posting, uploading, downloading pictures, etc. Also the construction of these blocks can be a challenge but that's part of the Quilting Bee, to work on things we may not do normally. I love the openness that we have here. Today is a better day!

Love in a mist http://www.quilterscache.com/L/LoveinaMistBlock.html This block has lots of half square triangles, HST. I followed the directions on the site and found it challenging. You may have an easier method of making and putting these together. Please share if you do.
