My Happy Place
Hi, all. I understand this will take the place of PDA's. I tried to stay away from the Quilting Board because this new format is so confusing to my feeble mind but the withdrawal was even worse!
Here I am in a nutshell (any place I live is a "nut" shell! LOL)
I love sewing whether it is quilting, garments or crafts. I have been sewing since I was seven years old even though I did get away from it while raising my son. For the last few years I have embraced machine embroidery and digitizing my own designs. I love designing my own quilt patterns using EQ7. My biggest fault is having too many ideas going and not completing them. I confess I am a fabricaholic and would have to be as old as Methuselah to use what I already have. Having acquired my stash while I was working was a good thing because I am now disabled and don't have to worry about buying very often.
Life as usual has handed me some challenges recently with an impending divorce after seventeen years and more medical issues that have arisen. I received the news of both on the same day! It was almost more than I could bear and I brought both of them here and received the most wonderful encouragement, friendship and love. I am finding that I am more resilient than I first thought and have decided to take a proactive stance regarding both issues. On Monday the 14th, I will be undergoing a cardiac ablation procedure to correct the abnormal rhythm I have developed. I trust the Lord will bring me through it just fine. Following that, my attorney has some paperwork for me to review and approve and by December 12, I should have a clear title to me again!
Once that is resolved, I am hoping to be approved for some income-based housing that is being constructed and should be available by the first of the year.
So, now that sounds like I have it all back in control, doesn't it? Wrong! I have decided nothing is really in my control and am trusting God to guide me through this ordeal. I must say that coming to know so many of you here and seeing your battles and how strong your faith is has inspired and reassured me, in particular, Billy and Debbie Umphress.
Well folks, guess that is all about this nut for now. Now back to learning how to navigate this place. God bless and keep you all.
