Marion, sometimes people don't know what to say so they open their mouths when they should have just kept them closed. Years ago when I was under a huge amount of stress some one said "the good Lord doesn't give you more than you can handle". And I snapped and said, " Then He has me confused with someone else"! I am sure she meant well but at the time it didn't help. I'm sorry for all your troubles. And I know how hard it is to see through to find some good. You have your pets and quilting so it sounds like you have at least a few good things going for you. Sending a virtual hug and wishes for better days ahead.

Geesh, Marion!! Those taxes are ridiculous. Thank goodness you had it covered. I’m so sorry. Happy 50th Birthday and congratulations on your new job opportunity. No more stress of your own business so here’s hoping this coming year is the best ever. Super happy you are participating in the swap, too. Always love your pretties!

R-Sea..
​​​​​…been thinking of you as I read the crap happening in your country, too.

The weather has cooled, finally…no more of Calif smoke..ugh! My allergies were a mess the past couple of months. After the multitudes of small projects, I have finally started another quilt project. I’ve had it kitted up for over a year so it feels good to finally work on it. Fairly easy piecing and applique so it shouldn’t be long in finishing. I will likely gift it and I’m thinking of gifting to my neighbors adult daughter. She is who I think about as I sew so it makes sense to gift to her…

You guys take care and enjoy the upcoming season. Happy Thanksgiving to our Canadian friends!!

Well Covid is still alive and making life difficult. Australia is not accepting US mail and the US has halted mail to several overseas countries. including Australia. I don't know about Canada yet.
Sooooo I have the choice to swap Marion with Rosalym which I did last time and they are well acquainted with this as over the years it has been the result.
I am thinking IF Canada can mail to Australia I could have someone mail to Marion who would then send to Rosalyn. and the other way around. This would mean I need 2 people who are willing to mail international. I would pay the difference for sending it on from Canada to Australia and Australia to Canada.

Sooo give me some feedback. Anyone willing to send to Canada?

I cried - I had saved up over $75K as "just in case" money, and now more than half is gone to taxes and I just had a vertigo attack three weeks ago, and turned 50 two weeks ago ... really hoping this year ends soon!


Hope everyone is hanging in there, doing awesome, thriving ... or just getting by day by day ... hang in there, it does get better (I think LOL)

I so understand Marion! When my kids were growing up I would remind them "it could be worse" and when I found out I had to have surgery ,my 6 ft son was walking behind me down the hall saying -- Mom It could be worse!!! I did NOT want to hear my words coming back at me! There is a time and place for that and it isn't when you are feeling down.

Concentrate on the Sunshine and look for laughter in your life to help you feel up and help you cope!!

Wishing you Sonshine and Laughter!!!

MarionQuilts, just caught up on your posts. I am crying for you. Sending hugs and good wishes your way. Thought this year was going to be better but I guess not. Hang in there, 2022 has got to be better than these last two years. Right?
Everyone, love all your wall hangings. They all look so great.
Hoping everyone is as healthy as you can be. Wishing everyone much happiness.
