I am still here........

I am still here.......
I think.
its been over a month since I last posted here on my blog.  time really does fly by.  I would love to tell you all that during my absence I have been sewing up a storm, but that isn't the case.  it has only been the past few days that I have gotten back to my machine.  somehow life decided to take over and change my plans.

on July 2nd my grandfather passed away.  he was 98 and had an amazing life that impacted not only his family but his community and everyone around him.  he will be forever missed and never forgotten.

we said goodbye to him on July 9th and later that day I caught a flight followed by a couple more and ended up in Orlando, FL.  a work trip but a little bit of play was added in as well.  while I was there I got to celebrate my birthday with a great group of people.  I came home a week later and I am just now feeling somewhat normal again.

the past few weeks have taken its toll on me.  I am extremely thankful for my close friends as well as Superman who have been there for me through it all.  they have given me strength as well as a shoulder to lean on.
Many Thanks go out to them.

I am now hoping to return to our regularly scheduled program.....  sewing.  like I said above I have been back at my machine and I will be sharing soon what I have been up to.

also, my machine and I are taking a trip this weekend to go spend some time with Tula Pink.  I know I am sort of still freaking out about it.

Ohhh, the ups and downs of life. So glad your next up is such a good one. I hope it comes close to balancing out the recent down of your loss. xo
