hello, again

After almost a year and a half break, I've decided to blog again. It's been quite a journey and finally feel like I'm settled. I've moved again....this time to a mother-in-law apartment on the ground floor of a new house with my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter and grandson in the main house. It's not easy living in such close quarters with my daughter, but is well worth it to be close to my two sweet grandchildren. Downsizing again brought on a new bout of depression which required me to see a therapist for several months to get a handle on it once again. This time I feel more powerful and have tools to keep myself from slipping again. It feels good to be totally involved in life again.

I'm quilting again. Currently am working on the wedding quilt for Greg and Sara that I started over 10 years ago. I'm hoping to have the top pieced by their 10th anniversary in about 3 weeks. I think it's doable. Jannaeah has helped me become involved in a quilt guild in Vancouver, just over the border in Washington and has also gotten me to go to an Open Sew group at one of the quilt shops. There are places for 6 people every Sunday and I go at least every other week. I'm loving being with other women who quilt and am inspired to continue to work on and finish all my UFOs.

That's probably enough for today. Hope to write stories of my life here as fodder for my scrapbooking hobby.
