Hyperbole, or not

Well...I am so not Van Gogh or Edgar Allen Poe....Although we just might have craziness in common, they were able to put their angst into creativity while I can not.
It is pre-cuts for this wounded soul...blah blah blah.
Guess I will save the top for some upcoming non quilting baby.

Next, I took out these to work on, but there were very few so I put them back in the box and took a nap.

Yesterday morning I had an appointment with Social Security re: the death thing.
Then I was off to the dermatologist for two biopsies:
A ruptured cyst and a black creepy mole...both of which came in the last month.
I bought five quilting magazines and am just wandering around the house.
Plain done in..
I am emotionally and mentally and physically exhausted.
 Good post on grief today by
Made by a Brunette
And now a call from Aunt Brandy, that Dylan ate a berry he found on the trampoline that was in bird poop?????????????
Just take me away................

I love reading your posts. They are so real! Just some hard difficult days but yet full of life and adventure with the grandchildren, quilting and friends! You are one special lady with a gift for expression and writing! You keep keeping on when things are tough! And then you eat Oreos. Enjoyed seeing your wedding pictures. Hugs to you!

I am glad to know you are seeing to your own health. Keeping you in my heart re: ruptured cysts & weird moles.
No harm or shame in simple, assembly line-type patchwork. It occupies the hands & the mind & can create something someone will love.
Take care of yourself, dear grieving widow.

Simple quilts are great, sometimes you just want to hear the sound of the sewing machine and to be able to push fabric through. Naps are good too, of course you are exhausted. Just take each day as it comes.

"It takes as long as it takes." This is something I've known and said for a long time. It was good to read it in the heartfelt piece "Just a Brunette" wrote on grieving.
Dear heart, keep sewing. The stitch has gotten me through some very rough times, albeit none as tough as you're facing now. Your strength comes through in your writing. Keep on, dear friend. Keep on.
