The Itsy Bitsy Post

A dark fog descended tonight...until I remembered what Mr.O'Quilts
used to tell me..."Just go Quilt"
Grabbing this basted top, I quilted it in one of my favorite quick styles.
It  has been sitting here for a year. It was quilted in one hour.

When the storm comes through, I cannot find the umbrella.
I start to slip....but
I am held up by...
My Naranon peeps who love me even when I fall.
My ALS support group peeps who PTSD right along with me.
My quilting friends who stay by my side.
My blogging friends who send me emails and comments and more.
My children, who wish the storm away.
My grandchildren who give me hugs.
I am one lucky son of a gun Grandma. O'Quilts.

from Brain Pickings comes this piece by Anne Lamott...speaking of course directly to me

Rosa...Thank you for the comment...pls send me your email so I can thank you properly xo

PTSD is the pits. But there are workarounds and very good coping mechanisms and while we all do our best, some days our best is more productive than others. This one was colorful and quick to the finish line. Listening to that small voice within works. And you are coping and you are healing. No one else's job is to judge your speed or timing on that healing.
You know that old saying...
I only have two speeds and if you don't like this one, you're really not going to like my other one!
You are getting better and better every day in every way. Oh, wait!! Did you eat all their Halloween candy ?😨

This time of the year is perfect for quilting . . . I'm working on one that my sister-in-law's grandma pieced back in the 1930's. The fabrics just cheer me up and put a smile on my face.
Wishing you a sweet day.
Connie :)

Mr. O'Quilts' advice is perfect. We stitch together our lives again and again, don't we? So when things start to fall apart, we have to "Just go Quilt!"

P.S. I sent you an email with my own email address. :D
