Ohai! Remember me?

It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?

The short version of a long story is… after my Mom died I kind of fell off the quilting wagon. It both was and wasn’t because she was gone, but since this is the short version of the story we’re not going to get into the specifics.

I made a very brief comeback two years later and released ‘The Wave‘ which was as simple and basic as you can get.

Then I stopped quilting again.

I think I’m ready to come back to it now though.

I’d been thinking about it for a while now, and then I had a health scare last week which made me decide I needed to spend less time working and more time with my family and enjoying my hobbies.

So I’m dusting this blog off (and oooh boy, but that’s a lot of dust!):

and I’m going to stick my head in on my favourite quilting mailing list to see if there’s any life to be resurrected there… and then I’m going to get back at it.

I promised my daughter that the first task on my table would be finishing a quilt for her, I’d also like to do the quilt in memory of my mom and re-create the spring mystery that got lost in the great screw up of 2012. But we’ll see, I’m going to play it by ear for a while so I don’t get overwhelmed and stop again.

Oh, and the absolute very first thing I need to do? Excavate my sewing table. That’s it waaaaay in the back there…

Tackling that is on my to-do list for Friday. Wish me luck! LOL
