Sorry,that I haven’t posted in long time.Life in general has taken over. A lot has happened since I last posted.I have been working a lot.My mom is in a relationship with man that loves her. My oldest daughter moved out . I have finally gotten my Chloe back. My brother and his girlfriend moved in.We are all supposed to be taking over the mortgage. That has been a bumpy road .
I have been making memory bears for my oldest daughter. Her Bio Dad committed suicide in November.I have been making bears for his side of the family. I was in car accident also in November. I wasn’t hurt,but my van was. I can still drive it,but can’t afford to get it fixed.
I have been painting a lot. I have sold a few.I have put my paintings on Esty. No bites or nibbles on that.Even on market place no buyers. I have been struggling for while.
I wanted to make a gift for my youngest daughter. Mind you,that I haven’t really sewn in a year.I have been collecting Harry Potter fabric.
I decided to make her a quilt. She is also a Harry Potter fan.Since,she loves Slytherin,I figured why not.I figured that,if I got it done early it would be her Christmas gift.
I was kind of funny,because she saw me sewing this quilt the whole time. She has no idea it is for her.I took me about a week to complete it. The back of the quilt is fleece.I decided no to add batting.
It has been a long time since I have posted anything…
In May, it will be a year when I lost my Dad.I go to work and come home .I totally lost my passion to sew.I feel so lost.I have so many ideas in my head,but my mind,body and my heart won’t connect.Is it normal to feel this way? I have so many projects and fabric around . I won’t budge to touch it.It is bad enough to work in a fabric and craft store and have more ideas pop in my head.
I felt more comfortable making the second bear…I like the plaid…This time I made sure the nose was at the right spot…Next is making overalls for the bear…The hard about making the overalls is that I am using my Dad’s jeans…
