No Posts for a long while....

While I was never great at posting lots, I did post and manage to have quilt related information. But time has come in my life, that things need to take priority, and quilting and blogging at the moment have feel to the wayside. 

There is a lot of personal baggage that is making its way into my life.  Either from people that I love, or have loved, or from being distracted when I should have not, which has all mounted into one large situation that needs to be dealt with in a way that only I can do.  Its time for me to reevaluate what is important at this time in my life's struggle and face these challenges face on.  Its time for me to grab the bull by the horns and take control of my life back, which for sometime has been, for lack of a better word, out of control. 

Things in the past week have changed, both who I am, and what I want to do with my life.  I have realized that life is short, and life needs to be fun.  I need to do what I want to do, and if that means telling people how I really feel, and moving on, whether it hurts or not, this is what needs to be done.

Never fear!  I will be back, in time, I need to heal and work through some things.  The healing process has already started.  It also means that quilting will play a role in my healing and dealing with what my life choices have caused, it also means a new direction, a new artful direction.  More painting, more sketching, more ART.  It's what has helped me this far, and what will continue to help me grow, as a person, as human, and as a person who is learning to love again, loving myself for who I am, sickness and all. 


  1. Jay, just go ahead and do whatever it is you need to do to be happy. People who care about you will understand.....and if they don't, maybe they are part of the problem. Your blog readers will be happy to read what you write when you feel like writing it. Take care of yourself and be happy.
