I finished my first Indie Pillow inspired by those West Elm Kantha Pillow late last week! It was so, so fun to make!! I had planned to share it, along with a final post on our 'A Question' discussion this morning. I had finally gotten the chance to spend a few hours last Thursday morning, reading through each comment, following the wonderful links you all left, and writing up a final thought.
Then, decided through lots of thinking, chatting, and listening since Thursday, throughout this past weekend, and still this morning, that I need a break!
I mentioned last week quickly that I wasn't feeling that well. I had gone to Hershey Medical Center last Tuesday to see my doctor and since, honestly I've been having a really tough time with how that all went. Added to that, in just a few weeks the kids will be heading back to school. My daughter who has been my side-kick from the very beginning of this sewing, blogging adventure, will be joining my boys. And it's all hitting me really, really hard. It has always been the plan for me to attempt to make my sewing and hopefully this blog a full-time gig for myself this Fall. I am SO excited about that next chapter! But for now, I just need to take a step back. Enjoy this time with the kids, get more rest, slow down. I know I've mentioned doing this a few times here, and then I convince myself that if I just stay positive and motivated, that if I just keep going, then one day I'll wake up and I'll feel all better. Well, sadly that's not working!
That is not at all easy for me to share. Of course I'm a little scared and nervous about stepping away, too. I'm sure you bloggers know what I mean?! I know I'll keep sewing. I'm certain I'll keep buying fabric! I do still plan to put together a tutorial for this pillow. I'm sure I'll still pop up on facebook and here to check in throughout the next 4-5 weeks. I also have a new fabric giveaway scheduled each weekend, along with a few others as part of some special blogging events. Please don't forget about me!!
Thank you all for your understanding! THANK YOU to everybody who is kind to me, this blog, and my sewing! I'll miss you!!
