So I've reached a point with this blog where I'm so behind on sharing things, I don't know where to begin each day. There's new quilts and fabrics and dresses and bags and more that are way too good not to share, but they require time from me to write about each of them and then more time in the busy daylight hours for me to photograph each, as well. I blame having to turn the clock backwards and losing that extra hour of sunlight for part of my missing posts here, but honestly I'm moving in slow motion these days. I feel so tired all. the. time. The long Quilt Market trip, combined with all the emotions that came with having my Dad's Memorial right after, along with some health issues I'm currently dealing with have completely drained me of energy these past two weeks. Feeling this sluggish plus guilty from not returning from my amazing trip hitting the ground running & ready to work needs to end, so I'm coming clean today. I'm tired. While I don't want to go into too much detail, I want to share that I recently had to stop taking my Thyroid medication to prepare for a Nuclear Scan I have to have later this month. If you look up the symptoms of Hypothyroidism you'll see what I'm dealing with. It's not fun. And I think knowing that no matter how this test turns out that I still have to have surgery is getting to me more than I thought it would. This has been an incredible year. So full of amazing blessings, personal and family achievements, so many dreams come true, and I'm so grateful for each of them. But with all the good, there's been a whole lotta bad. Most days I feel the comfort of knowing you can't have one without the other. I know life is most always bittersweet. But sometimes I get overwhelmed by the hardships, and I think this is just one of those times.
I know that sharing this little bit here will make me feel so much better. And so will indulging myself to a day of sewing up simple & sweet pillows for my sister. Off to do that now. ♡ Maureen
