hi dot. i follow several groups of which i am not a member. enjoy the posts, the photos and all the fun stuff in different groups. the FIUP group is one such group.
reading there this morning and saw your post re: recent health issues. i was so distressed to read what you have been going thru last few months. i always told my son as he was growing up, don't worry about me, there are soooooo many far worse off than i am. this spring summer i have been dealing w loss/grief..dh surgery etc...and have in recent weeks just fallen into such a deep well of self pity. i feel so blessed in my life...even w all the pitfalls the path has been strewn with. but, still, this past several months just seemed more than i could hold up under.
reading your post, i am humbled and reminded of one of the many things i tried to teach my son as he grew..and that i seem to have forgotten. there is always someone who has been given more to deal with, and more difficult challenges than we.
bless you for your strength. i hope your challenges and health issues are lessened and improved ..or are improving. prayers are w you.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
