I don't know how you're even functioning after losing your husband! Was it sudden, or had he been ill? When I lost my dad I was a zombie for a long time. I couldn't do anything! I'm worried about my husband because he's 50, overweight, smokes and has a family history of heart disease. We take advantage of our youth and then it all catches up. Anyway, I'm sorry for your loss. Was it helpful to go on a retreat? I jhope you'll post some pictures soon! I've never been on a retreat before.
Have you thought about joining any of the groups? There is one for handquilters you may be interested in.
Happy birthday, Marilea~I hope you have a wonderful day!
I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside, Oregon. I came here because I'm in a very small town and there are no guilds or quilting groups, and I wanted to meet other quilters. I joined several of the groups and that really helped; everyone is so friendly and helpful!
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and happy birthday!
