I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas.  Zoe had a wonderful Christmas program at school and wore a dress I made her last year for valentines day.  I felt sad I could not have made her something new for this year but it was just one of those years.
As I have posted in the past, my sister was battling brain cancer after a successful fight with breast cancer. The brain cancer took her long before her actual death, as her mind was not clear.  Somedays we had good times and she could comunicate, other days were not so good.

So, now I find myself faced with a challenge and that is getting back to doing the things I love.  Which is sewing and sharing sewing. 
One of the steps is to get back to blogging, so I can share my love of sewing.  I had no idea getting back to the sewing machine was going to be so hard.  I think part of it is, I have just lost interest in so many things.
I will not let sadness control my life!!  Monday is the day I have set aside to get back to the sewing room and hopefully share the time with all of you.  Learn to do more with the blog so I can also share what some of my dear friends are sewing.
Maybe this step, will help others like myself.  Maybe you have gotten away from what you love to do and need a path back and together we can make that journey.


  1. I will keep you and your journey in my prayers.

  2. I know it is hard, Nonie, to face what brings us joy, especially after we have been dealing with sadness for so long. It just doesn't seem right somehow. But it is. The good Lord put us here to be fully human and that means using the wonderful gifts we have. You certainly have the gift of sewing beautiful garments. It is what you are meant to do. Remember, there is a season for everything. Maureen has been your season for some time and you have so succeeded with that challenge. Now it is time for another season. I know you will come around to this when the "season" is right. It will come. Prayers continue and may you find joy in the gifts the Good Lord gave your,,,,,,Bunny
