Quilting Bee #46
Good morning all! I thought I might have my friend come by again and offer up some of her delicious fare. She can make you about any hot or cold thing to drink you can think of..latte, chai, tea, granita, Italian Soda, smoothie..you name your poison! She also makes the most delicious bagels and cream cheese..with almost anything you can think of on top! So step right up and place your order!
I have racked something different today..we are working on the edges today..finishing up our quilt full of changes. So glad you came today..Please pull up a chair and join me.
The Quilting Bee has been on my mind for a couple of weeks now. I feel like it is lacking punch of late..needing something more..something different. Sometimes I think my muse is telling me I have played this one out and it is time to do something different with this time with you each Monday morning. Would you like to see this morph into something new..different..a different format..ideas..hmmmmm...I need some input here. Are there subjects you would like to offer up..or ask me something? Tell me what ya think!
So..the other thing that has been on my mind this week is the subject of support. Do you have it? Do those around you in your life support your ideas and creations, work, you? Or do you struggle along with your own soul keeping you going as others around you try to break you down? Who is your support group..do you have folks that you can be brutally honest with? When your day goes to hell in a hand basket is there someone there to hold you up and make it better?
I have an amazing support group here online..women and men who offer me happy dances and whoots when I succeed, a soft place to land when I am hurting, an ear to let me vent and a shoulder to let me cry. I am thankful daily for you folks who support me up. Honestly I am not sure how I would function without them. So when I loose one of those folks..I take it hard. I miss Renee...I truly do. I miss her words. There are some who would say..well you never met her for real. Well...I will tell you..it felt real to me. I am as invested in my friends here as I am in the outside world. Sometimes I feel more myself here. What ya read and see here is what ya get. This does not mean I am lost in cyberspace and not functioning in the real world..I do that every day. Honestly I function pretty well out there. I have friends I treasure and folks whom I see daily. Some are inch deep friends an some are mile deep. But my support system is mainly here.
I often wonder if I would have gotten so far with my artwork and blogging and photography if I had not had you all! Well seriously..I do not wonder..I know. I would not have. It is simple and clear to me. This amazing group of folks has kept me honest, and on my path. With encouragement and honesty, love and friendships that I treasure. Friendships that I want to nurture and grow. I find that as my artwork is more successful and my muse demands I stretch and grow in new directions..I have trouble some weeks keeping up with everyone..I hate that. I don't want to be one of those bloggers that posts and then never has time to visit. So..I have been working on my organizing again. Always tweaking that. Because to be honest with you..I don't get a huge amount of support out here..which some days saddens me. So when I say you all are precious to me..I mean it! You are a gift to me every day! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
So today I am asking you if you would like to see the Bee go in a new direction..or maybe I need to offer up a new concept for Monday Mornings. Would you like it to keep the format it has now? Let Fly folks..it is a request for some honestly!
If you would like...you might also share with us about your support system!
Thank you for coming today and being honest with me!! I love it when you come..where shall we go from here? Hugs and love, Sarah
