Onward and Upward!

I apologize for my recent absence. As a couple good friends know, 4 weeks ago this Wednesday, DH informed me via telephone we were to be no more. The first days after that I was devastated, much less being able to pick up a needle and focus. But time passes, yada yada yada! So I'm packing my life, and moving it to a neat-o torpedo little apartment in Waxahachie.

The Big W is a wonderful town just down the road, lots of history, and most of the folks I know. It has a great library (historic building), super bead store (Bead Barn) and quilt shop (Common Threads Quilting), all within a couple blocks so I continue to not need a car. YAY!

Truthfully, I find myself a bit excited about this new turn in my life! I have been given a generous financial settlement, and I have received some help from another quarter. My Treasure has graduated from high school and is making college plans. I will have the chance to work with my fibers and fabrics full-time, in an extra room at the apartment (I got a two bedroom). AND, I already have some chances for a local exhibit and marketing opportunities. It will be a challenge, but I'm looking forward to it!!

So wish me luck! And stay tuned...although I'll be moving on the 15th, I'll be working like a fiend inbetween.

Be daring! Be imaginative! And I'll be back!!

Your positive attitude will take you far and it is possible you will achieve more now than in your previous situation - good luck with adapting to a huge change
