Hi everyone, I am back after quite a time away

Hi everyone -- it has been awhile since I  have posted.  I have been knitting up a storm on Knitting Paradise and have opened another workshop section, much like Learningfa with quilting.  I still haven't touched my sewing machine since Rob died -for some reason  I have lost heart for doing art quilts.

We have had a very heavy three years, but FINALLY things are starting to look up.  Pat is doing very well, thankfully, and so am I so  life is so much better than it has been for the last 4 years.

I am doing a lot of designing and am teaching a coat of many colors cardigan, as well as a top down waterfall top  both my designs.  Also going to be teaching a crochet afghan workshop in the new year.

I am keeping busy with the new section.  I learned with the quilting forum(learningfa) that people are anxious to learn and people are willing to teach, and there is a place to put both together.

It is nice to be back and I hope to drop in more often.   Not sure how this new blogger works, but will likely be able to figure it out.

Bye for now,  Shirley       http://www.knittingparadise.com

Shirley, I found KP a few weeks or maybe a month ago and I just love it. I bought some yarn from a member (hope it gets here soonest :) ) and have loved seeing the pictures of what people are creating. Thanks for participating/starting/working at KP-see you there.

Time seems to help with beginning to heal what reason cannot explain about my only sister's sudden death at 49, just four short years ago--yet, the entire world has changed and will never ever be the way it was before. Walk this journey slowly; know you are not alone.

Thank you for your blog.
