Nov 25, 2020


I've been sitting here for the better part of a week trying to come up with adequate words to tell you how full my heart is with love and gratitude. For each and every one of you. For being my friends, my family, my inspiration, my support, my guiding light, my...everything.

Turns out, there just aren't adequate words to say all of that.

Instead, I will tell you that my life is beautiful and happy and peaceful and lovely because my thoughts are now completely focused on blessings and potentials rather than grief and regret. I was trapped under a lot of very heavy things, and you all came running, lifted the lot of very heavy things from my shoulders, and pulled me right back up onto my big girl feet.

All without ever asking for anything in return except for me to just be me.

My prayer and hope is that I will be worthy of your gift and that you and yours will be safe and happy and blessed and enjoying everything that makes your own heart full.

Happy Thanksgiving, Dearies!

  19. I got a new iPad and haven’t been able to comment. I many times have written a long comment, tapped “Publish”, and NOTHING. Tonight it worked!
    I started following your blog for the stitchy part, fell in love with the Stewey part, enjoy your humor and writing, and am now praying for you to get a new kidney. I’ve rarely miss a day here over the past 7 years, and am constantly inspired by your mental strength. (I also love your organization skills :) Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful for you.

  20. Thank you Coni - for being genuine. Good times and bad, funny but sometimes sad - your humour rides out always, and the stitching and patterns are a joy.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mr JB. May it be full of peace and happiness.

  30. Happy Thanksgiving from another relative newbie. I am constantly inspired every time a check in here. You may derive strength from us, but you are a constant light of perseverance and encouragement with your own journey, aside from your fabulous artistic needlesmith skills! Hard not to be disappointed in Indie falling through, but best to be as safe as possible so you are ready when the day comes.
