I am so moved, so wonderfully lucky and incredibly grateful for all the supportive and caring comments on my last blog post. I was very overwhelmed by the warmth and concern I received, I really did not expect it. I feel very blessed to have met such amazing people. Please be assured that I am seeking help, I will get through this but at the moment it is hard and sometimes seems impossible. Your words have made a huge difference, I never thought I would say this but perhaps if all of you like me I should really start trying harder to like myself.
On a lighter note I am please I still have the ability to laugh, a lot, thanks to a wonderful spam comment on my 'blue' blog post. Me and my husband had a very long chuckle to this one:

Oh the irony! At least I still have a sense of humour!
And I also still have amazing things coming through my letter box, lucky me! Earlier this week my AMAZING mouthy stitches tote came from the very talented Nicolette.
But wait, there is more! I think I possibly forgot to mention that I joined a new bee?! I am in Bee a Brit stingy with some of the best of British bloggers and we decided to kick things off with a pincushion swap. It wasn't secret, with each of us making for the person in the month after us, but we did keep what we'd made a secret. Now mine has arrived I can show you my stingy pincushion!
I made this for Jan, using the tiny pieces cut off my HST when I was making blocks for the Aneela quilt. They were sat in a pile with the trimmings next to my machine and it seemed a shame to waste them, next thing I knew I was making a teeny tiny star block, I think it ended up about 3-4" across. And imagine my delight when a couple of weeks later Jan made herself a machine cover also using Sew Stitchy!
My pincushion was made by Lucy, lovely lovely bff Lucy and she knows me oh so well
I have also been sewing lots this week (my output seems to increase in proportion with my dropping mood!) but I'm saving that for another day, suffice to say Fractured qal is finished, my liberty mini is finished, I made some patchwork chair pads, two phone cases, a Christmas table runner and a bunch of + and x blocks!
