Sometimes life throws you curve balls and you just need to roll with them. Such is the case with me lately. I was recently given the unexpected news that my husband wanted to end our 12 year marriage and 19 year union. I'm not gonna lie - it's only a month and a half later and it still is a hard pill to swallow. There are times I want to curl up and cry and there are times I feel my inner Lioness take over. I am sharing this very personal journey with you because I think it's valuable to know that not everything in life is rainbows and unicorns. You give me very personal items to cut up and sew into a quilt for you, let me into your private lives, share beautiful and soemtimes painful memories with me.....why shouldn't you know more about me?? So in the end, there are good days and bad days, but I will get through them all.

Our daughter is now almost 12 and is growing into a beautiful, bright young lady. She is my joy and sunshine and I love doing things with her. We laugh and have fun together all the time. She really is my mini-me!! My son, now age 24, has grown up into a handsome young man. I am a very proud mama of him - he has become everything I ever wanted him to be - caring, loving, realistic, good ethics and even a hint of some entrepreneurial tendencies. He actually moved back to Castlegar in 2018 because he missed it so much there! I just feel sad that he's so far away now from me - it makes visits with him that much more important.

So, now that I am faced with my new reality of being single again, I need to grasp it and own it! I have risen to the challenges so far and will continue to do so. I am a fighter. I am a go-getter. I will climb those hills and mountains and come out on top - just watch me!

With this all being said, I will be focusing a lot more on this business. I do still have a bit of a waiting list, but I feel I'll be able to work more diligently to get through it and accept more clients as time goes by. I still love quilting so much and continue to find it as a welcome escape and form of quiet therapy. So please contact me if you'd like me to make you your very own Memory Quilt.
