Thank you everyone for your hugs and prayers. I really needed them getting through yesterday and this morning. Lots of crying and no eating going on. I was home by myself all day until my daughter came home at 8pm. I, of course, did a lot of thinking and soul searching. I still believe I am not ready to let go of Steve. There are some things in his life that just overwhelmed him and I didn't make it any easier and he reacted like me when I asked him to leave. You just don't know what to do so you lash out at the ones you love. I am hoping in time when our hearts mend we can at least sit down and figure out where to go from here. I would rather have him as a friend than nothing at all. Only time will tell and I believe if we were meant to be together it will happen even if it takes another 3 years to get back to where we were. Until then I am making changes in my life that need to be made for me.
Since idle hands can get into trouble (meaning I kept wanting to text or call Steve all day yesterday and yes this morning) I decided to finish up my quilt. I want to thank all of you who suggested to use the spray basting. The backing of this is the best I've ever done. It turned out fantastic! I think I like making smaller quilts better than big ones. These don't take as long. LOL
So all washed up here it is...
I had to add a little brown to the backing because I was like an inch short and I didn't want to cut my squares down because then it would look funny. I just LOVE this fabric!
I have another piece of LOVE fabric that I'm eying for the next backing of a quilt. This was a thrift store find too. Just in time for summer don't you think? I think you all know that I'm thinking Americana quilt.
I apologize for not visiting and answering each of you individually, but every time I talk or think about it I start crying. My heart is still broken and only time will heal it. I hope you have a great day.
