Time for a reality check in the social media world of clean empty work spaces, clothes that get sewn in half a day and still seem to fit perfectly and quilts that go from cut pieces to finished bound masterpiece in under six months.
Much of my time when not doing usual day time work and parent/family stuff is currently being spent supporting a relative who is suffering with dementia. I am sure many of you have being through this and know what a difficult place it is to be for all involved. It's not an issue that can be quickly solved; it is an ongoing, ever-changing situation with constant challenges. I'll still be posting my weekly Farmer's Wife 1930s quilt-along posts along with my monthly nine-patch sponsor selection but anything else may be a bonus. I don't especially like to live my life beyond the sewing machine on Instagram, blog, Facebook etc. so this is just by way of explanation. I'll still be here - sewing keeps my mental state on the straight and narrow and is a place where I don't have to think about medications, mental health teams and what I can do next for someone who is obviously suffering. But, if you've emailed me and I haven't got back to you, it may be that it got swamped in other emails and you'll need to get in touch again.
