I thank you

Just a quickie to thank you all for your thoughts and feelings.
I've been learning a lot about myself
and I'm okay with having the odd rubbish day.
I have grown to like my own company over the years,
which isn't bad...
I have learnt that by not confronting your fears
instead of making yourself feel better
you just exasperate the problem.
I hope by talking about these issues
I am able to help some of you come out of the dark.
I wouldn't say I'm giving up blogging
because I do love to share my quilt reveals with you all,
I may be a little intermittent.
As you can see I have reached the point of no return with this quilt!!
Hopefully I shall blog next week 
fingers crossed for sun.

I really do appreciate the time you take to comment,

Is there life in this old blog yet?

When you've been blogging so long that you cannot remember
how long you've been blogging,
I think its fair to have unblogged moments...
The blip in my blogging has coincided with a blip in my mental health.
Although I am gathering myself together
I am realising that living my life online has consequences
that lead me away from reality
making me less inclined to leave the house.
I understand that we dip in and out of this world,
I've just spent far too long dipping in...
I know that I can't be alone with this issue
I also know that its not healthy for me.
I'm not really sure where I will go from here.
I am active still on Instagram
 (apologies again for those that aren't)
Quilting is keeping me sane....I think?!
That and meditation and breathing exercises
which I'm discovering via the free app destressify.
If you've been suffering with anything
be it mental or otherwise
I really recommend giving this a go...
its changing the way I think.
I'll leave you with my current sewing efforts xx

Thanks for listening and take care of yourselves xxx
