I'm Still Here!

Hi! I'm here! I haven't disappeared off the face of the Earth!

This past year was a big year of transition for me. However, no matter how overwhelmed I've felt, I've greatly enjoyed taking a break and seeing all your progress. I have a stack of finished blocks, and things have settled enough for me to pick up my needle again. I should have some more progress to share soon.

I'm hoping there will be another project after this one (hopefully, after the new year! LOL!)

Love seeing those finished projects! Keep it up!

Hugs, Elisa

We are all waiting to see what you have done Elisa. Sewing is very therapeutic - it really helps me get by sometimes.

Elisa, I too have been in a kind of hibernation and have finished some blocks and hope that before long I'll be ready to get back into the SAL again.
Thanks for putting into words what I have been feeling (almost)
hugs
