Quilt Camp (Stitch-In) Supplies

A co-worker's wife sent me the bright blue hydrangea bloom (below). It is such an understanding gesture from one wife to another in the time of loss.
Balls of fabric and a rug being made of fabric strips.
One word: stress. It is not like the stress when he (my husband) was in the hospital. That was beyond stress; that was living in some alternate universe where things didn't make sense one moment to the next. This stress is from intermittant bouts with grief and anger.

Sending much love your way . . . I can't imagine the pain you are going through. :(

Hope you have a good healing time at stitch-in surrounded & supported by all your friends. Overwhelming stress wrecks havoc on your health and well-being. I hope some Thimble time will do you good.

Lovely gifts like the hydrangea are just what the doctor ordered. Best of luck with your Rosacea. It is something I battle with, too. When you get it back under control, treat yourself to V beam laser treatment(s) I did that about 5 years ago and loved the results. I hope to have a little 'tuneup' in the near future.
