Let’s Bee Social #27

Posted on: July 2nd, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

It’s been a rough two weeks.  And in that time, I have not sewn one. single. stitch.  Until today.  Today I will be spending time with fabric and colour.  Thread and the sound of a whirring machine.  The smell of freshly pressed seams.  And the thoughts of all my friends who have shown how much they care.

To each of you who has helped me to make it through these past two weeks, please accept my sincere appreciation and a great big THANK YOU!

This photo says it so well…

    So sorry for your loss Lorna! I am glad you are back to sewing and hope you find comfort and peace at this difficult time.

  15. I understand how hard it is to get back to sewing after a loss, even though you know it is relaxing. I still have days where I can't seem to do anything but mindless activities. I think it is because we are insulating ourselves from the grief. I am still praying for you and family to find some comfort and to focus on the good memories. Debbie

  16. Farm Quilter says:

    May each stitch you take in your fabrics also be a stitch that binds your wounded heart. Prayers will continue!

  17. I hope you find comfort in every stitch, Lorna!-Soma x

    Sorry for your loss. Life goes on even when we want to yell STOP! Treasure your memories and make many more good ones.

  25. I have been away from the blogging world for most of June, and it was so sad to come back to see the news about your dad. I hope that sewing time you carved out was a balm to your soul today.

  26. Lorna, you are the first to offer encouragement to your fellow quilters, so it is no surprise that you have cultivated such wonderful and supportive friends. I'm glad you've been feeling the love, and happy for you to get back into your studio and focus your energy into what you love \”sew\” much!
