Let’s Bee Social #252

Posted on: December 5th, 2018 by Lorna McMahon


Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

Christmas is coming. And the Sew Fresh Quilts shop has been a busy place.
In all the six years since I started this blog in December of 2012, I have not shared a lot about my personal life. Mainly because this is a quilting blog. So I blog about quilting. And also because this blog is my happy place and I want all my visitors to be happy. That is another reason I did not talk much about my personal life. I was not happy.
I am now.
And we are working together on making this our new home.
Things are very different. But they are very, very good and….
I am having SEW much fun!

  1. So glad your heart is happy!

  2. I am so very happy for you! Beautiful photos! Have a wonderful day sewing today.

  3. I'm glad your lives have taken a turn for the better. It is really hard to make difficult decisions and it's easier to just stay in a bad situation. Good for you for taking control of your life and making a happy home for you and your children. Blessings to you all!

  4. Hi Lorna! I am so glad to hear that life is very, very good. {{Hugs}} I can't think of anyone that deserves it more. I imagine your creativity will really amp up now that you can let the bad go and open your heart to all the goodness! It will come spilling out of you, having been pent up while you focused on other stuff. These pictures are delightful. Christmas is definitely heading our way, and I wish you a very Merry one! Happy Happy Wednesday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. I'm glad that you are happy – it has been a long road for you. Hope all works out well for you.

    Hooray for GOOD life changes! Sometimes it's so hard to move away from a bad situation just because you feel like you shouldn't give up when you have so much time invested. I hope your holidays are magical and full of joy!

  7. Jayne says:

    Music to my ears Lorna! I'm so happy for you and your family. We can get in a rut at times and not even know just how unhappy we are until a change in life comes along. Having happiness in your life changes everything and it shows in many different ways!

    This post makes me happy! Lorna, over the past few months you sound like a new person, and that comes across in your typing <3 And I've quite enjoyed your fun Instagram and Facebook posts. How awesome that Austin is able to help you with photographing your work!

  9. Hurrah! Your efforts to rebuild your life are bearing fruit. A partner in life is good, and a talented son is good, Being creative is good. Gratitude in all things is good. Count me as one of your close internet friends who prays for your happiness. You make a big difference to me! Happy Holidays.

    Add me to the list of \”We're happy you're happy\” followers! I think sometimes relationships turn bad so slowly that we don't remember what good was and then it doesn't seem like it's possible to fix…I don't know this from personal experience, but have watched friends and family members deal with really bad relationships. So glad you've found someone to value you because you deserve it!

  20. Awesome to hear! We are celebrating with you!Make sure that Mr. Chad treats you like the Quilting Goddess that you are!Hope you have a wonderful season full of light and love!

  21. Sending you a great big hug! So happy to hear that good things have come to you. Have a Merry Christmas.

  22. Linda Bick says:

    Dear Lorna,I’m so very glad that you’re happy now….you’ve made so many of your faithful followers so very happy over the last years. I’ve been inspired by your beautiful patterns, completely enamored by your selfless giving of your quilty knowledge and tutorials. Life appears to be a roller coaster ride of sorts! I know I’m on it too… I wish you a very merry Christmas and a very happy New Year!Hugs,Linda Bick

  23. I am so glad your life is better. Tell Austin he has done a great job making your blog post so festive!

  24. Emily says:

    I am so glad to hear that you are happy! It really comes through to your readers! Your stockings look great.

  25. Best wishes in your new relationship. I recommended your pipe quilt to a friend who is married to a plumber.
