The past several months have been full of what seemed like limitless uncertainty. I'm happy that things finally seem to be falling into place, or, the options now seem somehow more manageable. I have a new place to live, I can sink deep into the comfort of a job I love, and soon a new routine will give life shape again. Once I unpack and set up a new sewing space (I'll be joining the ranks of kitchen table quilters!), I may even have time, space and emotional energy to post stuff again.
If you also feel the need to grieve the end of my marriage, please do so, but I will ask that you respect this space and my process. Most days I do not feel sad and I have dealt with a lot of the anger that comes with this change. Your expressions of regret and "I'm sorry"s really don't help me much. Your kindness, attention and support on the other hand, I don't know how I'll get through the future without them. I love this community and have missed its comfort. I went through incredible emotional upheaval but didn't feel comfortable talking about it here until now. I look forward to sharing all of my healing quilts and using both the quilting process and the act of sharing them with you to help me along the way.
Comments are open but I probably can't reply to all of them. If you'd like to contact me by email, you are welcome to do that too-- jessunderquilts at gmail
But please be patient with me, I just moved this past weekend and I've got a lot to juggle right now.
Thanks for being with me through this.
p.s. Oh, and.. I got a cat.
