He wanted to make sure that I moved forward in life by going backwards.
In other words, even though I had to quit blogging, and quilting, and teaching and designing... he wanted me to promise him that I would return to it again someday.
So I am working on that. It will take time. I have so much to do with his passing. And I am now a single mom of a very sweet 8 year old boy that finally needs some attention from his mom. He has been sent over to spend at least half of his life at his sister's house...which is fine, he loves it there and they love him.... but it is time for him to return to mom. Full time. (Well except the fact that I work 5 days a week and he goes there.)
Five days a week. Here is the dream folks. I want to come home more. I don't want to work five days a week. I REALLY want to be home more. So... I am bringing Ms. Hillbilly back. She won't be the same Ms. Hillbilly you saw before. But hopefully, a Ms. Hillbilly that is changed for the better. I won't be rushing into anything.
If you are in my EPP free design group... well, guess what? The plans are to start publishing those free patterns again.
I have more excitement up my sleeve. And this time I have people helping me out with the computer end, the tax end, etc. We've got this folks. Let's bring Ms Hillbilly back.
I have to rename my business. I am thinking " Ms. Hillbilly Quilts. "
Not sure yet, but maybe.
Anyway. watch for it.
PS. We are doing ok, Stephen and I. Really we are. Jerry's suffering lasted for 8 years, with this final year being the absolute worse. He endured so much. He is fine so we are fine.
Ok, see ya soon.
Ok, see ya soon.
