I know I've been absent for quite awhile now and haven't given any updates or an explanation to what's been going on and really need to do so. First off, I want to apologize to everyone for my absence and lack of communication. It's inexcusable, but I want to work hard on changing all that.
Awhile back someone I cared deeply for passed away. Trying to deal with that and some other personal issues I somehow lost myself. I hurt people around me who I care about and struggled with communicating properly and with my creativity. My days and weeks melded together and somehow what only felt like a few days turned into months. I wasn't staying in touch with friends, DA or even my husband properly and realize now the mistakes I've made and how I was hurting other people. I do see now how I should've handled many situations differently, I can't do anything about it now except to apologize and do whatever I can to make up for it, repair relationships and to do things better in the future. I really do love my sewing and crochet and it's amazing how much of a stress reliever it is. I just wish I realized that sooner.
As you all can see I'm not very good about talking about personal matters like this but I wanted to let you all know what's going on. I love this community and the friends I've made here, I appreciate the support so many have given me and want to be able to fix the mess I've made and continue to learn and grow.
Thank you so much to everyone who has commissioned me, for being so patient and understanding even though I left you all waiting far too long without any word. And thank you to all who have supported me and stuck with me through everything.
