Quilters and divorce

Quilters and divorce seem an odd pairing of words.  This is not about anything current in my life, I am happily married to the love of my life.  I am very lucky but life was not always so fortunate for me.

Years ago, I divorced my first husband.  At the time, I read several books about divorce and one was written by a fellow quilter. (This was 1996, we read books then instead of doing an internet search.  Yes, it was a long time ago.)  One message I took away from the books was make it fast, this might not seem long to you but it's a lot of time in your children's lives.   And keep all your quilts.  As a result, I protected my girls and my quilts and was divorced in five weeks.  This all came back to me when a fellow blogger was asking about our reactions to a crazy Huffpost article about single parenting.  I am a blogger for her today and you can read that post here.

rezdNo quilt pictures today and my post is actually on another blog so I will at least give you a little quilt chuckle.

No matter whether you are married, single or 'it's complicated' I hope you always Sew Happy!

    My passions are quilting and sewing. Add to that French, Spanish, books, swimming, travels, new restaurants, yoga and chocolate and you have me. All of these are best shared with family and friends. Except for chocolate, don't touch my chocolate. You can email me at QuiltingSewingCreating@gmail.com
