Forgive me for having dropped out of sight for the past several months. If any of you were wondering where I was and if I just didn't like y'all anymore, then you can wonder no more. And if you didn't even notice I was gone, that's just as well, too

Last month I moved to Washington State (Columbia River Gorge) after a particularly difficult breakup with my boyfriend of 7 years (the male model in some of my reviews). We had moved to New Mexico together a year and a half ago, and while there it became apparent that we weren't meant to be together any longer.

Long story very short, I am alive, employed, happy, well-adjusted, and looking forward to getting my sewing machine unpacked so that I can join the club, as it were, once again. I just placed my first Hot Patterns order yesterday and can't wait to get them! I haven't sewn anything since October and the itch is returning...

Thanks for reading,
Tabitha

I like your sewing projects a lot, and bought several patterns after reading your inspiration al reviews. I'm expecting to see more coming soon, so stay busy and let bygone be bygone :)

Thank you ladiesOnward and upward, indeed.

Now...if I could just get all of my fabric organized in my new sewing room! I have a 3-bedroom house all to myself...I'm fairly certain that this much space will allow me to bring my fabric and notions stash to new and scary heights

Who needs a BF when you have a puppy as cute as the one you're holding your picture? Welcome home to PR; glad you're back.

I'm so glad to see you're back Tabitha, I was wondering last week where you were, when one of your reviews came up on the rotisserie. Congrats on your new house! Do you have the lab pup still?

Unfortunately I did not win custody of the puppy. I could hav fought for her, but ultimately decided that she was more of a Daddy's girl and that his schedule would be much better for her than mine. My new job requires a lot of travel and so I'd have to leave her in a kennel more often than not.

The breakup was amicable, just painful. He's continued to send me pictures of her, which I appreciate.

And, I've moved to the same town where my parents live. They have two fantastic dogs that have helped me to get over my various griefs. Aren't animals wonderful like that?

Thanks again for all of the positive messages! I'm really in a much better place for me, both emotionally and geographically.
