Yes, it's been quite a long time, but life happens and it doesn't always happen the way we hope it does. At any rate, I've missed this place but I haven't missed reading a single post the rest of you have put up. I follow about 400 creative sewing folks, so I haven't missed anything except time for sewing.
I have retired and need completely different clothes than before. My next post will start there.
If you're still here, thank you.
