I don't even know what Junker Jane is.  But I can tell you that your art is amazing, and I covet that skill!

My gosh...You guys have no idea how moved I am today.  I...always knew that Craftster was a HUGE support group. 

But the outpouring of support you guys have all shown me is...pretty overwhelming.  Thank you all so much.  Really.

O.O  I...don't really know what to say.  I appreciate the kind words and support so much! 

I definitely plan of crafting more.   My therapist hinted at "maybe you could take up painting or something..." and I laughed and told her about the "craft hoard".   So now, my therapist demanded it.  If you've dealt with therapists, you know how they can get.  Smiley Argue with them at your own risk, because they will call you on your BS in a heart beat! 

It's been hard to "admit" to having PTSD.  It's still pretty "new", and I am still adjusting to it, so to speak. I must admit, though... Once it was said, it clicked and made me think "oh!  So that's what it is...why didn't I see it for myself?"

I am so...glad? that others are out there, chugging away and able to keep going.    It makes it a little easier to know that I can do that, too. 

You all are amazing!

Thing 1, from yesterday is not complete.  Somehow, I successfully have 6 huge totes of fabric, a broken sewing machine and no fusible webbing.  So, that will become Thing 2, instead. 

In any case my NEW thing 1 was completed on day 2.  It's the dreaded year too late WIP I spoke of.

Okay, so the Abbie has a long and depressing story with her.  The tl;dr is that I was hip deep in making her when something happened.  Upside:  I got a diagnosis.  Down side:  I am permanently banned from swapping.  But that's okay.  Because I now know WHY I kept randomly having problems completing things in my life. 

Here she is, a year too late, but done:

Hi all.  I am super proud of this.  You see, about a year ago, I was part of the Second Chance Swap. 

Aaaannnd...I botched it.  Life is complex for me, sometimes, and I never really knew why.  Well, right around the same time that I had this 3/4 done, life did the thing that it does for me and I just...stopped.

I had this completed to here:


Well.  I was diagnosed with PTSD shortly thereafter. 

And I have sat there and stared at this completely pathetic 15 minutes worth of crafting, feeling terrible about myself, for about a year.

This morning, I finally did it.  It won't change the fact that I am permanently banned from swapping.  It stinks, and it stings. But, it's for the best.  I know that I have not, and most likely will not, be a reliable swap partner.  But, at least I now know why. 

Here's to always moving forward. 

Here's the final product.  I'm proud of her, and proud of me.
