hey, I miss you. I miss blogging.

hi.

I use instagram as microblog (that is, i talk about stuff, not just post photos) but there is something wonderful about the longer form of blogging. I'm coming back to it, ok? Will you be here with me?

I have so much to share. So many things I want to talk about and show you.

Here is an off-the-top-of-my-head list of things I want to blog about:

-um, that time my quilt My Brother's Jeans won Best In Show at QuiltCon. (WHAAAAT EVEN????)

-that time I won Best In Show at QuiltCon and I didn't expect the inevitable negative comments that any Best In Show winner gets. Ouch! ouch ouch ouch! Sigh. I'm ok, it was just a bummer. I have THINGS TO SAY about this. Sometime.

-but also, I TOTALLY WON BEST IN SHOW AT QUILTCON. So, you know, there's that.

-my puppies! we got another golden rescue, Beau. He and Max are the CUTEST together! and omg my Adorable Husband! so cute, right? I totally married that guy!

-I quit my day job, again. Let's hope the 36th time's the charm! 

-after wanting a licensing agent since 2004, I FINALLY GOT ONE! 

-my lifelong depression finally being managed! just feeling fine is AMAZING. I want to talk about this and make videos about it and do comics about it. It's been about 2 years now I think of basically feeling fine, which I never saw for myself. What a frigging relief!

-I've gained a bunch of weight from eating like shit and not working out and I feel yucky! I'm not beating myself up about it, I just want to feel better. Thoughts on weight/body image, etc.

-Teaching! How much I love it, where I've been teaching, new classes, etc.

...and that's just a partial list I came up with right now as I'm writing to you. So, stay tuned because I'm back in the blogging saddle and I've got a lot to say.

Thanks for being so good to me over the years. Are you still here? 

xo,

melissa
