Yay, I'm over on Abby Glassenberg's While She Naps podcast today! I'm always nervous when interviews come out, afraid I will have said something dumb! I just listened to it and I think I did ok!
I did this interview last week and it was super fun. We talked about my new fabric line called Yummies.
We talked about how much I FREAKING LOVE teaching people how to make faces in fabric. (affiliate link to my book)
We talked about my quilt My Brother's Jeans winning Best In Show at QuiltCon 2016.
We also talked about depression --- and that for the last two+ years mine is well managed for the first time in my life! In the podcast I kind of 'come out' for the first time publicly that I'm on antidepressants, but the thing is I have been on them for years! So it's not just that that has made the difference between being depressed (even while on antidepressants) and feeling... Normal? Fine? Ok? Happy?
People keep asking me what has changed and I am going to finally write a post about it --- I didn't talk about it on the podcast because it's kind of a whole story so I wanted to address it separately. It makes me sad that so many people are still struggling and in pain. Depression IS SO HARD. If my being open about my struggle and being on antidepressants and the thing that made all the difference can help other people feel less alone or be willing to do what they need to do for themselves, then I am all about it. Post about this coming in the next few days, ok?
