Getting Back on the Horse!

My Lower Than The Limit Quilters blog, is where I intend to share overcoming obstacles when I try to find sewing and quilting time. 

Inviting blog friends to share their thoughts on obstacles.

Overcoming not being eligible for a free AccuQuilt "GO!".

Over coming having a new business changed into something completely different than it started out to be, by the co-owner, so now it doesn't even resemble the original business.

Trying to find new ways to approach any kind of handwork in a less stressful way physically, after two wrist surgeries.  Very difficult when sewing and handwork is your personal therapy, relaxation and source of income.  I have sewn since I was 4 years old. I made a lot of my own clothes starting at 10.  Started sewing and doing alterations for actual customers at 14.  Taught sewing in a local fabric store at 21.  Starting quilting at 30.

Over coming very sad feelings of a friend sitting at my dining room table and copies my pattern notes then going to Appalachian Quilting Party and teach a class using my pattern.  She only asked if she could use the pattern for "one" church raffle quilt!

M'liss Rae Hawley has encouraged me to dig out my notes and get back to work!

Victory #1

Well, I have over came a hurdle, my lack of the coveted "GO!". 
I told my dear sweet hubby about all the bloggers that got the "Letter", and he said "So just order the one you saw on Ebay". 
Cricket Quilts has all kinds of GO!s and dies on her Ebay store, at great prices. 
Now all I have to do is resist attacking all the Fed Ex trucks that drive by the house, until my "GO!" arrives. 
Now I am only limited by the dies that come with my "GO"!
They will be enough to keep me entertained for a while.
I will be passing out Joanne's "GO!" fliers, with dies marked, to any one that will be buying me a Christmas present.

We didn't have 100 "FOLLOWERS" and couldn't be part of AccuQuilt's blog list. 
Did we love AccuQuilt less?  NO!  We are only "FOLLOWED" less, according to our side bars.
If you would like to know who really needs followers, check out the blog list on the side bar. 
If you are one of the rejected let me know and I will add you.
Please, also, be a "FOLLOWER", never know when we might need that count for something.
