You ladies are great!!!! Funny, I am on Face Book, with people who are my "friends", but I would never get the same sort of support from them that I do from you. Thank you. Must be a quilter thing.
Anyway, today was a little better than yesterday. We made some progress. Mom picked out a pattern and fabric. She even started cutting strips. She did get frustrated and yelled at me....either because she didn't understand or I didn't explain very well. I've been quilting for so long that I forget how far I've come.....I'm self-taught, so my teaching technique may not be the best.
And, yes, she is on medication, but her new psychologist said she should be able to get off the meds...so she has taken it upon her self to start decreasing her dose. I don't think she's ready for that yet, nor should she be doing it on her own.
I hate to admit this, but alot of the time I really don't like her. She's VERY judgemental and opinionated. She has to comment on EVERYTHING- from the way people drive to the local news stories.
I came to the realization earlier this year that I do not need her approval and so I try to ignore those comments, but it's hard when they happen so frequently.
On a more positive note, The Girl has made great progress with her baby quilt. She completed 12 blocks today. I was able to snap a picture (she really didn't want me to)...I will try to get some up later....not sure where I packed the camera cord. I'm really proud of her. I don't think she's caught the quilting bug yet, but maybe she will someday. I am proud to be her mom. She is smart and funny and more importantly, she is kind and caring.
I've probably rambled long enough....thanks again for "listening".
