too many projects!

I have been painting walls and refinishing furniture and it makes it hard to sew or make things. I am behind in a couple of things I am working on...half done things anywhere...
Just gonna share a couple of things first.
I was officially divorced on Friday and the judge ignored our agreement that we made and ordered more money from Don. He called me just screaming that I screwed him over....yes me.... and said he is going to fight it. I could hear his hag in the background screaming and calling me names...I need prayers guys...Things like this just send me over the edge...I just said to God, "this ones for you"...I cant handle it....

My dad also got married on the day I got divorced...I am happy for him because he is so happy. After losing my mom slowly over a two year period and watching his retirement savings go to medical bills he deserves to have someone to love and to have love him.









It was a happy day!

I do have one finished project to show you.... A baby quilt...
This is for my roommates nephew....I used a very light and soft fleece because it is so hot here. Also it makes it snuggly and easy for a little guy to drag around. I have had this Michael Miller panel for seven years. My grandma bought it for me. I just cut it apart and added fabric scraps....











I made the card with vintage baby images. Then wrapped it all up with love and tulle........This little baby has hip dysplasia and his little lower body is in casts so I figure a little love is needed too....








As these projects get done, I will post more...xoxoxx melinda

Sending best wishes and kind thoughts at this time. I am confident that you can rebuild your life and 'move on'. You have more inner strength than you are aware of. You will rebuild your life and be happy again. Wonderful to see that you dad has found new love and companionship.

Sorry about the X....hang in there.

Wonderful about your dad.

Love the things you have done...don't you think it is food for the soul?

Well I am glad to hear that the judge thinks that you deserve more money - here's hoping he actually pays up!

Next time he raises his voice to you down the phone please hang up hun. Tell him calmly at the beginning of any call that if he takes an aggressive tone you will end the call immediately and that he can call back when he is calm. You don't need to hear it.

In better news, Congratulations to your dad :)

I know you're glad to see the back of your ex -- don't worry about what the judge did; I'm sure he was just trying to be fair and it's out of your hands!!

Congratulations to you Dad and his new bride. Happy Divorce to you, don't let him bully you, hang up the phone and let him deal with his own anger, he was the one who walked out not you. Praying for you.
