27.0 Pause

August 16, 2012

Please be a little understanding if I am pausing a little longer than normal here.

For my own security & safety I have to go back to moderating each comment left on this blog from this point on.  I hope you all understand.  I cannot say more than that at this time.

Hopefully soon I can show you the embroidery I did for one of my guild-mates and fully flush out a 2 year old quilt idea that was re sparked last weekend.

I am going to try to throw myself into quilting to get over some tough feelings right now.

If I find it helps, I may come back & blog & podcast more aggressively instead of less, but currently I am feeling like I really need even more of a pause than I’ve been doing.

Take care, and if you haven’t seen elsewhere, here’s a quick mosaic of a short adventure I had last weekend. The full photos are on my flickr photostream.

I only wish the sky would have been blue-er, and the balloons gave me more time in between balloons to get detailed pictures of each balloon.  But very pretty as a set too!


  1. I hope all goes well and that you can get your equilibrium back.

  2. Oh dear Darla, please take whatever time and precautions you need to feel safe. I’m sorry I’ve been out of touch for a while. I’ve been battling some bad migraines. Email me if you want to chat.

  3. Hi Darla, I hope everything is okay. We’re fine with whatever you need to do and wish you the very best. Tami in Denver

  4. Gorgeous photos! I love watching Hot Air Balloons but have no desire whatever to go up in one. At least one that is not tethered. 🙂
    Sorry to hear things are rough. I hope they look up for you soon and that we will get you back soon too!

  5. You have to do what works for you. I look forward to hearing you again when you’re ready. Diane

  6. Beautiful balloons! I am wishing you all the best. Take care and take your time. Hugs, Annika

  7. Darla, I’m not sure what you are referring to but I am asumming someone made a mean or hurtful comment. It’s too bad people can’t live by the old saying, “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”. I enjoy both your blog posts and podcast and hope you don’t stay away too long. Btw, your comment about appreciating all of us, even those of us who do not comment often (guilty me) was very touching. Take care.

  8. I especially love the pictures as a group. These are very quilty balloons! Quilt, quilt, but don’t stay off the air too long. I’m sending good thoughts your way.

  10. We love you Darla. Some of my friend took me on a hot air balloon ride for my ……. birthday. I was a little frightened but it was beautiful and very inspiring. When the burner is not on it is so quiet and peaceful. Somehow I was not expecting the peacefulness.
