All Is Well


Life is, if nothing else, all about change.
I've been writing Cactus Needle for several years, and have loved every minute.
But, I've been involved in a new love that has moved to the forefront in the last few weeks.
I've had a few BIG LEADS in my Family History.
Amazing!
Gripping!
Addictive!
And a little quilting has been going on in between all of the excitement.
I will share with you when I can catch my breath.

I noticed you hadn't been around for awhile - glad it is just a new interest :) My husband went through a time of going through family history and found it very gripping also.

Glad all is well Nedra! I was wondering where you were. Maybe a trip around the world or something!
But this looks very exciting--keep us posted!
And this is why we all need to keep journals.

Genealogy and quilting seem to go hand-in-hand. I've also been working on both. The genealogy research is just as addictive as quilting - and when you have a breakthrough on a mystery! Wonderful.

Yes, it's wonderful to find information about the past, isn't it! It is so exciting. I did the same a few years ago. I look forward to hearing about what you would like to share. :)

Exciting! We just found another Mayflower ancestor this week...it's so great to get new leads and make the connections!

That is so exciting Nedra. My mother-in-law's grandparents came from Italy in the 1920's. She knew her grandparents and her great-grandparents' names, but was not able to learn ANYTHING about anyone else in Italy (even after visiting the towns in Italy where they came from) until starting 6 months ago and it has been SO EXCITING. We have loved learning more about these Italian relatives., It is addicting!
