Dear NG:
I get a real kick out of the comments you all make and really wanted
to contribute.

The other day, I had a mental meltdown and decided it was time for
some help, so made an appointment with a local "crazy doctor".( My
term, please don't take offense. It's said affectionately.) Severe
depression with panic and anxiety attacks.

Anyway, dd -9- wanted to know why I had to go and what she could do to
help. (She's a very sweet, loving child and a budding quilter) I
explained what was going on in her terms and she's decided that for
mom to get over her "crazies", we need to plan a crazy quilt. She's
going through my stash and has come up with the laces, satins and some
velvets. I think this is going to be a great mother/daughter project
and maybe something positive will come out of this trying time.

At this point, I'm trying anything! :}

Sounds like as good a way as any to cope....I've got one of those coming
on, and have decided it's time to Quilt For The Inner Child....so am
contemplating matching kids' pattern flannel quilts for self and 40+
year old teddy bear.<G>

When all is said and done there ain't much more comforting than
flannel...something to wrap up in and eat chocolate ice cream and watch
vintage cartoons.

Megan...a 40 year old teddy!!! Ohh..how wonderful! Please give him a hug for me and one
from my faithful teddy companion, Theodore, who will be only 12 years old this Christmas
Eve. Theodore comes from Niagara-On-The Lake in Ontario and when he turned 10 my DH and
I took him back to celebrate his birthday.When we went to dinner at one of the old inns
the maitre d' pulled out a chair for him and put a napkin on his lap.The waiter served
him a glass of water while we had wine. When we were served our entrees he received a
bowl with packets of honey in it.He was given the same Christmas favor as we were.He
*did* look rather spiffy in his brown cords, white shirt, knitted sweater vest and
black velvet bow tie.He travels with me and loves quilt shows! He too has his own quilt
and we have matching hats and shirts.Actually, he has an extensive wardrobe.
I hope this little story has cheered you up...love to your teddy!

Valerie,

I hope you're feeling better and I'm glad you found the courage and
strength to look for help. Sounds pretty sane to me!

The crazy quilt also sounds like a great idea. Multiple approaches to a
problem are always a good idea, and you'll end up with both a beautiful
quilt and beautifl memories for you and your daughter at the same time.

And BTW, I don't think this is OT at all--I almost missed your post
because my newsreader automatically hides anything with OT in the
subject. (I went specifically looking for OT's and came across it.)
