Storms and Stitching...
A Fresh Day...

Time Out...

Hello out there to all of you, especially all my regular readers who have been on my journey with me for a long time now. Many of you in blogland have become my dear and valued friends over this period of time. I cannot begin to express to you how much each one of you individualy means to me. Thankyou.


Thankyou to all of you have been wondering where I am and if I'm okay. I know I have let you down in many ways, especially seeing as the tutorials for 'Down In The Garden' are not up yet. I am working on them and wish they were done, my apologies. I beg for your patience.

As we all know, life is never perfect, and I have always made a committment to bring to you the best and most positive aspects that life has to offer. When I am not feeling positive I really struggle to make you feel great too. This is why my notes to you have been, well, absent.

As I go through a difficult personal time I just ask that you know I will be back.

To you, my friends,

Leanne Beasley xxx

Dear Leanne,
I hope that you will soon live better days.


Thinking of you!


Take care and take all the time you need.

Dear Leanne - Inner strength is something we often see in others, and don't realise others see it in us. We see it in you, and know it will help you through the difficult times and bumpy roads. A warm hug from one lover of fabric and thread to another.


Sending Big Hugs..Take Care


Leanne, I have missed you - please know that I am thinking of you and sending lots of warm wishes.

Hi Leanne,

Take care of yourself, I hope things get better soon.

Hug, Sharon


Leanne, I don't know what to say that has not already been said. I will also pray for you and your family. My Mom and Grandma are always tell me that God does not give us more than we can handle. At first when they would say those words to me I would get kind of mad. After all they were not the ones going through this I was. Then one day my beautiful son who has tourettes looked at me and said those same words. It was all I could do to hold back the tears. Living with someone with tourettes is not so easy sometimes. I feel so bad when I can't help him. Anyway my point is I now believe those words are true with all my heart. In fact when it has been a really hard day for our family those words are what get me through it. So I say to you Leanne hang in there God does not give us more than we can take. Julie


We haven't met Leanne but I am a regular reader of your blog. Take care and take the time you need. Love to you and your loved ones.


Oh Leanne, you're such a gorgeous person, and I hear and feel every word you say (or write). The quilting community loves you and supports you and are grateful for all that you share. Please just be kind to yourself and maybe re-read your verse in the middle of Down in the Garden. My MIL is going through a tough time at the moment, and as she loves and finds solace in her garden I actually thought of making her something with your little verse in the middle. take care, Michelle xx


Life is not always as smooth as we should wish but I hope that you will go through this rough time in the best way as possible. We miss you, Leanne! Take care


Hi Leanne, my grandmother used to say to me..."may there be just enough clouds on your life to make a beautiful sunset". Take care and God bless. Lana


Please, take all the time you need and take care !!

Hi Leanne
I really appreciated your honesty in sharing the valley in your life at the moment. Take each day as it comes and I pray you will have the courage to face each one. Don't put pressure on yourself. I received my registration for the workshops in NZ today and am so looking forward to meeting you. Can't wait 'til June! Big hugs.

Don't feel you are letting anyone down Leanne - we just miss you! Whatever is causing you heartache at the minute will hopefully be resolved soon. You are a truly inspirational lady and I love reading your blog and delight in your fantastic creations. As they say in all good Westerns -'chin up little buckaroo!' xoxo


Take good care of yourself.... that is what matters!



Hi Leanne,

I hope your bumpy road smooths out soon. Just hang in there....
A saying on my fridge is
Take one day at a time
When thats too much
Take it hour by hour
When that too much
Take it minute by minute
and before you know it
You made it!! :]
Best Wishes

Leanne,life can throw difficult things at us from time to time, hopefully this 'bad'time will soon pass & I'm hoping 2010 brings you more good times than bad. You beautiful Graham Thomas roses in the lovely red jug bought a smile to my face, it's nice to see even in the 'bad 'or 'difficult' times you still take time to smell the roses :-)


Sending hugs to you Leanne. Take time and take care. You are a very special lady.
