Life is Full of Surprises

Dear Faithful Friends,

The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.

My sister and I love quilting!  We love sharing our quilts, projects, and family.  It has been a wonderful experience.  The joy of sharing has added to our love of quilting.

But....things have changed in both our lives.  We are sisters, after all.  Six years separate us but we share a bond that is often described in twins.  Despite the miles that separate us, we buy the same clothes, try the same recipes, share the same likes and dislikes. When we are together, people often ask us if we are twins, though we don't see it.  And now, we share the same disease, a genetic chronic illness.

Our priorities have changed now.  Our energy has to be rationed.  To do what we love, choices have to be made.

We have made the disappointing decision to close our blog.  We are still sewing, gardening, enjoying our families and life, but on a limited scale.  At this point in our lives, we can choose to do the things we love or blog about them. So we choose to do.

We wish you all the best in your quilting and life adventures! You can still see some of our projects on Instagram (when we post!) at asisterlyconnection.
Thank you for being our blog friends!

LaDonna and Diana


  1. Oh, you're kidding! That's just the pits that you guys have to deal with something so frustrating. Having Lupus, I can completely understand where you're coming from in needing to regroup and shut down your blog. I wish you the best, and hope you find a good balance for yourselves to participate in the things you like doing as well as the things that need getting done.

    1. Thank you, Lynette! We are still learning how to pace ourselves. Man, is that a hard lesson to learn! We hope you are doing well!
