A Little Time Off

Makizy Sews will be on a hiatus for a while. I usually try not to dig too deep into personal, non-sewing related topics, but this is unavoidable.  My mom passed away suddenly just before Christmas, and keeping up with blog posting has been at the very bottom of my list these days.

I hope to return some time in January. Sewing has always been my creative, (mostly) stress-releasing activity. To me it also represents a return to normalcy. After our move back in August, I didn't feel settled in and "normal" until I was able to set up my machine and start sewing again.  I really hope to get back to doing what I love soon and also feel joy in sharing my projects. I'll be quietly lurking the sewing blogosphere, admiring everyone's creations.

Until then, hope you all have a good new year and I for one am hoping that 2014 brings much better things.


  1. Debbie, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. I'll be sending good thoughts your way, hoping along with you that 2014 is a better year.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear. Please know that the pain will never go away, but one day you will smile instead of cry when you think of her,

  3. Debbie, I am so, so sorry to hear this. I'll be holding you in my thoughts.

  4. Thank you so much for your kind words everyone.
