If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Hi Barbara,

Thinking about your brother, Dave.  I hope that the miracle is there today.

Comment by Riana Noyes yesterday

Elizabeth, your wonderful sense of humour will bring you through this. Good luck to Doug in his meeting, and here's hoping those painful shots do the job. 

My sewingroom is in upheaval while we sort out water issues in the next room. My baseboards need to be removed to air & dry out the lower area to prevent mold. The contractor can't start waterproofing the outside until all this crappy snow is gone for good!

Barbara, this will indeed be a very long night for your brother. Let the doctors be guided by, and your brother be touched by the Great Physician.

Praying for a miracle, Barbara.

Comment by Barbara Hughes yesterday

Here are two texts from Dave that I've sent for him..."Can you contact all the people praying and let them know what's happening and thank them from me for their prayers. Let them know that at my lowest times I could feel their love through those prayers." (That was yesterday)Today, my friend,  Martha, asked how she could agree with us in prayer. I asked Dave what he wanted me to tell her..."You can tell her if I don't get a miracle tonight they will remove them tomorrow. And if that doesn't happen pray for good rehab so I can work."In case I didn't tell you,  it's his dominant hand - his right hand. We appreciate your prayers.

And I thank you also.

Hi Linda,

I guess it wouldn't be worthwhile to give me a couple of needles just to give me 5 more.  Haha!  I have had a cortisone shot in my hip but it sure wasn't like these needles.  So I stretched out on our sofa in front of the T.V. and slept on and off all afternoon.  No quilting today.  The pain killer helped and I ate a nice dinner.  Tomorrow we go to see Hubby's surgeon at the hospital.  I kind of wish the Dr. would give him a needle so I could tease him. LOL

Comment by Linda Koller yesterday

Oh Elizabeth that sounds painful. Don't they numb the site first?

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips yesterday

Hi Riana,

Your zebra is really cute!  I went to see my surgeon this morning and she told me that the scar tissue is really thick on my operation site.  I have to massage it hard twice a day.  She also had the resident give me a cortisone needle in five different places on the wound.  She told me it would be very painful.  It was.  I tried to be brave.  I was quiet (except for one swear word) but the tears were rolling down my cheeks.  I have a very low tolerance to pain.  I will get 2 more treatments in the next 2 months.  I hope I'm not such a baby next time.  It is such a nothing in comparison with what Barbara's brother must have to endure.  But  I could hardly wait to get home and take a Tylanol 3.

Barbara, This is a sad and scary event.

Hi Carla,

Atkinson Designs had a book out years and years ago with easy quilts and Happy Hours was in it.  I've made it twice.

I've machine quilted a quilt for my Bestie that her daughter made and then forgot to finish many years ago.  I sewed on the binding and now I have to machine sew it down (no hand stitching).  I'm also going to make a label for her daughter to fill out.  There has been a special place in her living room waiting ages now for this quilt. Haha!
