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.

I've been feeling quite good so I decided to take a break from physio and see how I do on my own.  I went down 2 sizes in pants but my top is still the same.  I hope I can still do my exercises and eat healthy by myself.

Still machine quilting the Easter Egg quilt but the end is in site.  I've cut out strips for the binding already.

What a great idea for placemats, holiday one side everyday the other.  Wonderful idea for Meals on Wheels, think I'll contact them in my area and offer to make some.

I have a craft fair coming up next week, Sept 21, another on Oct. 12 and yet another on No. 2.  I have been busy, busy, busy at the sewing machine all day and doing the hand stuff in the evenings while watching TV.  I have been going out about once a week to Joann's  when I need a few things.  I have been making use of my coupons, daughters coupons and anyone else who is willing to give them to me.  Hubby is afraid someone will accuse him of running  a "sweat shop."

Riana, those placemats look good!  They are fun to make.  I'm going to make some too for Christmas.

Zoe, glad you were assertive! 

I'm making placemats for " meals on wheels" organizatikn in our nearby town. They've requested single placemats with Christmas theme one side and " every day" subject on reverse to include with their special Christmas Day delivefy. Such kind souls.

Mary I love those calls, funny how they know more about us than we do.

Gail, I am so glad you had others there to advocate for you and that you got the right type of help. Setting is hurting me, so no sewing till the pain is better. 

Thank you Elizabeth, it was not fun.

This whole ordeal made me realize how much control they can have over you if you have no one to help you. I have no one here but my mom and she is unable to drive, so she was concerned how she too would manage. I have called the hospital to talk about the ER doctor. I have also realized that it seems from this end that none of my family ( nieces or nephews) will be there for me. If this seems to be a pattern, then I will leave what I have to a dog rescue.. in time.

On the topic?  Just got a telemarketing call confirming that I was suffering from pain in my back and lower knees.  I'm going to worry about my lower knees all day.

Zoe,I  am so sorry for your awful experience.  I had a similar one several years ago.  I fell at home and couldn't move my self to a chair or really off the floor.  My husband tried to get me up and couldn't.  He called my daughter and grand daughter to help. They managed to get me to a chair and called 911.  ER doctor saw nothing on the x-rays.  They tried to send me home, I couldn't even get into the wheelchair. I made them call my orthapedic doc, he saw along crack in my femur so I was admitted and transferred to a therapy hospital for almost two weeks.  I was not able to put any weight on that leg for almost two months and was hopping around on a walker.  The up side was there wasn't much I could do but sew.  It was a pretty productive time for me since I had a good excuse for not doing anything else, like house work etc.

It can be impossible to make people believe in your pain. 

Zoe, hope all is well now.  No more electrical work?
