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.

marcia ...what terrible accident! i am so glad you are recovering. head injuries can take a long time to completely heal. i worked in a "head" unit for a few years. many patients w injuries like linda's ..and many from falls like yours. take care of yourself ..give your body the help & time it needs to heal completely.

ta-DAAAA !!! i claim first ice fall of the winter :) accolades are in order !! lollol i did dumb thing wednesday morning. had a small gate valve burst during 17 degree temps during the night. sidewalk coated in ice, sleepy brain. not up to full operation yet, turned & stepped to go around & check the other valves. the nanosecond it takes to fall on ice always amazes me. my wrist is still a little swollen and hurts a lot more than usual. but did temp fix on other broken gate valves --i use them to connect drip lines to, i hadn't winterized the faucetts & hook-ups yet, then nxt day the guy came out and blew all down more water in lines to cause problem & now i don't care how lo the temps go! :)) this morning at 6a it was 6F lollol

Marsha, how awful.  But glad you are on the road to recovery and pray you continue to improve every day.

Oh, Marcia! God Bless! Glad things are improving for you. I always wonder when a person is writing for a while. What an ordeal! Take care of you.

Hello everyone - I'm still here- have kept up with all of you and have loved seeing all the beautiful quilts you have made.

When we were in CA the middle of Sept. I fell and hit the back of my head on a sidewalk - severe brain concussion.  I was in intensive care for 6 days and on a general floor for 4 before they let me come back to AZ.  Wow - I was totally out of it.  I don't remember falling, the first week in the hospital.  It will be 8 weeks tomorrow and I am finally getting better.  jI am still a little dizzy when   I stand up, I can't smell or taste anything, and don't have a lot of stamina - but thankfully I am better.  I can drive a little now but I can't stand to be around a lot of noise.

I have been working on the San Diego Chargers quilt for my son and made HSTs for the first and last time.  Wow - I should have known that my brain wasn''t ready for that because I kept getting them in the wrong direction.  So after a lot of ripping, ithey are where they are supposed to be.

Linda, we had a dear friend who had the same procedure your brother has had and he was sent home the day after as well.  It is a simple surgery and he should be fine. 

Mary - love your house.  I can't believe the gov. is metering wells.  I think that is terrible.

Riana - when to you start the trip to Florida?  Is this the first time you will be going there?

I know all of you on the east coast are having bad weather - please don't any of you slip and fall on ice. 

It is good to be back.

Rogue - I have raynauds too plus neuropathy in my feet. No more bare or stocking feet...must have shoes or slippers. With all the arthritis in every joint I'm miserable at this time of year. Thank goodness I have one of those body heating pads I can wrap up in.

Hugs...stay warm.

mary - just showed your house to the hubs, "wow!" he said. we both thought the solar panels great. the our county, not sure if statewide, has i stituted metering of private wells. ours was drilled in ’83, so we & any drilled prior to a certain i'm not sure when, are exempt. thank goodnes! our snow pack last winter was in bad shape till the late spring snows brought pack up to deter the need for rationing. we have been promised snow for last several days but all we're getting extremely low humidity (dew point ZERO!) and temps 20 degrees below normal for time of year. but ...if we do get any snow, we'll blow any extra down your way! :))

dee - i feel for ya! working out changing some little broken gate valves for my drip lines that froze wed morning ..ouch! i had turned off the main calves, but the system too large to drain adequately & guy hadn't blown my lines yet. and like you, when i finished i came in & cranked up the heat, threw the wet gloves in the dryer & ran tepid water to thaw my frozen fingers (raynauds syndrome). and, of course, hot cuppa!

linda - prayers for your brother. i agree w riana, better to recover at home surrounded by loved ones than in a hospital full of strangers & stranger Bugs.

 Very nice house, Mary. Is that a fruit tree in the front and another one in the back?

Comment by Mary Moore on November 14, 2014 at 8:45pm

If there is sun, we don't have to run the generator for electricity, a real savings.   With water shortages, ( snow packs in the mountains) Governor want to put meters on our wells, so we do need more snow and rain.
