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.

Comment by Ginny Andersen yesterday

Glad to hear you are home, Mary, although I am sure you are having mixed feelings about it all. It is such a helpless feeling when our best efforts aren't enough and it is so wearing on us to watch our loved ones struggle and hurt. Rest up! Sounds like the right people will be there to help her now. 

Comment by Linda Koller yesterday

Oh Mary, I'm so sorry to hear that. My mom broke her knee cap in 5 places about 4 years ago. The therapy was hard on her. Unfortunately, she never did regain her strength. I think she kind of gave up. It will take those tough love nursing friends to get your sister to do what she must. The therapy is not easy.

I love the food fabric in the second photo and the pumpkin fabric in the first photo!!

My sister's kneecap was broken in three even pieces, she has not been able to put any weight on that leg for the last six weeks.  I think the therapy is really going to be rough.  I am not the person who can get her to do things, but she has some great tough love nursing friends.

Zoe, I can fussy cut the size you need.  I will need and address to send them to.  Mary

Mary, glad you are back home again.  I understand your sister's pain, but you have to work your way through it.  I have had both knees and one hip replaced so I know what I'm talking about. The therapy is very painful, however the end result is great.  There were days I could have punched my therapist in the mouth, but the final outcome was great.  I hope she gets through it okay.  Believe it or not, the hip was the easiest one, oh wait, maybe that was because I was 20 years younger.

Zoe, Will try to find my fruit and veggie fabrics, and take some pictures to post to see if they are different from what you have already.

Mary, I am glad your sister will have home health come in. Knee surgery is very hard, some people it takes months to regain the ability to function as they had. If she uses a rollaider, help her find one that has 8 inch wheels all around- my mom found the one that Medicare provides is not any use. If needed too, you or she can hire visiting Angles to come in and help her. Glad you are back home.

Mary , your sister was lucky to have you...but you are right to look after your own health. She will get along fine with help. Otherwise, she may be better off in a place with " assisted care" available. It may be a tough decision.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on Sunday

Glad you are back Mary. I wondered where you had disappeared to. Get some good sleep and thoughts and prayers for your sister.
