What this group is about

I don’t know about you, but I have too many things started. Join me in my quest to get finish what I’ve started. The deal is, for every 2 projects I finish, I get to reward myself by starting something new. You can make your own rules, or give the group ideas for new rules as we go. I think it’ll be fun to ask this group for advice on what project to wrap up next, show my progress with photo’s, get motivation from each other when I want to break my own agreement (trust me, I am weak willed when it comes to new projects).

TUFO - means Tuesday UFO - those of us interested try to make a small dent in whatever UFO we are working on. Tuesday is simply the day the Connecting Threads gals get together to sew and craft...you can make it any day you like, but we got a kick out of the title. Once in awhile we can't make it on Tuesday so we move it to Wednesday - yup WUFO. Report here what you are planning to work on, then the next day, let us all know how you did. Nothing is required, it's just for fun.

Trevi, you might want to send a message directly to the moderators.  The link to do that is in the paragraph above the message board on the main page.

Are there newer instructions for posting a quilt show.  I followed the instructions with the link on the main page and failed twice.  Anybody can give me a clue.

Thanks Marge.  Basically from what I was told, the more near sighted a person is, the greater risk they have of getting a torn retina.  As we age we develop floaters, which are tiny clumps of gel or cells inside the vitreous that fills our eyes.  Since people who are as near sighted as I am have eyes that are more football shaped, we have a higher risk of these tearing away in a larger section.  If I had not gotten in to see the dr when I did, my entire retina could have become unattached, which would have resulted in blindness in that eye.   Thanks for the positive thoughts for Louise.  I still have not sent her quilt to her as I need to find a box large enough to ship it in.  Her kids are 11 & 16 so hopefully they are helping her out around the house.  The 16 yr old will be 17 next month & she has her own car so I know she has been taking her to her chemo treatments if our son is not able to.

How scary, Janet!  What causes a torn retina?  I didn't know that something like that could happen unless you had a direct hit to the eye.  I am so  glad that you have had surgery and are doing better.  Positive thoughts coming your way for complete recovery.  Take care.

Also sending positive thoughts to Louise for her cancer journey.  I so badly hope that she will let others do for her now during this time  She is not a Super Woman and does not need to try and be one.  Hopefully her kids are old enough and considerate enough to really help her out.

I managed to get my next UFO basted today & hope to get started on the quilting tomorrow.  My original plan was to do this on Sunday, but ended up with a torn retina in my left eye that happened just as I was getting ready to start the basting.  Needless to say, that was postponed for a few days.  I had emergency surgery on Monday, but that dr was not able to repair all of the damage so another dr finished fixing me up yesterday.  It is getting better, but I can still see the black spiderwebs all across my eye.  It happened with no warning whatsoever so needless to say, it was a very stressful situation!

Thanks Amanda.  Now I just need to find a box large enough to ship it in & get it on its way to Louise.

Beautiful quilt, Janet, I am sure it will be a comfort.

Comment by Janet/MO on July 10, 2016 at 3:26pm

Thanks Marge & Trevi.  Louise is definitely a person who puts a lot of emphasis on having a spotless house, kids involved in lots of activities, worries if she gains half a pound, etc. so this is going to be a hard thing for her to deal with.  Fortunately, our grandkids are old enough to help their mom as our son has to travel out of town for his job quite a bit over the next several weeks if she will be willing to let that happen.

Ditto all that Trevi and Marge!

Marge said it best, wise words for all women facing a crisis.  And of course, we all know, a quilt made with love helps tremendously.
