Hi All!...I have spent the whole day in my recliner!...I must have pulled something wrong when lifting 8 bottles of water into my trunk yesterday..anyway, I greased up my neck with Deep Heat, wool scarf and took a pain pill...finally after 6 hours, I am finally getting relief..yahoo!! Good to see you back to work, Grampz...you do beautiful work! And Barbara, you are right, the 1/2square triangle are a pain to work with...they stretch so easy...I keep telling my self that I need to learn foundation piecing to get more accurate results..
Great news Ruthann...a new machine!..you deserve one! ...perfect timing.."Merry Christmas"!

I usually get apretty good night's sleep. The cats get me up earlier than I'd liek and many days I don't 'take' a nap. It's more like the nap 'takes me. LOL

Grampz your pinwheel looks great. 1/2 square triangle blocks are so usable in so many ways.

So you got a new machine, Ruthann? That will be really nice for you.

Marianne i take a sleeping tablet every week may miss it some weeks it so i can get some sleep i do occassionally nap during the day

I would love to have more sleep but not slept well for years that why i got sleeping tablets i don't want to get hooked not that i could as my doctor had said when i first got them it was just a one off prescription but now i get the 28 tablets & they last around 6 months & so i told them i only take them once a week so they will issue a new prescription each time

Hugs Janice

Oh janice, I don't know how you can function on such a small amount of sleep, I must have 8 hrs or it affects me.  but I have had poor sleep myself over recent months because of a rotator cuff problem with my shoulder, so have been a bit grumpy and slow because of lack of sleep, hope your metabolism doesn't need so much sleep, I wonder if u just get used to it.  have a good day too, I love your memos each morning, they do give me a wakeyear wakey, thanks.
