Quilt With Us

I want to thank Pam for kind of putting a boot in our hineys & getting this forum alive again!  While I know there are some people who don't like to read about other member's personal lives, health issues, etc., that is partly what I enjoy.  While we are quilters, we are also more than that.


As for my family, we have had our share this year again, but things are improving.  My former SIL who lost part of his left leg in June due to a motorcycle accident is doing quite well.  He is sitll not able to wear his artificial leg as much as he would like, but he knows that he will get there eventually.  My son Corey fell a few weeks ago & tore all the ligaments away from his right clavicle so he had to have surgery 2 weeks ago to repair that.  He was always my most accident prone child, but I was hoping that now that he is in his late 30's he would have kind of outgrown that.  LOL    I am getting ready to have my right knee replaced on Tuesday.  This might sound kind of strange, but I'm actually looking forward to it now that I know how much better my left leg feels.


I have been getting quite a few things done since I won't be able to sew for a few weeks.  Here is a pic of a tablerunner I made for a contest sponsored by the Hatched in Africa machine embroidery Yahoo group.  There is also a yellow Christmas tree ornament laying on one side as that was also required for this contest.

Janet your table runner is stunning!!!!  This will set up a wonderful Christmas table, I can see the place settings now.  I pray all the ones that have had hurts and pains will heal quickly and pray that your surgery goes well.  I will be thinking and praying for you.

Janet - I'm so glad you are getting that surgery soon. It is going to be so wonderful for you to have two good knees. There will be no stopping you! LOL

YOur table runner is lovely. Let us know how you do in the contest.

Beautiful table runner!  Good luck with the surgery.  Also, you are so right in thanking Pam.  She is aa good motivator, and a great one to interject humor at just the right times.

Beautiful table runner, Janet.  Hope the surgery goes well.  I'm sure your hands will find something to work on while you are healing.  :)

Janet I am glad to hear an update on your former SIL and pray that his healing will continue.  I hope that your "accident looking for a place to happen" is doing good after his surgery.  That is the title that we had given our youngest daughter many years ago.  I hope that you will have as much wonderful success with this knee surgery as you did with the other.

I still think that is a gorgeous table runner and I just know that it is a winner even if it doesn't get one of their ribbons.
