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.
