About Me
Hi! I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia,a pain and fatigue syndrome.I stay at home.I refuse to give up my passion for sewing and collecting fabric.I sew when I can,and break often.I have a possitive outlook when I can.any other time,I hope and pray for the best.Fabric cheers me up even when I can't sew.Fibro is urelenting,and painful,but I refuse to let it stop me .A comfy, warm,quilt with fabrics I've chosen makes my sewing for me,or others worthwhile.
Hobbies and Interests

My pets are awesome!

Hello Krista, Thanks for the ideas on getting thru the wallet edges. The batting I used (only needed a 8" x 10-ish" piece) was Warm & Natural cotton purchased more than 10 yrs. ago. I think it is a low loft batting, but it is pretty dense. Beginning to wish I had used a low loft polyester. I will try the tricks you suggested, ASAP. This weekend has been a blur so far, but when I get back to the wallet I will keep on trying! I am sorry to hear that you suffer from fibromyalgia, and I admire you for not giving up even tho it would be understandable if you did. Give Flashette a pat and a hug from me, and keep on quilting! Thanks!

Hi Krista
I'm new to the quilting blog. I have a very good friend who has Fibro als cronic pain. I was wondering if you would want to e-mail her. She could use a friend with the same issues? Her name is Michele and e-mail is ducky1@earthlink.net Maybe she could join the Fibro group.
Thanks so much I really like this site. So many nice people. I have been quilting for about 30m years. I like all kinds of quilting. I'll look for you

Hi Krista,
Nice to "meet" you. I'm sorry to hear of your fibromyalgia, but glad to hear of your positive attitude and determination to continue your quilting. Have you ever considered trying Healing Touch for your fibro? I have done some Healing Touch for some gals I work with and they seem to feel better afterwards. It's a non-invasive alternative therapy. Maybe you have someone new you who has been trained and offers it. My best wishes to you and enjoy your quilting.
