I can clear out one small space at a time in the room I am trying to unpack.  

Just say the word and you can have help!

I think maybe you need a bigger house where are you going to put all that stuff?

Judy, I don’t mind helping.  I have taught this so many times I have all the short cuts...well, on this one I should probably say I understand the wordy directions!

I so appreciate your willingness and experience!  You are mighty kind my friend!

Your mystery quilt looks great!  


From: Judy (DJZMOM)


Wow, you are really thinking and planning how you will use each space in your new home well.  It may look and feel a bit like "Hoarders" now but it will be so wonderful as you move along!

what you're saying is that you have a sewing HOUSE with some space for a bed.  And maybe a kitchen & bathroom.  :-)

Excellent way to say it!

You should take Patty up on her offer to help unpack (and Sharon too).  When I moved into my house I had somehow hurt my back, two compression fractures, Patty offered to come up and unpack my sewing room.  I was amazed that someone I hardly knew would do that.  But quilters are like that, best people in the world.  I dragged up a chair and sat in the hall outside of the room and got to order her all around.  I loved it!

Hi Carolyn, and everyone. Gosh I didn’t realize how many days I haven’t logged on. 
well I had my other hand surgery done on 
July 22. Boy it was so much more than the other hand. I have been having trouble with the casts. 
they put the first cast on at my 1st follow up. It was to stay o for 2 weeks, I was back in 7 days in so much pain, come to find out the pin was caught on the casting material and was on a nerve. They took it off, and pulled the pin out. 
they put in another cast. Less than 7 days later I again went back in awful pain, they took off that cast too. He said I was just having a reaction to the casts. I felt it was more that with 3 different surgery sites. Side,bottom, and thumb the cast was just to heavy and tight putting pressure right on one site or another. 
thankfully he said let’s just put it in a brace for the last 3 weeks, and then we can start physical therapy. I am VERY happy. 

in 24 hrs I have regained feeling in my thumb and I can move my fingers together, bending up and down. .    It still has a long way to go to heal but I feel about 1/2 as much pain and feel hopeful for the first time since the surgery a month ago. 

 I’m so glad to see everyone is hanging in there and just want to agree about the lack of interest in sewing and things.  now I might be able to think clearer, I still am working with 1 hand lol, but That I can handle.
