Thanks for the update on dear Carolyn.  I do hope she can get in sooner for her procedure.  She just sounds miserable and is probably so worn down by it all.  Praying for you ((((( Carolyn ))))).

What wonderful pics!  I'm so glad to see so many of my favorite friends together smiling!!  Blessings to you Viola as you move to TN.  I'm sure you will make many more special quilting friends there too!

Did you all make Laura a comfort quilt?  It is delightful!  And it looks like it is working already.

Hi friends!  I've been doing little with my bum wrist but saw the surgeon Monday (6 wks post op) who said I'm doing better than most at this stage.  I have really good movement in my fingers and in most motion in the wrist itself.  It still isn't quite healed all the way as he can still see a bit of the break.  So I don't have to wear the brace around the house or sitting watching TV etc.  But when I go out in public and on uneven ground (Or when I feel less stable on my feet).  I couldn't wait any longer so last week I began sewing a bit on a jelly roll race style quilt for a baby quilt.  I cut all the strips in half to get more variety and put a 2.5" square between each one but now I'm not sure I should have done that.  Now I have a long narrow top.  I'm thinking about cutting one of the halves and adding to each side with a strip of the fabric from the 2.5" "stones" along each section.  Sorry...  just thinking out loud.  

Other than that I'm NEEDING to get in and clean out my sewing room a bit.  I let it get too messy...  again.  When DJ returns to school on Monday (he's been home for a couple of weeks before his summer session begins) I will try to clean up and move stuff temporarily to his room so I can reorganize and purge a bit.

We don't have immediate plans to travel to our place in CO but it is fun when David looks at the cameras he set up and we can see out front and out back to see what it looks like in the spring.  There are iris coming up in the planter out front!!

Patty, I haven't finished the email to you about leaving the Coke plates for Shelley somewhere.  But the short answer is....  yes, I think I know where you can leave them!
