I've just started blogging too. Have patience and perserverance. I joined Oct. 6 and have just finally finishe the set up on my blog. Your background picture isn't showing which means you probably forgot to do a save when you uploaded the file. I did it many, many times. Like I said it takes perserverance. Welcome to blogging. Once you get the setup, you'll be fine. One day at a time. Good luck!

Elizabeth.  Your quilt is very nice.  I too believe the "thank yous" will come later.  My new Daughter in Law waited almost a year to send hers out because she was waiting for the photographer to complete her photo order to include a photo in each thank you.  No excuse in my book, I agree with you.  As soon as you receive a gift, a thank you goes in the mail.  She could have always sent to photo later as well.  In the "olden" days, if we borrowed a cup of sugar, an egg, flour, etc from a neighbor, it was promptly returned two fold.  Yes, those were the days of appreciation.  Today's youth are not being taught the same values as we had.  Don't give up on them, they are OUR future.  Keep praying for them.  I'm sure we were different from our parents too.

I'm fortunate to have a wonderful daughter in law who is extremely well trained & she did send out the thank you cards within 2-6 of the wedding.  She also "helps" her husband (my son) to remember birthdays & Christmas cards/gifts for his side of the family!  She's a keeper.

I agree with Dennise that many children aren't being taught the same values as we were.  If you haven't heard from them within 6 months, I think I'd send a note asking if they received the quilt!

You do not know how lucky you are Elizabeth... The quilts are beautiful

Elizabeth said:

Spud, I DO know how lucky I am.  I am one of the few people I know who not only gets along with my siblings but ENJOYS spending time with them.  I credit my mom for this.

Yep, that is a blessing. My kids are that way they love being together, but my siblings and my husbands are a different story...Sad!

Thank you Sandy for giving me the time to stay home and quilt!  I've had a project on my sewing table for the past three weeks, and can't seem to find the time to sew!  I guess it takes a hurricane to help me!

Thanks, Elizabeth, while I do not have anything drastic like CRPS(not sure what it is), I still have back aches, IBS and arthritis so I can understand how bad you feel, alot worse like me!  But you are so right, others are out here and you'll feel better soon, I know.  Prayers coming your way for some relief.

i'm so sorry you are going through this.  i hope your pain goes away soon.

Linda said:

Believe me I know what pain is having been thru a car accident that almost took my life, but I'm still here. What is CRPS? I know what IBS and learned to control it with diet,but I also have arthritis and fibromyalgia. I'm feeling your pain. My prayers are for those in constant pain that includes you. Think positive...I found that to be the best policy next to prayer. Hugs.

CRPS, is Circutory Regional Pain Syndrom, a relativly rare disease.  It cause pain in the affected areas that do nor respond to pain meds as they are phantom pains.
