Ms MoomMist:
I use a motorized cart at Wal-Mart

My DLMIL tried using those motorized carts. But she only weighted 98 pounds soaking wet and they need more weight then that to make then work.  My DSIL's Mom used one and ran right into a tall stack of canned green beans. And the tower tumbled!!!   Ladies in Ellijay that are so large they can not longer walk are the ones who use them at our Walmart. So, the elderly have to hobble along on their own.  There should be a law.

Let me ask you grandmas and newmas out there a question... I just talked to one of my girls, asking how her sister and baby are doing (ended up having a c section).  She said the baby was screaming until the nurses gave him some formula.  Seems he emerged starving... after which he calmed right down.  Momma's planning to nurse him.  My gut reaction is, What were they thinking!?  How could they give him formula when they know it's her intention to nurse!?  It just seems wrong to me on several levels.  Am I misguided in my thinking??

Marsha, I did a fast image search and came up with tons of hits for family tree quilts. These are a few that caught my eye: http://www.victorianaquiltdesigns.com/VictorianaQuilters/PatternPage/MyFamilyTree/Members/MembersQuilts.htm

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

chocake2:
Marsha, had you thought of laying out the family pictures in a family tree type of arrangment? It might help her to keep a handle on who's who is who. If your machine is capible you can even embroider the names under the picts.   I'd love to see your DD's art quilts. Tjey sound beautiful the way you have described them.

I vaguely had an idea of grouping the pictures.  This is a perfect idea.  Thanks a lot.  I don't have embroidery capability on my machine.  The pricetag for the attachment was way to high for me at the time (and now!).

If it works, here is a link to my daughter's website.  She has other links to her blog, etc on there.  She hasn't kept her blog up lately, but if you go back far enough, there is a beautiful picture of a sunflower she has printed and embellished.  Most is on her winter's studio cleaning and rearranging - It is nearly as small as mine!

Most of her communications are on Facebook now.

Sometimes they give the baby formula when the mother's milk hasn't come in yet.  They start nursing with more success the first time if they are'nt starving.  In our day they gave them SUGAR WATER!  To me that was worse than formula.  With me, I wanted that baby to nurse as soon as it was born because I could have nursed many babies I had so much milk.

The "large ladies" - that is a nice way to put it - also bug me.  There have been days when I should be using a motorized cart, but I leave them for those more disabled and lean on a regular cart.  Then I see them used by those who "disable themselves".   Some of us can't prevent our conditions, but some of them could have or CAN!

How does one determine that a baby, just having beeen born, is so hungry?  I never heard of this before. I thought they were screaming because of their rude introduction to the new world.

Patti:
I have never seen nor heard so many hummingbirds at once.[

Finally got this to work.  My computer seems to HIDE things like pop-ups from QuickTime BEHIND the page I am reading.  That is just what happened this time.  I moved the window over to the side finally to see if that is what happened, and found a pop-up asking me if I want update!  I already had updated a few days ago!!!!!  As soon as I checked no, the birds started flying - at least I could HEAR them.  Then I had to find your message again.  They look more like a swarm.  I have never heard that much noise from hummingbirds - usually just the hum as they dart for my head!

Barbara:

Marie and Liz now don't foget to make your quilting bible ,I know its alot of work but you will love having all the stitches to see when you need them , , so look foward to see your books Barbara

Okay...what's a "quilting bible"???

Mary, I was asking that exact same question. And Barbara, thanks for the photos of yours. I will definitely have to concoct something similar when I get my Janome this weekend! Thanks to all of you for the notes...I don't have kids, so this new machine might be the closest I'll get to having a baby! (With apologies to you CC for the comparison - I bet Sprout is a thousand times more wonderful than any sewing machine!)

Oh Thea, you always amaze me with your persistence! If you could bottle it, I would buy a truckload for my friend. She has given up on feeling better and did not follow Dr's instructions after back surgery.  You cannot get better if you stay in the same position, thats what we told her over and over. Who knows I pray that she gets herself moving.

As for you Thea, I hope the weather will change so that you can get relief from your pain.  I know that when you will get better, we will see some amazing things coming out of your sewing room.  ((((hugs))))

Marsha, he was less than an hour old when they gave him formula!
