Actually, I used vitamin e oil for all my kids.  They all had eczema when they were young. Behind the knees and in the elbow area.  One had a problem with her face.  When she ate anything with any acid content, oranges, tomatoes etc she ended up with a horrible weepy rash and because she was a baby, she couldn't hit her mouth every time so you could actually see it start. My MIL used to give her tomatoes out of the garden and my daughter loved them but you couldn't tell MIL not to give them to her, they were healthy after all.   the better concentration of oil, the better it worked.  Kept the area lubricated and kept the itching down.  she has beautiful skin now.

Judy T-Bellingham:
admire your "facelift". 

When Nancy says "get my good side"  in the photo, you'll have to ask if its the left or right.  She has good skin and she shouldn't have any problems with the reconstruction.

Christine, Patricia, and Vivian - Thanks for the advice on Vitamin E.  I didn't know it could be used topically.

I finished my rag quilt.  Once I've run it through the machines at the laundromat a couple of times, I'll post a picture.  I also have MQ7 cut out and am waiting anxiously for the next step.   My friend Terri just got back from a vacation to South Carolina, and she found a fun quilt shop and bought me a Moda batik jelly roll.  Sweet!

What to make, what to make...

This will make a great infant quilt, Joe, so many different colors to stimulate the brain.

That's a nice roll right there MNancy. I see turtles, lizards, centipedes and possibly a dragon.

Probly you see something purtier.

I am pressing forth with the infant brain builder quilt. They are having the shower in Jan and I'm trying to get it ready for proud gramma visit here pre-Christmas.

Then it'll be time for new resolutions. I'm hoping I resolve to finish my UFO's before going into the design book. But I hear the Mamma Magic Kite Turtle and the Serious Centipede calling to me from the pages. It's a problem I have.

MNnancy:
Tomorrow I'll be at another doctor for cheek reconstruction, but I don't think there will be any waiting room time.

Hi Nancy, I'm just catching up here and caught a glimpse of your picture and it really stopped me!  Hope all is going well with the re-construction and the pain meds are working for you. 

I bet you will never be without sunscreen again...EVER...no kidding!!!

Nancy - I had a melanoma removed off my cheek that left a scar running from my eye almost to my mouth.  Within about 6 months the scar was barely visible, and now it's all but invisible.  Yours will be also.

Lovely projects, everyone.  I'm working on items for a crafts fair so have been busy busy.  Will post some pics later.

Did I work on a quilt today? Yes I did. I machine sewed binding on two quilts for my boss today so she can hand sew them on her trip this weekend to her family Thanksgiving tomorrow. I worked at the quilt shop today and it was very slow today. Not worth keeping the doors open.

Thanks for the encouraging words!

Are you allowed to work on your own projects during slow periods?

Yes, I did work on a quilt today.  I got the borders on the Marine quilt and loaded it on the frame and actually began the quilting.  I also sewed and made the first cut on the MQ 7.  I'm thinking of cutting another one out...I  have Thimbleberries Twice the Charm pack that might work for another.  But maybe I'll wait until I see what this one looks like first....

I'm working on so many quilts right now I lost count. I'm making a quilt for Indy's trainer and at the moment she almost has her mind made up as to what she wants on the label. The quilt is a Christmas present for her husband. Then I'm binding my round robin quilt for my brother. Planning stages for next round robin center block and also a wall hanging for Pastor's office. And just started a wall hanging for my secret sister. I'm going in several directions. Then I got into my scrapbooking stuff....don't ask, but you can't easily walk into my computer room. But I put together a collage of the day DGS and I spent the day together for his birthday. We went the Louisville Slugger Museum, Science Center, a movie, then I took him home for the surprise birthday party. I even have our original tickets. Now I'm tired and ready to go back to bed. Hugs, Linda
