Thanks for your kind thoughts everyone and Marie, I have already read one of the latest books out about Charleston SC area. My daughter took it home and brought me a whole bag of other books, but after a while you just get tired of reading too. I JUST WANT TO QUILT- of course that is just because I can't. I could get so much accomplished while I can't watch the baby. Had to go out and shore up my one tomato plant that got too heavy with tomatoes on one branch. If they all ripen, I will be in hog heaven with my seedless tomatoes. Ginny
I'm pickiin a few tomatoes here and there but most are still green.
Got my center on my quilt attached and then decided to run t o local shop for shearing up or encouragement tips for finishing my design. After taking a long break from quilting it felt like i didn't even know how to sew a straight seam but thats ok i was sewing in the round. With the advice of applique and cut away i will get this quilt done.
Thanks thea on advice for neighbors.
Quilting My Rainbow
Good morning lovely quilters!
It's finally Friday! After a jam-packed week at work catching up from my vacation days, I am ready to relax. Two of my gal pals and I are going up to our cabin on the Mississippi this weekend. I haven't been in quite a while, but I distinctly remember sitting on Adirondack chairs on the huge wrap around porch over looking the Mississippi. I cannot wait.
PS Have you checked out my editor's blog lately? I have been writing up a storm!
Ok Rachel you do entirely too much traveling. Not fair. Have fun be safe. We are going camping this weekend. Hope the weather holds up.
Ginny I'm sorry you are down and without projects. I missed the post if you said if you broke your leg. I guess it is time to just sit back and relax and watch Hallmark movies. I have a friend in SC that took a fall this week and broke her ankle She can't get around at all now and has a heavy cast up to her knee. Hope you heal quickly.
Joyce, It is not that I am without projects, I just can't do any of them because it requires that I either put the right leg down or use it at the sewing machine with my knee pedal. I didn't break my leg, but I might as well have with all of the pain and swelling that I am having.
I feel at the hospital, on my knee. Since I am on coumadin, there is an extreme amount of swelling and bleeding into surrounding tissues.
I had to go back to the hospital yesterday due to the pain from the swelling and the fact that now my blood was too thin---and they were afraid that I was getting an infection from all of this.
I am back home now after they did more tests and ultra sounds and xrays to make certain that I didn't have a blood clot. Shot me up with some IV morphine and when the pain was under control they sent me home to follow up with an orthopedic Dr. next week.
I am exhausted from all of this to say the least, but at some point, I will survive it all. Thanks for your kind thoughts. Think that I will sit back and read some. Ginny
Ginny, guess if you are gonna fall the hospital is a good place for it to happen. I pray all turns out ok and this heals really quick.
I have been away for awhile. One medical problem, for both of us, that is causing the bills to flood the mailbox. Boo!
I hope all of you in Washington were well away from that terrible fire that burned 100 homes yesterday. We are having unseasonably cool weather with lots of rain. Walking the dogs in the woods just after sunrise in the cool morning air is wonderful.
Not doing any quilting right.now. Just not feeling creative, I
Oh Sukochi, I can really appreciate your comment about the big bills from medical problems. With all of the things that have happened to me in the past year it is becoming unreal. Hope that your medical problems are getting under control.
All I know is that this time, anything that my medicare insurance doesn't cover had better be covered by the hospital or heads will roll. I have put them on notice that the carpeting that caused the fall needs to be removed and that handrails need to be put up in the halls. Ginny

Donna, beautiful spot to camp! Romantic sunset!
Susan and Ginny thanks for the kind words.
The older we get seems the more doctors we attract. Such is life. Ginny, your Medicare won't cover an accident, will it? The hospital should pick up the entire cost, and pay for pain and suffering. Get a lawyer!
Feeling a bit more creative today. Will wonder in to the sewing room and see what I can get in to.
Mamag looks like you found a great place to camp.
On my last week w/having grands. It has been fun spending time w/them all! Each one so very different, yet a little the same too.
DD & DGD1 are doing great up at Mayo. DGD1 is EATING!!!! They are talking now of removing her tummy tube! I am beyond happy! Thankful that God answers prayers! She still doesn't get excited to eat, and does drink her formula, but at least the pump and all that goes w/it isn't needed now!!! She is up there this week and then they come home this Friday. Can't wait to see her eat things!!!
Have a blessed day!!!
Dawn, that is great news about your DGD starting to eat. So glad. Happy that you have enjoyed having your DGK stay this summer. Ginny
