Barbara from California:
Thea, I am sorry you have so many health issues to deal with.  It is unfortunate the military insurance would not allow you to go to a chiropractor because you may have had great results.  Sadly, they are not a cure-all and cannot help everyone so it may not have been the answer for you.     I hope you can remember to keep the stimulator charged and have as many pain free days as possible.  Hang in there!

Barbara - don't be sorry for me - teehee - I probably deserve it all for all the years I burned the candle at both ends - work work work - party party party - work work work... I never slept back then... I worked 2 jobs and just was always on the go doing something... one day The Lord told me to slow down and I didn't listen so he said it again and still I thought I can still do it all - well then one day he said enough is enough I have got to get through to this girl - and he did... I slowed down but I still love love love life and have still so many plans to finish... places to still see... one state left in the USA - Hawaii and I want to go and see Scotland some day as my relatives came from there on my Mom's side.  I have been to Germany and Switzerland - I need to go to Belgium and England but I figure that will be in the Scotland trip - someday... 

Empathize with me but give me no sympathy... I am not sorry about anything I have done - I wish that my body was a whole lot stronger but heck - he didn't give me anything that I couldn't handle - although at times I think he has... :)  I always remember the Footsteps poem at those times and tell him he has to carry me for a while for my ability to navigate and get through it - and he does... Thank you Lord for being my Lord and Savior!

I've been working on a Jewel Box quilt for a couple of weeks now.  It will be 12 x 12 blocks.  Each block takes 2 four patches and 2 half square triangles.  I have 288 four patches done and pressed.  They look great.  I have all my half sq-tri's cut, but due an error in my math, they are a smidge smaller than they need to be.  I'll have to cut down all my four patches to match.  What a bummer.  I also still have to press and square up the half sq-tri's.  My blocks were going to be 8 inches, now they'll end up more like 6.  I'll probably have to make more than the 144 I had originally planned to make the quilt as large as I want it to be.  Maybe I'll just add some strips around the edge to finish it off.  It's going to be a busy 3-day weekend for me.

Jen, do you mind telling me the name of the fabric? It's so hard to find such a soft butter yellow.

Jen,

These are lovely.  I have not made bumper pads - do you use double layers of batting or some other material?

Aw,,,thanx Barb and Deb!. I made the bumper pads using foam especially made for bumper pads....Fairfield Poly- Fil NuFoam , I found them at Walmart.com $20, cause I can use my discount...Joann's is suppose to carry them too....made it soooo easy. I found the pattern  at pieceandquilt.com/2012/02/making-over-nursery-bumpers-pads-free.html.

Over the years I've made two sets of bumper pads. I got my pads at JoAnn's. Just don't make the mistake I made with the first set I thought it needed to be pressed  and the heat from the iron flattened out the pad. Lucky for me I only flattened one small part of one end.
