Hello everyone! I'm Mary and I joined in October or November can't remember exactly. So much has gone on since joining. My husband of 5 years was in a major accident on his way to work at 4am November 21. The fog was unbelievably thick and he tried to stop too late for the intersection at a three way stop. He hit the ditch two posts a street sign and finally a tree. Broke his back without paralysis and his heel. I have been with him at the hospital and caring for him here at home. He has had two surgeries, one for his back and one for his foot. He has another foot surgery coming up this Monday. 

Needless to say I haven't looked at a sewing/quilting machine. I do know I signed up for the mystery quilt 7 and got the first three blocks since I was behind in starting. I haven't received the 4th block yet. Does anyone know when they were or if they were sent out yet? 

Idont have the time at the moment but don't want to miss out on the blocks. 

Any ideas and suggestions are welcome, please.
