Happy Monday

Morning,We had a beautiful weeekend with the 70's temperature and warm sunshine. I want to thank all of you for your thoughts about my physical health, it is an on going struggle that I will live with and I know I can do it. There is no medicine to help it but you know I have great hopes that someday with all the things they come up with that they will figure this one out too. My brother suffered many years and was in a chair the last years of his life and he was a great role modle for me, I miss him especially when I sorta get down but then you guys are always there to cheer me on--- THANKS so much for the encouragement along the road. I am going to sew on Faiths quilt for my little time up today so will close for now. I do see that if I do stay off of my legs more it is more comfty for me and the swelling is not as bad Yeah for that factor. Just have to learn to pace myself more. Have a great week. Hugs, Marie

Just Me

I am off my legs most of the time and trying to see if I DO follow the doctors advice if that will really help me at this time.The swelling seems more controlled by this and maybe the leg seizures too. I had to resign from some of the things that I belong to and that was not a pleasant thing to do as I had been very active most of this year in my Eastern Star Chapter.I try to sew a little then back to the recliner and it will take a lot longer to finish my quilts but if it helps me then I shall do it. there is not any medicine to treat the problem and it will continue to worsen in time, I have very little feeling in the left foot . Well enough of me. I have almost half of the ice skating quilt strips sewed . Hugs to all, Marie

Picture Piecing

Last wednesday I too a class at my LQS called Picture Piecing by Cynthia England. What a fun class!!You use freezer paper and work on the top of fabric instead of back. If you have a chance to learn this by all means do you will be amazed at how forgiving this type of piecing is if you make a mistake. We did this butterfly sample. Have a great day and I will check in later after my appointment on Tuesday with the vas.dr. who will tell me more about my blockage and if they can do something about it that will help my leg, wish me luck.Hugs to all, Marie

Happy Valentine Day

Today is Valentine Day and it is a very quiet day in our home so I decided to make a black and red table runner and I actually did and finished it up. Yesterday I cut out all of the ice skating quilt for Faith so I will be working on that next.Our weather is a little cool but I will ake it over the ice and snow anyday. Hope your sweetheart was sweet to you as mine was to me too. Have a great day and Hugs to all, Marie
