What a wonderful, creative quilt. I am amazed at the beautiful work and understand the time it took to create it with all those small pieces. Wonderful! Thanks for posting.

So glad for the updates. Hoping Stu will continue to gain a bit of weight and that he will get a sooner appointment with the specialist.
Thinking of Gwennie and her DH as well and hoping things go well for them tomorrow. We will continue to pray for health and healing.
Raining off and on all day and we loved it. Our fires are almost out and the air was clean as we walked, between bursts of rain, this morning.

Only the green part. "Solanine, a natural glycoalkaloid, can occur when potatoes are exposed to too much light. ... If you notice a slight green layer just under the potato skin, cut away the green portions of the potato skin before cooking and eating; there is no need to discard your favorite tuber since the non-green portion is safe to eat." Found this on google.
Hope you keep getting the all clear of glaucoma.
Thanks for the kind wishes. My hopes as well.
Good luck with the ophthalmologist. I’m also diligent about going to the optometrist as there’s both glaucoma & macular degeneration in my family & my one cousin was completely blind in one eye before she realized there was a problem
Good advise about the shoulder, I never thought about the tendons. DILs Dads hip prosthesis is breaking down & he has ?metal ?? In his blood, seems stange but that’s what DIL said they told him. Have you heard of that?
Yes, that can happen. Check it out here:https://www.consumersafetyguide.com/medical-devices/metal-on-metal-hip-replacements/
Well update.....shoulder just started to pop out a... (
Be sure to check again, in person, with the surgeon as soon as possible. Just looks like there is now problem with the shoulder, possibly a rotator cuff breakdown. Sounds like a complete shoulder workup is now in order before this problem gets any worse. Sadly, the prosthesis needs a good cuff to hold it in place and if the cuff has a problem, that won't happen. Be bold but non-aggressive or hostile, but make sure you get seen right away. Just my 2 cents worth.
Thanking Sam and the ladies for the new start of the week. The chicken sounds like a great recipe. Also will try the brown bread.
See my opthalmologist Monday morning for routine checkup. History of glaucoma in family so we are being very careful.
So enjoyed the lighthouse picture. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Finished Sonjaâs KAL
Very nice. Some little one will enjoy it. I am always amazed at the neat knitting you do, Fan.
So hoping that Stu can see the neurosurgeon quickly and see if he can get a permanent fix. That amount of pain is so wearing and, sadly, sets up a "learned response" in the brain so that, sometimes, it takes a while for the neurological response to lessen even after the fix is applied.
I agree completely! If it was so important then she could have sent a pm to you saying what was so important and not request your email. Scam, scam, scam. Some folks just need to get a life.
A big scam. Don't reply and if you can find the email address, put an ignore on it. Got an"urgent" message on my phone answering machine last week that I was to call this number right away as there was a bank problem. I did call the number and got a foreign person telling me that they had mistakenly charged me for a computer program, I was to call and have them remove that. When I did, they said that it had already come from my bank account, I was to give them that number, and they would do a bank transfer back to that account. I told them no way, hung up, called my bank and had them put a watch on my account for anything bigger than $30. The bank said that this was likely coming from Nigeria. How they got my phone number I don't know, but I have learned a great lesson. If the caller doesn't say who they are and why they are calling right away, I won't answer or call back. It is amazing how many catfishers there are nowadays.
Just got home from mri, all done now we wait for results, hopefully not a hassle as poor Gwen has had.
Glad to hear the MRI is over. Hoping that the results come quickly and that they show a repairable problem. You have been on my mind and in my prayers all day.
Fan, neat car pants. You are very clever and some little child will love it. Good on you.
Sorry about the fires....we’ve been blessed here this summer as very few fires and mostly small...
That VertiFlex for the spine sounds so interesting.... so much better than having surgery....
Actually, the Verti Flex is put in under anesthesia as a surgery. I wasn't very clear in my description. The incision is only about an inch long for each area of the spine where the vertebrae needs to be lifted. However, it is done as a same day surgery and the patients go home with very little pain and already better feeling in their back and in their legs. Most of them have leg nerve pain as a result of the collapsed vertebrae.
Thank you Sam, KayeJo and Margaret for the recipes and summaries. So helpful. The creamy spaghetti has my name on it.
Glad that spring is coming, finally, to our Pacific friends. Fall is just getting started here and already we have more fires north of Salt Lake City.
I am excited to see your boy onesie Fan. Think a car one will be very cute. Remember, even girls like cars!
Fan, think the MRI will not come a moment too soon for Stu. Hoping it will show something that can readily be repaired with or without back surgery. There is a neat device now, rather like a mini-jack, that can be used to raise up the vertebrae that have collapsed on the back nerves, allowing the nerve to be freed. It is called a Verti Flex and is amazing. I must admit I am amazed every time I see it used and its great results.
That’s a horribly long time to get your pills down.
Learned from my ENT doc that there is an easy way to down pills. He said that one should put the pills in your mouth, take a large sip of liquid and then, INSTEAD of tipping your head up, you should tip it down. Then swallow. This maneuver widens your throat and makes them easier to swallow. Tipping your head up narrows your throat, though that is what most of us try. I must admit, for me, this has really worked well. Hope this helps.
Try getting in touch with WEBS knitting. They sell Knitters Pride and have been very helpful when I have had a problem.
Darowil, that is a wonderful jacket, both in color and in design. I can see either a boy or girl wearing it with joy. Especially I like the pockets!
Gwennie, that is a neat outfit and you look great in it.
