    Look what I got just for going to the chiropractor!

    I go at least once a month for neck and back spasms, but most times I go a few times a month. I've been seeing my chiropractor for a LONG time (several yrs.), and we've become friends. Yesterday, I went for an adjustment and his staff asked me if I wanted to see some fabric that one of their other patients had brought in -- the family was going to burn it because the quilting mother had to go into a nursing home. He told them that he knew of someone else who quilted and would probably want the fabric (me immediately thought of me). Anyway, I had to share some of the yardage with another woman, but I got all the smaller pieces, some already cut to 3'' pieces.
    Then he asked me how much I'd charge him to make a baby quilt for his expectant daughter, "just something in pink." I told him I'd check to see what I have at home, but when I looked thru the fabric he gave me, I decided I could use some of that too. Then, some of his office staff asked me what I'd charge to quilt some tops they have from their late grandmothers! All of this just because I needed an adjustment! Now to think of a pattern for a baby girl's quilt.........
