    I really can't complain, though, what is wrong with me is really minor! It is just harder to get on Bo- he is 16.2 hands - a really big guy; and, I am having a hard time trying to pull a blouse/t-shirt off over my head - my arm screams at me when I try![/QUOTE]

    Nancy, I have had my sholdier freeze up on my so I know what kind of pain you are having. My doctor told me that it
    was bursitis. When I am having problems with it I get massages. My sholdier stops hurting right away. Maries's daughter give some good ones. Kathie

Thought back in Jan. it was coming back but so far so good. I know the pain and how you feel and hope you are feeling better very soon.
    So you were dealing with that too when we met up in Eugene? I didn't realize that, we coulda discussed it!

    Mine is hanging on...got the one cortizone shot, didn't help at all...after a year, it's getting a bit better, but still not "good". (Or at least I'm getting used to dealing with it!)

    Nancy, I have trouble and have had to adapt how I dress and undress, among other things... it's been an interesting year!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    What I was thinking of was making a silhouette of each machine and appliqueing it on to the border row of squares with the name of each machine. I'm trying to remember how we did the silhouette thing wayyyyyyyyyy back when I was in grade school.

    Joe
    That sounds so cool!! Great idea!!! I'm sure if you google there is some tutorial on making a silhouette.

    Nancy, First bra turned out and was comfy, just that it has those seams in bust area that show through clothing- which I just hate. I picked the more difficult pattern to make for first attempt at such an endeavor. My second attempt will be without those seams, which will make it much easier to construct.

    Here is another White: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/fuo/3052822944.html

    Been noticing numerous White that are posted with something missing. In this case, the treadle peddle is broken.
    Nancy, on the White that you linked to, that machine is missing the throat plate. There have been others with with this plate missing.

    What thread did you decided to use for all of your machines?
    Linda,

    I've mentioned the all machine quilt in several threads over the past month, but so far I haven't started a dedicated thread. I probably will in a day or so. The quilt is basically gonna be a denim scrap crazy quilt. So far I've got various types and ages of blue. I'm gonna pick up some colored denim the next time I head to the fabric shop or a thrift store. I saw some bright red denim pants some time back. That would look pretty good in there.

    I've got to get the light and paper deal figured out. With so many machines that is gonna be a PITA. ESPECIALLY the treadles.

    Joe

    There is a Stratovaro sewing machine for sale in my area. I have never heard of that one before. Can anyone tell me about it? Kathie

    Isn't it another Japanese class 15 type clone? If so, all metal and will last a lifetime.

    Another set of frozen shoulders here. I met a bear while out walking my dogs. My big wolfdog stood when I said, "Leave it," but the 53 pound coydog tried to attack repeatedly. She was recent rescue so not as well trained. I separated my shoulder restaining her. Got that fixed manually - ouch, but ended up with a frozen shoulder which migrated to the other one which isn't fair. Multiple treatments by a kineseologist, chiropractic tratments and massage have returned the first one to near normal. The second one is perfect. Yes, I fit in the age group, but I certainly had some help there. The bear finally turned and went into the woods after coming toward us for what seemed like forever - it wasn't.
