    ok, I'll ask it, so nobody else looks dumb...

    Yuppers! This way, the Gallery pages stay more or less a gallery & the chat about the pics can build up here.

    AND, nobody looks dumb, except me - but you all have seen a pic of me, so we won't go there. :?

    Awww, Mousie, you're such a sweetie. I have gained so much weight in the last 18 months & it's all due to this Graves disease I have - I've been in a flare-up mode, but can't seem to get out of it. Dr. is out after open heart surgery & his fill-in was useless, nice, but useless. He (my reg. Dr) doesn't want to up my synthroid as he's worried about osteoporosis from too much. Water pills would help, BUT, at the prison it isn't so easy to get to a bathroom - gates & locked doors! Don't want to depend on Depends! :shock:

    another thing you have to watch with water pills is your potassium (sp) level. with that much peeing it could lower that level and let me tell you a low level is just as dangerous as a high level.

    Oh, I've been on HCTZ before & the potassium. In fact, have some now, but wanted to ask him a really important ??? Can I take it at night, like right when I get home? It's effects only last for about 4 hours, so should be OK by bedtime.

    We had a lady at the prison that collapsed from too low a potassium level. She really never did recover. Died about a year later from a heart attack. She always looked ill & was the skinniest thing. Younger than I am.

    Thanks for caring, though.

    Kathy you are quite welcome. SH is on lasik and they watch him like a hawk. he has been at both spectrums of the scale and had to be hospitalized both times. some times it is quite confusing as he usually has at least 3 different doctors checking on him. his liver transplant doc will come in and say one thing, then along comes his kidney doc then low and behold here comes the heart doc. they usually get him sorted out pretty quick. (i think they are starting to realize what a toll it takes on me lol).

    We are all talking about a quilt called "Affairs of the Heart" from the book of the same name by Aie Rossman. There is a group forming that will begin sewing a block a week on June 5. There is a link to the main thread in my signature or you can go to the bottom of any page & click on Topic List. Affairs of the Heart is the top topic. Click on that & all AOTH-related threads are there. The main thread has the words "Cyber Sew" in it.

    If you would like to join in all the fun, please join us! We'd love to have you. As you have probably notices, we are a crazy bunch of ladies from all over the world.

    EDIT: How are the fires around you?

    Oh dear....Jeannie...wondering about this group has got to be a massive job! We tend to wander in our conversations...we talk to several people at once in a single post, we tend to carry conversations from 1 thread to another...so its crazy!! It IS fun though...hope you jump in a join us!!! You'd be more than welcome, just like everyone else!

    I do hope the fires are under control now or out. I heard last night some at 50% contained..is that right?

    It was Mousie who told me about the AOTH! I looked at
    #8 and #11. I love applique! I do intend to join. I looked at the book too. I do not buy stuff over the internet, but I am a member of AQS, so I probably can figure that out.
    I am a newbie, and am still exploring.
    The board has been so good for me, because I am finding friends here.
    I also want to tell you that my son, who is retired military, teaches classes in science, etc to kids in the juvenile prison near Austin TX. He has two of my applique wonky cat wall hanging quilts in his office/ science lab there.

    Thanks Luv! I am such a newbie! I am in the process of figuring it out! I have been carrying on conversations hopping around....seems normal to me! LOL Since I am a newbie to this part of Texas, I have to make all new friends here too. Since I am an 81 yr old gypsy, it isn't the first time that has happened! This board has been a lifesaver, though! Jeannie

    Oooo, Candace, that sounds really wonderful! I just finished an uneven log cabin in those colors. The comb is so very HOT right now! You'll have tons of fabric choices for your inner border! I'm still struggling with what to do for mine. I think I know what I'm going to do, but I need to take the time to lay it out and "see."
