    Sharon, your pansy fabric is beautiful!

    Sewze, I lived with a slipped disc in my back for years. I refused to have back surgery until I could no longer stand upright, gave in to the surgery (23 years ago) and never regretted it. Have had no pain since the surgery and with the disc fused in place I am able to go back to some heavy work with no problem. Sure wish I had had the surgery years before I did. I had the most wonderful surgeon and I followed his directions to the letter. (No standing, no sitting, no lefting for 3 weeks - laid flat on my back (no pillow) in bed unless I was up walking) The surgery was the best thing I ever did.

    Bobbielinks, thanks for the info on the surgery, it is most helpful. I have 4 bad disc's in my lumbar spine with arthritis on top of arthritis and sciatic nerve involvement. Also, have 3 baddies in my neck and scoliosis. Eight years ago my pain management Dr. gave me a nerve block for the right side and it lasted for 7 yrs... Last April ( when i couldn't bend over or sit down) he gave me block in the right sciatic nerve with no guarantees as to how long it would last. I was to return in two weeks for the left side to be done. However, I no longer had any sciatic pain in either side, so we put that on hold. Still no sciatic pain, but, I'm just really stiff and can't do much walking or bending over for very long---have to take many sit down breaks when vacuuming. LOL. Too many knock down dragged out battles with foals. LOL

    I recieved my magazine in todays mail. Haven't opened it yet. Hording it till I can sit back and read it without distractions. I love my quilting magazines. I still have to wait a while yet before my arm is physically able to cut my materials so I can complete my quilt. Looking forward to seeing everyone elses masterpiece quilts till then.

    Got mine on Thursday!

    Took it on a field trip and read all the instructions and boy did it give me an idea or two for another mystery quilt! LOL

    So lets see, finish 2nd Blue Skies Mystery (1st clue up now) finish McCalls Mystery (last clue now in hand) finish toddler quilt (all cut, need to put together) and create 2 more baby quilts.. think I have a busy weekend ahead.. or some time off work to get it all done! LOL

    Still don't have mine! Don't know why I'm so anxious for it to arrive......not that I don't have anything else to do, except mowing grass.

    ok, you guys! those of us who have to wait for the stores to put out the new edition, probably on the 3rd are going to have to look at all your beautiful quilts while we wait. that's cruel and unusual punishment, and isn't that forbidden by the geneva convention or something?

    My issue arrived yesterday!!! I needed to get some outside chores done before sitting down to look through it so it was after dark last night before I got to view the quilt and final directions. I did the final cutting before going to bed last night and am ready to start the sewing. I am not good at being able to picture something in my mind so I still don't know if I like my color choices. I would love to see everyone's quilt when they get it sewn together.

    i havent received my subscription copy either and i too refuse to buy another one. i'm gonna contact mccall's subscription department and see what's up.

    sharon what a great job. your colors look great together.

    i do like the quilt pattern and i will not be concerned with my color choices not one bit. it's too late anyway becasue i have started cutting.
