    Oh wow Ruthy! So glad your back, and how fortunate for you to have found a donor. Keep warm under a quilt and take care of yourself!!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Glad to hear that you are better. You might want to consider starting a blog here on the Board to keep everyone updated on your progress. Blog is new on the new format and is a great way to keep friends informed. You can start with this first post by using the Blog this Post button right below your original post. Best wishes.

    Stay strong! I work in a hospital and still I am amazed with what all is being done! Things that we never thought could be cured not so long ago is every day practice now! Prayers for a quick recovery.

    Wow Ruthy, that's some serious stuff you have been endured. Nothing but best wishes and continued successful recovery. Get your strength back and dip your toes back into quilting when you can. Happy holidays to you too.
