    Cool I missed it here!!

    I am back after a long absence and I am sure I lost out on a lot and way to much to catch up on. Got sick at Christmas and thought it was my heart turned out to be my lungs. At my age (42) nothing like living on oxygen to be depressing. But I got lots done, 5 quilt tops and many mini projects (handbags, kleenex covers, shopping coupon keepers, etc.) I hope to post pictures of soon. If a super cool project was posted, please let me know because I hate to miss out on them.

    Thanks, Lisa
    Lisa Gibbs

    Welcome back Lisa. Hope your health continues to improve.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I understand!! I went into the hospital in October and have been out on disability since..it gets old real quick. I too have gotten a lot of quilting done since I felt up to it in January. Dragging oxygen tanks around is not fun to travel, but at least I can still get to the fabric store! Of course the reduced income doesnt make these shopping trips as much fun as they used to be I have spent some of my time teaching my 3 youngesdt daughters how to sew and quilt. If you find any fun projects let me know, and I will do the same for you!
    Hope you are doing better, and have a Happy Easter

    Lisa, my husband was diagnosed with heart disease at age 42 also. There were a lot of days that weren't too good for him, but with his strong will and the grace of God, he will be celebrating his 63rd birthday in a couple of months. I know you will be feeling better shortly, too. Glad you are back on the board!

    Glad to hear you're back. Being sick is no fun. Hopefully what has ailed you will not be with you long. I give the friends so much credit that when they do not feel good they can still sew. I'm waiting for gallbladder surgery on Wed and just haven't felt up to sewing-why when I don't feel good I just can't bring myself to do anything crafty? I could enjoy to my hearts content and nothing would get in the way!

    I am glad you are back too. I have been on oxygen about6 or 7 years and really am so thankful I can breathe more comfortable. Sometimes I want to just clip the hose but do like to breath better. Hope yo get to feeling better.
