    I was out doing my exercise - walking - in October, when I fell and broke my shoulder/arm. I was in a splint for a number of weeks and all through the therapy. My foot and knee on the other side, were still hurting, so finally broke down and went to the podiatrist yesterday - seems I also broke my big toe when I fell and I have an appointment tomorrow morning to see if there's any damage to the knee. I expected the aches and pains after the fall, but when they didn't heal, I got worried - guess that was good to go to the doctor, but not happy with the results.

    You guys! STop it right now. ENOUGH OF THIS FALLING. As my dear father used to say when we were kids in a real loud voice WHO GAVE YOU PERMISSION TO DO THAT? boy thetears dried up and I would try to comeup with some lame duck excuse and he would go into my not doingthings like that again unless I have permission and me crying ok I wont and forgetting all about the fact I fell off my bike hit my face on the curb edge was black and blue from the check to the forehead. ah to be a kid. You guys did nothave permission . So stop that immediately. I am so sorry to hear you got hurt. Twinkie I am triple sorry . How your doing that and raising kids thats a tough row to hoe. I will hope it gives you some peace and that warmer weather will keep any pain away. You guys are so right healing is so much easier when you are younger. I seem to take forever on some things and zoom through others.

    Nowonto fun things like tablerunners. I think mine is going to be arriving..soon. one day. this month. when it gets here. I am patient. I have a lovely already on my table. ha! I get two this month. Talk about smiling all the way to the post office.

    Elisabrat, lol, sounds like something my dad would have said. I remember when I had a tooth loose and hurting when I was probably 8, he had me point to it, "Elbow up & push it back. I can't see in there." Then BAM! He popped me in the elbow & knocked it out. I was too mad at him for tricking me to realize it hurt.

    Oh I can't wait to get my runner! Deadline is almost here! It's like Christmas all over again!

    I bought fabric and a little bin today that's about the size of a square tissue box. I'm going to make something interesting for a friend's mom who's in a nursing home. I'll share when it's done!

    Have you or the BF looked into doing one of the self-finished epoxy coats? They are about $100 or so at Home Depot/Lowes, but you put them on over whatever is already on the floor. It's basically a really thick paint and it comes with little chips (like round sprinkles) to add traction. We were able to put it down in under 24 hours at our last house. It might not be the worst thing to check out!

    In order to put the epoxy floor down at this point, they're going to have to get every bit of the paint off the concrete first. That means either sandblasting or basically grinding it off. Both are expensive and time consuming. There's a contractor who owes me for some bookkeeping who I've talked to about doing this. We had to get the doorway watertight first because they also didn't slope the garage toward the door like they were supposed to. Instead, they left it flat.....ish. There's a dip in the middle of it. They also didn't slope the first section of concrete away from the garage door like they were supposed to, so water was coming straight in when we got a hard rain, and we ended up with a big puddle in the middle of the garage every time.

    My boyfriend and I met when he was in the middle of having this house built in 2006. I've been around both residential and commercial construction since 1991, so I watched this house being built as I either bit my tongue or watched as the things I pointed out to him were swept under the rug by the contractor as either no big deal or I didn't know what I was talking about. The garage floor being slippery when wet after they painted it was one of the things that I pointed out, that the contractor blew off when he brought it up to him. If they'd mixed a medium grit sand with the paint before they put it down, it would have had grip to begin with. That's an old trick for a temporary fix until you can afford a permanent one.

    Since the contractor who owes me is roughly 30 mi from here, and the construction industry is still struggling so in his area, him having the money for the materials and machine he'd have to rent to grind the paint off just hasn't happened yet.

    Marybeth - love the apple pie topper that came to my house - we still are using it on our dining room table and it is just perfect.

    First off, all the runners pictured so far are so great!! Sharing a pic of table runner I am working on, Just have to finish some hand embellishment and do the binding... I plan to have it in the mail by Monday, maybe even tomorrow...I know, by the skin of my teeth...this really isn't an excuse, but my beloved machine went "kaput" day before Christmas...dh and I tried to fix it with the help of some gals here sending me pics of their machine thats the same...but it wasn't fixable..and local repair shops charge $75.00 just to look at it..at that price plus whatever parts/labor were needed it isn't worth it...So I have "scrambled" to get the quilting part done...couldn't do fmq, so it will be combo of outline, and hand quilting...One big silver lining is that I just bought my dream machine, Janome Horizon 7700...but I haven't had time to even plug it in yet...Heres the runner in progress...hope my "swappee" likes it...

    For some reason I thought the theme of the table runner had been put to winter instead of Christmas..I had originally made this table runner, then changed and made the mitten one instead....just wondering what you all think of this one? Either one will work for my "swappees" tastes...so I thought I would ask for opinions...and then pick one to send her...Hard to see in pic, but I did decorative machine stitch around each ornament with shiny gold Sulky thread...the ornament "holders" are shiny silver thread applique...Thanks for y'all's input..

    First off, most of the -- actually all of the runners are great, there are some I like better than the others - as I'm sure we all do. Kiffie, I think the original theme was winter, but Christmas is during winter, so no biggie there - and I think your ornaments are just neat - if it's for me, the mittens are great, but the ornaments are great too. And Luv2Sew, I really am partial to americana, so love yours as well. Nothing has arrived at my mail box yet this month. Ship date is fast upon us, so looking for something in the next few days.

    I like them both too! But have to say I wouldn't use Xmas now and would have to wait a year, so for this winter I'd use the mittens. But I really like both of them.....Think it's your pick

    In case there's another one???? I sure hope so as soon as this one's done. I sure be ready for something less wintery and snowy. Guess that tells you how the weather is here. Snowing again, wind blowing, 6.8 degrees and suppose to get below zero, think it was like 7 below. Like I said, just lovely Wyoming weather.
