    Hey,

    sorry all who I have the side swap going on (listed below) - I haven't been able to mail the blocks yet. We have had two deaths in the family recently, and the life has been upside down more than enough..... The sad season ends this weekend when the second funeral service takes place.

    babyfire04, cuppy, dottiedodge, girlscouts1, lovingizabella, lovinggrandma, Navarre2011, roseysue, Scrapper,Tracibug and travelinggramma.

    Well, it's been several hours now since I saved my husband's life. Yes really! We were at TGIF for lunch and he got choked on a piece of steak. He coughed and no sound came out and he acted like he was gagging. I asked him if he was "ok" and he shook his head no. I hit him once between the shoulder blades and he made a little air gasp. I had to actually do the Heimlich on him to get the meat dislodged. It came up and he gasped a deep breath.

    The only others people that seemed to notice were a group of teenagers with one mom and I think they freaked out a little. They were finished eating and ready to leave anyway but no one asked what was going on.

    I was calm and clear while it was happening but once it was over I noticed my hands shaking and felt slightly dizzy.

    If you don't know how to do the Heimlich or think you'll never need it, think again. Things happen in a blink of an eye and your life could be changed forever.

    I am extremely thankful I knew what to do and could do it calmly when needed...I hope I never have to do it again but am so thankful my husband is still with me tonight.

    Moomwork, Glad you had the wits about you to do what was needed. CPR is another tool we all need to know about. We never know when it can save a life. Thanks for sharing your story and I am so glad it has a happy ending. Phannie

    Traveling grandma Thanks you for posting that. I do have it. Yeah. I have updated my list.

    Moon.....Thank goodness. I am not surprised that other's did nothing or even noticed. It seems people do not want to get involved now a days.

    Moonwork, my block is absolutely fantastic...tell Dad that the lady from Texas could not replace your wonderful blocks....no way, no how. By the way, loved the Paducah show. We managed to make it to everything on the list, including the Libby Lehman-Alex Anderson show. I feel so honored to have seen her before she fell ill, although it looks a little more promising for her recovery. Sorry, not to have been able to look you up, but my crew had us on the run from daylight til dark.

    Moon: your an angel and a blessing. I can't imagine anything scarier than watching your loved one helpless like that. Amazing what we are capable of push come to shove. My hubby says its like this.. there are people who run out of buildings in a fire and there are people who run in. He has had to help no less than 2 (believe it was three) people who were shot in drive by shootings in SF. He was a dispatcher, his window looked at a chevron station. Everyone would run and hide and his boss said no don't go out.. he was the guy who went to aid the man down. The chevron employees? locked in the store. he held them til help got there and not on time either.. the families were very thankful .. its not easy being strong. A high five and a high ten for doing more than the average bear.

    Quilting: I love the blocks that came in. Wondering if any of you are fast charlies can you post what you have done like putting them together? I know Jaba had hers more than half way done she was sewing rows as they came in. And please.. after everyone is done, post a picture of what you made with your blocks. Especially in your folder. This way those who think about joining the next one can go sneak peak them and make the decision do I want to join or not. usually those pics are the push oh yes yes I do! love my quilt from rubies. will post it this week to show you ah what can be done

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
