    Susan what a great pincushion and pins and I hope your family are ok. Karen you do such good work. It was 5 degrees when I had to shovel my whole driveway this morning at 6 o'clock. And now it's warmed up to a hot 12. It's going to be 50 tomorrow so I hope all this crappy snow melts. I didn't have much snow before yesterday and now it looks like the middle of winter. I knew what she had when she went to the ER and I told them what it was. It was cellulitis and she had it last year too. When she was in the nursing home she came home with (they called them) wounds from laying in the bed so much and that was the place where the swelling was. So she's ok and I'm sure she'll be waiting for her ride no matter how cold it is. I'm just exhausted. I hope everyone has a great day.

    Karen thank you for the information. I have not done any trapunto yet, but I have watched it done on tv. and it is so pretty. I want to try some soon. Those stones are pretty. That is the way to buy the candy too. My dh likes the smarties in those little long packs, and found some of those after Valentine's Day with a great deal on them. After Easter it will be a good time to look for all the little chocolate eggs etc.

    nhnative I just hate to hear of you having to do more shoveling. Bless your heart. I hope you get rest soon. Being so tired, and you have not felt good. You need a long rest. My dh had to go to the hospital several years ago due to cellulitis. He has severe type 2 diabetes with weeping leg ulcers. It was a scary time. Now he wears the mens support hose which help his legs so much. One of my sisters use to work in a nursing home, and told me about how bad some sores can get from the patient laying for long periods, and that they turn them a lot for that reason.

    Well, my packages will go out today.

    Everyone have a great day resting, sewing, or whatever makes you happy.

    Lynnie you are one day closer to your exciting cruise.

    Pat I am so impressed with how much you do. I am not surprised you are exhausted! I sometimes get worn out just reading about how much you have on your plate. Tomorrow should be a decent day, thank goodness since I have a million errands to get caught up on and dad has a dr appointment. I rescheduled it from yesterday so he wouldn't have to go out in the snow and ice. I am not stable enough to hold him up if he slips so we don't go anywhere together unless it is dry. Fortunately his doctor got him signed up for a handicapped placard for when we go out.

    I think I do more now than when I was working. I should remind my DS that I didn't move to Ohio to be a babysitter. I think that he thinks that I'm always available. Sad thing is that that is probably true now. It was a little cold today so she only got a 2 hour ride. Tomorrow when it's 50 I'll do my shopping. I could have gotten a handicap place but the only place she goes in is to the dr and they have valet parking. I can't believe I was out in that bad weather yesterday. Once it gets hot I don't know what I'm going to do. She can stay in the car when it's cold out so I can run in and get stuff but when it's hot I can't leave her in the car or leave her alone in the house.

    Everyone is so busy. Pat, I feel so bad for you with all this terrible weather. Spring is coming...at least that's what they tell me.
    No new Pincushion here yet, and I guess my partner didn't get her's yet. it's a week late, again.
    went to jaonns today, everything was on sale, so I couldn't use my 50% off. dontcha just hate that???
    bought more aquas for my log cabin, anything left over will go into a jellyroll quilt i'm using 2" strips and this quilt will be at a minimum 120" x 120".My bed is really high, I need a step stool to get into it.
    hope everyone is doing o.k. today. looking forward to more pictures.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    At least tomorrow is going to be 50 and I hope all the snow melts. I'm planning to go to JoAnn's tomorrow and maybe Hobby Lobby. I always have a lot of coupons and don't get to use them as usually everything is on sale.

    That is so frustrating to not be able to use the coupons. I remember back in the day when you could choose whichever was cheaper, the sale or the coupon. I received a package today from the monthly secret pal swap, and my partner sent me a pincushion and a needlecase!

    I think it is too early Mary. The shipping deadline isn't until next Friday. I hope that's all it is and it's not that they all left town!

Should be against the law. lol

    Scrapper,lucky you. I wanted that leprechaun pin cushion. Isn't he so cute. Look at the cute needle case too. Thanks for the info on your medicine. I took oral meds for 9 yrs until my pancreais quit making insulin. Now I inject insulin. I will talk to my dr. insulin does help keep my reading down. With watching what I eat. Glad you like your chair pin cushion. Did you lift the seat up to find the hidden compartment? Some great pictures coming in. Keep them coming. Have a good day everyone.

    scrapper. so glad you got your pc. nice gifties coming in.
    I'm a diabetic. the doc put me on a 'way of life' diet, so far since jan I've lost 24 lbs and my sugars are between low 84 to high 148. 148 was when I ate the whole box of chocolates and 5 pcs of Italian bread. but normally it's now 90-120. I can't take that new med due to the fact that my stomach is paralyzed and I have severe acid reflux. I take about 4 rx for acid reflux and 2 to make my stomach digest food. . if you have stomach problems, you can't take it. good luck

    not painful, per say. when they were doing one of my back surgeries, they cut the never that makes it digest food, so I don't know when i'm hungry...hence, my eating is not physical, just a bad habit. I take a few meds to digest food. no biggie. glad we got some new pics today, always happy to see them. can't wait to see what the mail brings tomorrow. we're getting snow on sunday night to mon am

    apologies and picture

    I wrote this to the march SP swap as well:
    I am so very sorry that I wasn't able to post. I've been in hospital tha last 8 days because of a staphylococ infection. I had a blather infection a couple of weeks ago that went to my kidneys as well. It seemed to be over after antibiotica, but 8 days ago I got a terrible pain in my kidney area and high feaver. I was taken to the emergency and had to stay in hospital till this morning. The first days I never thought of any swap, than I asked a friend to send my swaps. But she didn't manage to get to my files in the PC.
    I can't go to the PO today, and they are closed on sundays, so first thing monday morning the parcel with my PC will be on its way.

    I got home this morning and found a gorgeous PC from Mary (Lawsonmug). I didn't have the chance to fill it yet, but I wanted to show it, I love the fabrics you used. I also received these small bands I can use on my bobbins (hadn't been able to find those over here),
    and patterns for 2 bags. This did make me smile, because just before I went to hospital I had bought some clear vinyl to try and make a bag and some pouches. How did you know??? LOL
    As soon as I have finished the PC I'll show another picture.
    Thank you so much Mary, I really love and appriciate it.
