    gabapentin-I have tried all the trendy expensive one-they made me sicker than I was.This one helps the pain and I actually sleep now.I am up moving around again.I need that so I can avoid insulin shots for the diabetes.Fibro and diabetes is a bad combo.I feel better than I have in a long time-still not like before fibro.

    Beautiful top. I know what you mean...I have sooooo many UFOs. This week my DH and I and our little furball, Lucie are going south, only 400 miles, but it is south for us. We have rented and apt there on a short lease and we will be near our DD who will be giving birth this week. I will be able to sew, sew, sew. I am so excited....we have been caring for our DGKs for 5 yrs...and their mother for 4, we are leaving her in our home and with the kids and taking off. I hope I can make a quilt as lovely colors as you have made...

    JC I take it too[gabapenten] for Arthritis. It does help you sleep. Also called neurontin. It does work also for burning feet etc. I meant to tell you I'm glad you're doing better and I like your quilt a lot.

    what a wonderfully beautiful quilt. I love the way you finished it. It took a simple pattern and turned it into a real keepsake quilt. Love it.

    Beautiful quilt, I have used strips like yours, almost see strips in my sleep. Being creative is not me when it comes to using scraps. I may take a break and use fabrics I want to use. Scraps just seem to multiply.
    I am so glad you are feeling better and can return to quilt making and quilting.

    It looks great, and I love the quilting pattern you used! It adds lots of interest, but doesn't overpower the quilt. Terrific!
