    Over the weekend I was able to hit the "jackpot" at a Garage Sale in Houghton Lake, MI. The quilter that was selling fabric, books, acrylic rulers, lots of fabric. We got to talking and she said she is on this board!!! Her name is Bobbie J but I cannot find her. I am hoping she will find this note. She was fabulous. I never thought to have her brother take our picture (duh) anyway here is a picture of my purchases. I am 2 months post rotator cuff surgery, PT completed and I am ready to get my machine out and have fun!!!

    As a fellow recovery-ee, take it slow. And stop when you get tired. You don't want to hurt your reconstructed shoulder.

    I have that flying geese ruler and it is so easy to use. You did a great job on your purchase.
