ah shucks....

Thanks for all the well wishes... I am doing much better.... I have 4 bruises on my left foot and leg, one or two on my right foot and my wrist is still very sore. I slept last night with it propped up on a pillow... I haven't tried any sewing with the machine, but I was able to finish the binding on the commission quilt..

We took off at 6am this morning to take all the lumber to the county dump...which isn't in our county so it took 90 minutes to get there and 90 minutes back but once again I didn't have to help unload the truck... :-)

Then the hubby took another run to our daughters where he dropped off the shed in pieces. It is a rubbermaid shed so the sil said he wanted to put it up at their house. Tomorrow I will get out early and rake the bald spot in the yard, lay some dirt and grass seed. Of course I can't pick up the dirt so the hubby will have to do that... :-) I think the neighbors will be happy the shed is gone. We were unaware when we put it up that it is against the association to have a shed and before we were told to take it down, the builder went bankrupt and the neighborhood association was kaput... Of course there is also nothing we can do about the trampoline, swimming pool, hot tub and various crap in the yard behind us either...so there is good and bad...

He really feels bad although I don't think a new sewing machine or a tropical vacation is in the works... dang it..

I'll try to get the hubby to hold the quilt up tomorrow and get some pictures... surely he can be persuaded to do that much...

I think you have a bit of mileage with this one, even if it isn't quite new machine or tropical holiday worthy :o)
Hope you feel better soon.

Glad you are doing much better, tell hubby he has to hold the quilt up for pics, because "England Expects every man to do his duty!" (Lord Nelson I beleive) :)

I just read your last post and hope you are on the mend. At least now you have an excuse to never help load or unload the truck. If you cant get a machine out of it some fabric should be bought!!!!

Just read your last two posts. Oooh, ouch! That was quite an tumble, actually two tumbles. Hope all is feeling better now. You will be sewing again soon.
Have a super great day.
