Pain Free!! Wheeeee!!

Got to talk to Emily last night after her right foot surgery. This whole situation has been just nanometers short of miraculous. Regardless of the circumstances, I am giving all the glory to God, our merciful heavenly Father. She had nothing but glowing reports of all the personnel at the clinic. Best of all, she IS truly pain free.

If you want to see before and after pictures of her foot (taken moments after the surgery was complete), look here. She is the one coded 010411EP (date of surgery and her initials). This really falls into the too-good-to-be-true category of life. I am so happy for her that I could cry at a moment's notice when I think about it.

Off to machine quilt a baby quilt I'm making for a friend. She lives in FL, and her dad is driving down there tomorrow. So if I finish it, I can send it down for her baby shower this weekend. Post pics after she sees it.

In quilty news, I received two items I ordered recently...a Supreme Slider and Little Genie Magic Bobbin Washers. They are from Day Style Designs. I happened to see some of her youtube videos on machine quilting. I test drove a Teflon-coated table for machine quilting at the quilt show we attended this past May. It was amazing. I'll let you know how I like it when I use it for the baby quilt today.

Bursting with God's goodness,
Joan

Good news about your daugther!!

I will be interested to hear how your testing goes with the Supreme Slider, I have wondered what they would be like.

Great news!! (Pain free is GOOD! :-D) You'll love the supreme slider. It really makes a difference! Can't wait to see the quilt.
Blessings!

Joan - I'm still having problems responding to your messages that come to my e-mail, when you send ME a comment. My replies to you are returned as a "No Reply" ... that was several days ago. They seen to stay in a queue, for several days and I get the same message several times, so I don't quite understand what date, or what post I'm responding to. Please don't think I'm ignoring you! 8-))

Hope this one 'goes'.
