Thanks for the warm welcome. I just joined but I have been active in other forums for nearly twenty years. My diabetes is very well controlled with an A1c of 4.8 for more than 2.5 years. My last A1c earlier this year (January) slipped a bit to 4.9 due to holiday season excesses but I have been back on track ever since. I joined primarily to help others but have been too busy with other priorities.

Hi Marie, at some point we had a conversation about my late wife's quilting. My daughter is visiting and we got out one of her quilts to show to her new husband, so I finally got around to taking some pics. Billie did this when my daughter was 3 or so. She copied pictures from a book we had called "Orange Crate Art". I thought she was crazy when she embarked on this project, but she pulled it off. It's all machine embroidered and machine quilted. There are 12 panels all together. The quilting pattern is an orange surrounded by leaves as it would appear on the tree.

Hi Marie: Yes, Brande and I just got married on January 11, on the beach below our house! There are ways that the world is changing for the better. And thanks for the compliment, if you have any suggestions for a blog topic that I might tackle (keeping along the lines of my typical themes) I'd be happy to consider it/have suggestions. That top 10 tips has gotten a lot of mileage! And thanks to YOU for all you do! A wonderful community, so nice to have.

Hi Marie, Thanks again for the card. It was really nice to get it. Rick sent one too so I felt really cared about! Thanks too for info about Reed. I hope he is strong enough to come home soon. I hope he is hanging in there. How unfortunate. Wouldn't you know he would break a hip. If anyone can, it is he who will overcome it.
There is a question on my page from diabeticmom about a pump. I said I would let you know about it. Thanks, Ellen

Marie, I tried calling Reed's room last night and there was no answer. Then I called the main # and they said yes, he was still a patient there. Has anyone been in contact wit him?

Hi Marie
The cake was actually not supposed to get so tall, but i kinda screwed up and that's what came out ;P On the other pic of the cake on my page you can see that it is basically a vertical roulade, and i just made the slices too large, that's why it ended up so tall and not very wide…
I have been missing you lately, but am glad you are doing good, even though you are busy. Hope this quilt event will go well and smoothly.
it is awesome you were able to help out those d-grandmothers, it makes stuff a lot easier if you see that other people do this just fine and with an attitude and confidence like you!
hugs, and take care

Hi Marie, thanks for the wishes! I had a nice evening with my family, even though I had to study as well, but the cake was indeed delicious!!
Here's a pic:
On my page you can see another one from the inside of the cake :)
If i were you, I would still celebrate diaversaries, it's always good to remember and celebrate the accomplishment one has done over the past year!!
