Last Monday, I went to Curves.  As you know I have been going to Curves since about the first of the year.  I really enjoy it and feel that it is good for my health.  I don't know what I did but I messed up my leg really, really bad.  I have been in severe pain since Monday.  I have used ice, heat and Tylenol to no avail.  Finally yesterday, I went to the Clinic.  I needed something for pain.  They didn't really say what I did but they gave me a shot (anti-inflammatory) and two prescriptions one a heavy duty Motrin and the other is Hydrocodon.  I am still in severe pain, but maybe a teeny bit better.  They say at the Clinic that my dr. might want to do an MRI.  I see her on Thursday. 

I am not one to watch TV very much.  I have been glued to it.  I do not have the energy or the ability to get up and down to do my machine sewing so have been doing a lot of hand sewing.  I have been working on my hexagon - English Paper Piecing - project.  You have seen this in its beginning stages.  I am coming to the end of adding pretzels. 

Ignore the background pieces.  That is another quilt that I will be finishing up soon.  Actually you can see two quilts in the background. 

You need to click on this picture so you can see a larger version.  There is a pattern  - can you see it? 

The next time you see this it may be finished, that is the top.

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day and many thanks to all past and present military people and their families for all your many sacrifices that you have given to this country.  Many probably don't realize that without your sacrifices we would not have a country.  Again Thank you, thank you, thank you.......
