I haven't posted in a while. As most of you know I went on a sewing cruise last year with Missy Billingsley. We leave this year on Saturday to drive to Fl. The ship is leaving on Sunday afternoon. We lost one of our "Sewing Sisters" in Feb, so this year her daughter is going with us. We are going to try to do our best to celebrate Betsy's life. She loved sewing and teaching sewing classes. My health is not as good as it was last year. I have fibromyalgia and with the new laws it's hard for me to get my pain pills. I will let you know about when we get back on Sunday Oct 8.

Have a fun time and great stitching! Can't wait to see what you make this time.

Have a wonderful time. The trip will do you the world of good.

I am sure you will have a lovely time. It will be a healing time for your friends daughter to be able to come and spend some time with you also. Sending prayers you can get some pain relief too

I'm so glad you are going on the sewing cruise again this year. I know it will be different but I'm sure Betsy's daughter is going to have the time of her life with you all. I think so many meds are now on a list. What a shame for those who need them, like you. Health care is getting harder and harder to use, I think. But go have a wonderful time and I will be looking forward to seeing your pictures. Is Missy teaching again?

I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. I know this trip will be "different" without her with you. I am sure you will all remember her fondly as you celebrate her life. I hope you have a wonderful time. I feel for you with the new pain medication laws as I have the same difficulty. I can understand the reasons behind the law, but for those of us who need them to function, it decreases quality of life.
