Hubby is still in the hospital -- day #13 -- but they have finally found an antibiotic that the infection is responding too so he is getting so much better. Still a long road ahead, but we are making progress. God is so GOOD! Thanks to my blogging friends for their comments and prayers.

Thank goodness I remembered to grab my laptop (which has become another appendage to my body -- LOL) and bring it to the hospital. It has been a lifesaver for me and has kept me occupied when not doing things for my honey. You see, his leg is so swollen that he can't bend it, can't walk and is pretty much bedridden. I've been reading blogs, Facebook, playing games, etc.
I am doing lots of reading and embroidery. I'll get some pictures posted after we get home since I don't have my camera with me.

The following are the BOM's from the internet that Kathleen has been working on. She is really doing a great job "keeping up".
Of course, we have to EAT while we are at retreats! This is the group at the Durning House Bed and Breakfast. The placed was really neat and I loved their decorating.
The following is the group at a local Mexican Food Restaurant (don't remember the name right now). The food was "okay" but the margaritas were to die for!!!!
MARSHA, MARSHA, MARSHA! 9/16 inch, 9/16 inch, 9/16 inch. We kept hearing someone muttering these words over, and over and over. We realized it was our Wacky Buddie, Molly. Molly is a pattern tester for Marsha McCloskey testing a new feathered star pattern. Here she is working on that block. Lookin' good Molly!
TA DA!!!! The block is done!
Of course, you have to drink a glass (or three) of wine while retreating. Here is Kathleen enjoying the wine. Really...she drank it out of a glass and not straight from the bottle but it sure makes a great picture!
Here is a picture of a Halloween table runner that I was working on.

Notice the metal rooster on the shelf of this quilt rack. My Hubby made the rack years ago.
Rooster lamp sitting on the cabinet in my kitchen. I bought this lamp on one of my "shopping adventures" in the Hill Country.
Simple little rooster holding a chalkboard that I purchased on EBay.
Another "Hill Country" purchase -- Americana rooster which hangs on the side of my cabinet.
The centerpiece on my kitchen table is made from an old plow blade with the rooster feet. It really looks better than the picture shows. BTW, that's a candle with fruit around it.
A rooster in the corner of the cabinet, a rooster picture frame, and a small rooster hanging from the cabinet knob. Also, please don't be offended by that cookbook -- it stands for Babe In Total Control of Herself -- a gift from a quilting friend who has at the big quilting bee in Heaven.
Rooster rug at the entrance to my kitchen; there are several more througout the kitchen.
My 'prim rooster/hen" sitting in the basket.
A simple metal rooster than hangs from a beam in the kitchen.
My favorite rooster -- Jim Shore -- it stands about 2-1/2 feet tall.
Here is a crooked picture of the rooster that roosts on the mantel.
A big metal rooster that sits on the floor of the kitchen.
A set of soup bowls and soup tureen (isn't that the word?).
This rooster hangs on the door that goes from the game room into the kitchen.
My rooster chandelier that hangs over my kitchen table.
