I still receive my daily Flylady e-mails to help me

and DIL asked me to bat and quilt this. 
With my shoulder acting up, I only got around to it now and it was the

Freestyle quilt continued

Being rid of my frozen shoulder
After 2 months of pure hell in pain, I got a cortisone
injection directly into my shoulder and I IMMEDIATELY (sounds unbelievable but
