First, and foremost, Marilyn wants to remind you all that the End of the Month, End of the Bolt sale is this Saturday, September 29th. 
Yes, it’s that time again - end of month, end of bolt sale!

Marilyn is now in Clearwater and beginning her rehab.  She needs about a week to get on her feet and then she will be open to evening visits after Friday, October 5th.  As you can imagine, she is working very hard to get up and running again!  It's hard to keep a good woman down.

CQB's Injured Reserve List Update

I just heard from John, Marilyn's husband, and I have new information to post regarding the CQB's Injured Reserve List.  Tomorrow our star pitcher will be transported back to Clearwater in an ambulance.  She will go directly to the Madonna Ptak Morton Plant Rehabilitation Center located on Corbett Street near downtown Clearwater.  She will continue with her rehabilitation here.  As soon as I hear more details I will post them on our blog.  Stay tuned!

The Game Must Go On!

We are back from the Jacksonville QuiltFest but we have left our star pitcher behind! Marilyn is now on the CQB's Injured Reserve List! Here's the story.... on Thursday night while walking back from one of our favorite restaurants in Jacksonville, Marilyn slipped on the pavement and fell and broke her hip. Yes, you read that correctly, she broke her hip! She had surgery on Friday night at the Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida, to repair her bone with a pin and screws. Marilyn came through the surgery like a champ and has begun rehabilitation. To further illustrate how upbeat she is below is a photo we took of her in the emergency room.
  And here Marilyn is doing her very best to look sad and get some worked for about  five minutes. 
Below is a photo taken on Saturday night.  As you can see Marilyn is doing great after her surgery.  Happy to have friends around and anxious to get on with recovery and to get back to Clearwater!

Check back often and as we are made aware of any changes or milestones we will post them here.  Stay turned!
