I have been a slacker for too long! My last post was about summer finally arriving and now we are getting close to summer being over. It has been a very busy time for me.
On July 27 DH had a TIA (transient ischemic attach) aka mini stroke. His symptoms were loss of balance, weakness on the right side and I heard him fall in the bathroom at about 5:00 AM. I got up and he was on the floor and told me he had fallen 3 times prior to this. I knew we had to go to the ER immediately. We got there about 5:20 AM and after tests and CT scan they told us of the diagnosis. He stayed in the hospital over night for observation and is now using a walker to get around. Hopefully, he will be able to gain his strength back on his right side. The veins in his head were constricted but not blocked and no bleeding or blood clots.
Now, on to some quilting news. I went to a quilting retreat this past weekend which was just during the days - not overnight. It took place in the activity room of the fire department in a nearby town and was organized by one of the members of my quilt guild. We had a mystery quilt to make and were told to bring fabrics of certain sizes and amounts, but not having any idea of what the quilt would be like it was just a guess. At the last minute I threw a FQ bundle in that I had gotten at the quilt show in Corvalis (2 posts back). It was cheap and was fabrics that I normally wouldn't buy. But, those fabrics turned out to be perfect for this project! Here is a picture of the wall hanging that I made - not quilted yet.
