Working in the quilt/craft room. I really need a new name...Diva Den...no, I am not a diva. Maybe Needle Nook...not to sure about that. Must think about that a bit more. At any way, here are some before photos.
And...drum roll please... really, it needs a drum roll in my opinion. Here are the after photos.
I did manage to get the window topper completed this evening. Let me tell you about my other little event of the day.
Went out early, in the freezing cold weather, to Walmart to pick up the correct rod to hang the closet curtains on, a rod for the window topper, fabric for a quilt class I am taking this Saturday to match the living room/dining area/kitchen window treatments that I made several years ago. Well I added some longer panels to the dining area windows this past summer, they are west facing so I wanted to block a little more light. Decided to make the quilt class project match the living room and will put it on the couch. It is a Lonestar variation. Okay, back to the point. At any rate, I was in Walmart and had a PSVT attack. Really bad one, lasted longer and more painful than I had ever had. I was too embarrassed to let them call me an ambulance, so I suffered and prayed that I would not pass out in the store. When I realized that I would have to end up going to the ER, I had to go buy a package of pads so I could have some with me. Another stupid moment, shopping with out being prepared. At any rate, I finished my purchase, sat down for a few minutes and then managed to get to the car.
I had to call an ambulance to pick me up from the parking lot. SOOOOO totally embarrassing, but by that point the pain was so intense, dizziness and nausea so strong that I just didn't care any more. Well, I had been battling the episode already for about 20 - 30 minutes before giving in and admitting I had to have some help just to get some relief. When the EMT checked me, my heart rate was only 214. They immediately gave me medicine to bring it down, which didn't work so followed that up with a double dose. Understand, that this medicine, when administered, tightens the chest as if in a huge vice grip. Off to the ER we went to make sure I wasn't having a stroke or anything else. I have to call in the morning to have a follow up visit with my primary doctor. I swear I think it caused a mini stroke because I am having trouble remembering some things one side of my mouth now has a bit of droop to it.
Needless to say, I didn't get anything much accomplished today. Wasn't even able to keep the grand baby and I really feel bad about that.
Well, I am off to take a warm bath and then to bed. Tomorrow is another day and now that I am a day behind, I really need to hit two fabric shops and a local quilt shop tomorrow to pick up some fabric that son's girlfriend picked out so that I can have it on hand to work on her quilt. Also need a coordinating fabric for the Lonestar project to use on the insets. The quilt is shaped kind of like a stop sign.
Thank you for stopping in for a visit, please come again soon.
