Further adventures of Roz

Yesterday, I was happily sewing the tea and coffee quilt when I was suddenly struck by a severe allergy.  I thought that I had a cold at first.  But I started having shortness of breath, so my dear daughter took me to the Emergency room, and the care was excellent there.  Not a cold, an allergy--and they started giving me a ton of medicine, tests, x-rays and the works. They even called in an Internist. So I had to stay in the hospital overnight.  But I came home today, feeling a lot better. I'm allergic to one of two possible things.
Aren't the Olympics super?  I actually stayed up late watching the TV in the hospital room, in order to see the Men's Figure Skating.  I hope to continue work on my quilt this weekend, as I don't plan to go anywhere.  And I have started getting together fabrics for the Amish-style liberated quilt. Amish-style, I like that name.  Reminds me of a Kosher-Style restaurant.  It has Jewish type foods, but they will serve you bacon.
Ha ha!  I figured how to spell check my Posts!  I copy the post to Microsoft Office Word and spell check it there.

Hope you are feeling much better and they find you are not allergic to quilting. That would be terrible.

Hi, Roz! Oh my goodness, a night in the hospital! I hope you're better now and that they figure out what you need to stay away from!

Your I love coffee quilt is really cute! And your daughter's friend will love the I Spy -- absolutely perfect for a little one. :)

Hope they figure out what caused the reaction. Allergies are not something to mess around with. I have one to food dyes that results in hives that close my air passages. Not fun.

eek, hope you are physically fit and allergy-free now!

I was given an Amish quilting book.
It's what I used for my little bar codes quilt. I love those quilts, but I also don't hand quilt and think I might be wasting my time.
The other problem I have is I also, other than white, don't have many plain fabrics. I'm using my stash binns before I buy anything more...I think.

Ack! A night in the hospital! Glad to hear you're home now and feeling better. Hope the doctors truly have pinpointed the source of your allergies. That can be a very tricky business.

When I realized I had to stay up until midnight to see the best of the figure skating competitions I gave up on seeing the stuff I most wanted to see. I require so much sleep that I can't make it past 10 pm most nights. We don't currently have a way to record anything either. Very frustrating, to say the least!
