Drawing Soon - and one more great prize

So sorry about not getting to the drawing - I am still taking names.

There has been some excitement around here - on Saturday I went to a sew-in in Anacortes - about an hour southwest of here. Don goes with me and putters around the town - antique stores - thrift shops - library - lunch out, and sometimes stops by the sew-in to "chat with the girls". Well, he hasn't been feeling super lately - some little episodes of faster, harder heartbeat and a tiny bit dizzy - though never both symptoms at the same time.

While at Anacortes he had more and more symptoms and felt worse and worse after each one - sort of like the flu. It only lasts a few moments - but he decided he had had enough and we rushed off to the ER - they monitored and tested and poked and prodded - and nothing. They ruled out a lot of things - but couldn't find out anything for certain - and of course no episodes while in the ER.

So he is back to his normal schedule - has seen his primary care physician - is waiting for a visit to the cardiologist next week and things are still hectic. Seems all we have done lately is run to doctors - today I have a dermatoligist appt, and then we are done except for figuring out this dizzy thing.

So that is why no drawing - I need to get all the names written on slips of paper and do a drawing - hopefully very soon - so have patience.

I've added another drawing - since you've all been so patient about this. A small stack of my hand painted fabrics will be added to the other prizes listed in the previous post - they are just lovely. You can see some of my crazy quilt blocks made with these hand painted fabrics. The colors I'll be giving away aren't necessarily the ones in the photo (just had that photo handy) - but it will be a lovely little stack of fat quarters. So leave a comment and/or mention this on your blog - and get more chances to win. Drawing soon!!!!

That is so sweet of you to add more, but what we are really thinking about is your husband, how about an inner ear infection? has that been ruled out, so simply yet can make you very dizzy, keep us posted please.

hope you get some answers soon.
Those fabrics are to die for! I love handpainted fabrics. There are never two alike!

Have they checked on his carotid arteries? My Mom had a lot of heart worries and once they cleared the carotid artery, she was so much better. It was like night and day.

I hope they figure out what is wrong and it's a quick and easy fix for Don (and you!). As you well know medical stuff isn't fun! I tried linking to your blog from mine and I have no idea if I did it correctly.

You did it fine, Julie. That's why I am here, and I am surprised at myself that Jo is not on my regular blogtour. Hope Don is doing well.

Glad things are going relatively well, keep your chin up. These medical things can be so tiring, all the waiting and not knowing.

The fabric is beautiful, you are such a talented lady.
