Snowbird Quilter:
 Roommates Judy E and Deb were a joy, even if Judy T had her doubts about me.  LOL

 

Patty Mac, no doubts at all!  ;-D  Just confirmation of a super fun lady!  Judy E may wish she were there, but she wasn't. You only had one Judy in the room. Seeing double Patty Mac?

Oh my goodness, I have so enjoyed the retreat pictures and reporting.  Thanks every one for sharing your time with us. There were beautiful projects that resulted from your time together.  I watched it longingly while I tried to recuperate from all of the nasty treatments that I went thru this past week.  I was extremely fortunate that what they thought they saw on the echocardiograms did not turn out to be anything at all.  The is no extra tissue growth. There are no clots there is no atherosclerosis. Absolutely clear, the only downer in all of this was that I will have to remain on Coumadin for life, and that is a royal pain.  They kept me overnite and a good thing that they did because I developed a bleed and resulting huge hematoma in the groin area- they had to call the rapid response team as I was failing fast.  Got everything in order though, but OMG you should see the huge bruised area that I have.  Had my thyroid biopsy done yesterday and that was a little traumatic in itself, mainly with the fear that I would bleed from that also.  I am not allowed to drive until Monday and I am going stir crazy.  The purse pattern that I cut out last week to work on now has to wait-- Of course, I miscut one thing and now have to go back for 1/8 of a yard to make the other purse strap-- and I can't drive -grrrr  and they don't even want me to go up and down stairs til next week--no laundry being done here.

Oh well, this too shall pass.  I am now being sent to a new pulmonologist to find out why I am having a problem with my breathing, which is what started off this witch hunt for a solution.   Well, I am off to do some creative work in my quilt room now- at least I can try that.    Ginny

I'll gang,  Nana is on a different flight to Dulles via Denver.  She may miss her connecting flight to Roanoke.  I am still going to Chicago but miss my flight to Knoxville.  I get to stay in Ohare airport for the night and maybe get a flight out tomorrow.  I may see if I can change and travel tomorrow.  This is the third time for this and I'm done with flying anywhere.

Ginny, I'm happy for the good news you got but your original problem never got solved, rats on that!  You've been through a lot so take it easy, your bag will wait for another time.  When you get around to it how about using some coordinating fabric for the straps, that you could find in your own stash I bet.  My T & P will continue for you until they solve your breathing problem.

Well gang, change of flights.  I take red eye out of Portland at 11 tonight to Houston, then on to Knoxville tomorrow morning.  Two hour layover in Houston so won't be rushed between gates.  Best part of the whole deal is FIRST CLASS all the way on their dime.  I mentioned to someone earlier this week that I wanted to fly first class just once in my life to see what it was like.  Guess someone out there is giving me my wish.  Thank you whoever you are.

I'll pray she catches the flight with time to spare.

Dang airlines anyway. You'd think that they could be more efficient. my dad was a ticket agent for Northwest in the 60's and somehow they didn't have the booking issues in the days of Ticker tape that they have now, in an age of instant mass communications.  :S Pray you arrive home with minimal hang-ups. 

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

Hope the first class makes up for all the hassle you've had.

I'm so glad to see everyone getting home safe and sound. Kris, your reporting was top notch! I loved hearing from you so often and I even managed to finish quilting my quilt this week! Yeah!  The amount of quilts and blocks made is simply amazing. Everything is beautiful. I would take any piece and adopt it in my home.  I promise I would care for them!

we just got s@&#% here! not much and it didn't stay, but still...it was here.

I am envious of all the great time you all had. Meeting new friends is always a magic moment. I hope to be able to go in a year or two.
