Big YO YOs (and a book)

I finished reading this book last week.  I thoroughly enjoyed it!
And I have been working on these really big yo-yos,

choosing borders,
I got the borders on (sorry, I'm saving it for later), and the free-motion paralysis set in, so I started a smaller project using the super giant yo-yos. This time in yellow.
Not too bad.
Today I am resting.  I was sick this morning, and thinking it was a reaction to Metronidazole (or a heart problem), so was heading out the door to the ER when I thought I'd try my asthma inhaler.  Well I'll be darned!  Much better.  I am new to this asthma thing.  I don't wheeze.  I cough.  But this morning it was all about headache, flushed skin, blurred vision, shortness of breathe and extreme fatigue. The antibiotic makes me feel icky, but not usually that icky, so
I will drink lots of good tea.
Which I keep in my Bubba Keg.
And Kitten will maintain her foreign-film watching pose most of the day.

Glad you tried the inhaler! Take care of yourself....asthma can sometimes be unpredictable.

The yo-yos are gorgeous sewn down like this. Will have to give that a try sometime.

Take care,

Karen

Love the yo yo quilt it is darling.
Love that Bubba keg. How many ounces is it.
I'm suppose to drink 75 ounces a day. So far it isn't happening. But part of that can be water out of food. You know fruit, veggies, still never was a water drinker and am trying.

I love how you did up the yo yos, that is a beautiful piece.
That is how I felt today, after trudging through woods for 6 miles, think I am getting too old for that kind of hike, lol. Hope you feel better soon.

Gosh, that's not feeling good thing is a bummer. Especially when it's to the point where you're thinking "ER." Glad you worked it out though. Sheesh.

Love those big yoyo's. Very cool. Fun.

Hope that you are feeling better! My Michael has ashtma (SP?) He uses an inhaler daily and one for emergencies. Like you he coughs. Our air quality has been crummy in this heat. Take care!

Cathy said...
