Moving Slowly, But Making Progress

Well, the first PT maneuver resulted in mild improvement in the vertigo.  At least I can function, however cautiously, during the day.  But getting up out of bed is no picnic.  I keep a walker handy to help me stay upright on the way to the bathroom.  

I spent most of today at the computer with frequent breaks for hydration and range of motion.  I did manage to get down to the sewing room to photograph my fabric pull for the SAHRR.

In addition to the greens and golds above, I found a couple of nice blacks and a closely-matching white solid.  I'm ready for Monday!

While I was downstairs I re-arranged a couple of blocks in Driftwood.  I think I was initially drawn to the pattern by it's "airiness" created by the light pastel fabrics and the alternating directions of the black triangles.

But the side of my brain that requires order rebelled a bit so I rearranged the blocks into a more prominent structure.

While I'm not 100 percent pleased with the design change, I am 200 percent happy with how the majority of the block intersections don't have matching seams!

I still need to look over the arrangement and try to move any blocks that have the same fabrics touching.  With all I need to accomplish around the house -- like put away the Christmas decorations -- before an upcoming vacation, I will probably box this up for completion at the next retreat.


  1. has the doctor said what is causing the vertigo? hope it goes away for you soon

  2. Glad the vertigo is somewhat better. I had a brief episode of vertigo a few weeks ago that was not pleasant, and I feel for you. Your fabric pull is glorious! I like that layout on Driftwood. Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I like your new layout better. More orderly. Vertigo is no fun and even though I have only had very mild cases of it, I don't want it to come back.

  4. Driftwood is just beautiful. I like your new layout, too. I hope your vertigo continues to lessen.

  5. I do like your rearranged Driftwood blocks - the symmetrical look appeals to me! I hope each day is a bit better on the vertigo front.

  6. I REALLY like the revised Driftwood layout. And your fabric pull for SAHRR loots terrific. I hope the vertigo problem eases up soon.

  7. You are so right about the airiness of these fabrics/colours together. Great job with the rearranging too, Libby. Hope you keep improving. Vertigo is no fun but be careful.

  8. Is it just benign positional vertigo or the more severe kind? Have you tried doing the Epley Maneuver? (You can look it up.)
