    Weight Watchers Saturday, ran errands, bought groceries.

    Sunday, went to church and then to breakfast with friends. Just after coffee got poured our 32 yo DS called and said he had a rapid heartbeat that wouldn't resolve and he needed to go to the ER. Left the table, rushed home, picked him up and off to the ER. It took about an HOUR before the triage nurse called him back... they even took people that came in after us back before him.

    When she hooked him up to the BP/Pulse machine she was asking questions and typing and finally realized the machine had inflated and deflated several times. She looked at the machine and then at him and said "Do you feel like your heart just changed rhythm. My DS said 'well, yea, that is why I'm here. They took him back immediately. Long story short -- eventually (late in day) got sent to CCU as his heartbeat at one point was 174 with a BP of 60/40 (Before Meds). Their problem was keeping his blood pressure up while they brought the heart rate down because the meds lower the blood pressure.

    Finally saw a cardiologist late MONDAY afternoon. He got moved to a regular room and they put a 24 hr monitor on him. If that stays stable for 24 hrs then the meds are working and he can go home ... but will have to stay on the meds for the rest of his life.

    Very grateful to the Lord for sparing him!

    I finished the quilt top from Hades. It was a community quilt for guild that had scraps of fabric to put together. Being fairly new to quilting, I'd never tried to design something without a pattern or idea. I made borders and put a churn dash block in each corner. Being a novice, I didn't really understand how to calculate some of the pieces. Long story shortened, I used every scrap I had but finally pieced the thing together. Many bad words and much increase in my BP later, I'm ready to sandwich and will do some straight line quilting and turn it in at next week's meeting. I thought I was a "confident beginner" quilter, but maybe I'm still just a "beginning beginner".

    Not much sewing. Had a houseful of company. 14 adults, 8 children ages 15 months, 2,3,4,5 (2 of them),6 & 10. And some of the adults that acted like 3. All in fun though. Great time.

    I did the shop hop! Visited 123 stores and saw some the neatest websites, bookmarked some and signed up for newsletters from others. All from the comfort of my couch. Been procrastinating starting the next quilt when as I gathered each of the 12 patterns it is exactly what I was searching for! Now so ready to start - right after I finish on this board.

    Was is worth the trip? My daughter lives in Madison and I have thought I should trek up to Beaver Dam sometime when I am visiting her to check it out.

    I cleaned the basement, had to throw out some stuff, told my kids to come and get what belongs to them OR on garbage day it goes. I finally got my sewing machine back from the maintenance dr. Soooo now I can sew till my heart is content. The basement is my sewing santuary, but when the kids moved out they're stuff did not go with them.

    I went shopping on Saturday, and on Sunday, I headed to the basement, began the Laundry, It's right next to my longarm. So I played on my longarm from 7 am until 3 pm, then to my sewing room and quilted on a BOM project. It was a great day.
