A "What was I thinking" Moment

Last week I got an email saying www.fabric.com had designer quilting fabrics at 50%. I immediately went shopping. All of these 1/2 hard cuts were $2 each. And one was miscut and a full yard! But why can't I notice that the darn thing says (or does it??) "canvas"?? I mistakenly got these six Denise Schmidt pieces as canvas. Makes me so angry because I LOVE them.
Fortunately all of these are just fine. Managed to cut the brown one on the far left out of the picture - it's just like the turquise print.
There's just one fly in my ointment now. Three days ago I awoke with severe pain in nearly every joint. I have been whooped tired too. I spent 2 hours at an ER yesterday with all 3 youngens in tow. No fun. No real idea what has happened. Maybe Lyme disease. Maybe RA (not liking that prospect). Maybe a mystery. Today my hands and feet are swollen and partially numbing. Blood work will be back today on the Lyme, but I have another visit to a doc today on account of the sudden swelling. I haven't sewed in 3 days which is making me stirr crazy. My quilt must be delivered tomorrow too for the quilt show next weekend. And as if that's not enough, my SIL and neices are here for 2 days from Italy - haven't seen them in 18 months. AND (there's more...) looks like I need to locate a jeweler to cut off my rings. Kind of depressing to be in pain and immoble, AND to have to have my $10K wedding rings hacked off. Sigh-
...I just wanna sew :-)

Hope you find out what's wrong and heal fast. Drink veggie juice, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, sleep!

Oh, you poor thing! Are you up to fondling fabric? I hope you're feeling better and well again soon.

OMG you are in a bind. I hope they figure out what is going on and soon. Maybe your SIL can take the kids out for a day and you can rest a bit. Best wishes for a speedy recovery

wow...the ring thing super sucks. I do not do well in pain and am that way fairly often. Hate it if it interferes with me getting to craft. And the girls aren't impressed either... mommy is much happier/nicer when doing something.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well and unable to sew - hope you're back to 100 percent soon!
