I went to the doctor last week.
He said that I have Vertigo. (you were right, Jean)
He gave me some pills to help with the nausea and dizziness and some exercises to do, once the dizziness was under control.
Unfortunately, the medicine doesn't seem to be helping.
I'm still feeling dizzy and queasy.
I still went to my 'retreat' over the weekend and it was SOOO much fun, in spite of frequent dizzy spells.
It was great getting together with friends and playing with fiber!
I dyed mohair locks (above) and a couple of skeins of yarn that I had spun up previously, from Alice. For the record, all three piles of locks were dyed at the same time, in the same jar!
The 'apricot' yarn looks great with a pale green skein that I had dyed at home, previously.
I am amazed that I got so much accomplished during the retreat because I was (of course) not feeling well after dinner on Saturday evening so I went up to my room to lie down for "a few minutes" and didn't wake up until after breakfast on Sunday!
It was wonderful getting together with friends to spin and knit and dye fiber. We talked and laughed and learned from and inspired each other.
Look at the tiny little baskets & furniture that Alan Greene weaves!
We're going get together again in the fall. We were all imagining sitting on the big porch of the Amish B & B and spinning or knitting as we watch the Amish , horse drawn, buggies go by...
I can't wait!
"I'm glad you're back home, Mom. I MISS YOU when you're gone!"
I miss you too, Dreamer.
It's great to get away but it's always wonderful to come back home.
