Falling charms the design wall

I have been messing with fabric again...just a few minutes here and a few minutes there.  Some of these are from scraps.  Some not.  I was going to make something small...but just kept making more and more blocks.  Now I have ran out of the tan/brown.  So, I either introduce another color at this point or I stop here and add borders and call it quits.

Or what I will probably do is put the blocks away.  I haven't decided what I am going to do.  I need to get busy and finish up another project.  But for right now, I am not doing anything.
****************
Roger has been breaking out again.  It started 3 or 4 weeks ago.  We could not get him into his dermatologist till in January, so he went to the family doctor and got a shot of steroids and some oral steroids.  They gave relief at first, but a day or two after finishing the oral meds, he started breaking out a bit more.

To make a long story short, he has been through h*LL...
This is after his hands started to  heal when on the steroids.  I don't have pics of any fresh breaking out.  He breaks out in patches...there will be a place here, and a place there...

I finally got him to agree to let me call my dermatologist and see if I could get him an appt up there.  So I got up yesterday morn, and he could see the Nurse Practitioner up there.  So we will see where this leads.  She is approaching it from different angles.  She took a biopsy of the freshest place on his leg, she took a swab from his hands.  They look worse than now than when the photos were taken.

She is took blood to check several things....it will be a while before we get the results of it all.  In the meantime she gave him some steroids that he rubs on the spots, and and gave him an antibiotic ointment.  His itching is not as intense...

We had our Thanksgiving meal this past weekend...it just worked out best that way.    We are in the process of eating leftovers now for the rest of the week...LOL

Roger's hands look so painful, I sure hope something can be done for him at your dermatologist, and that it won't be long before he can get some relief. The quilt is wonderful and I am always impressed with your creativity. Glad you had a very nice early Thanksgiving. I'd like to wish you a Very Happy Thanksgiving Rose.

That is a lovely quilt. I do hope the dermatologist will come up with something that works for Roger's skin problem.

Roger's hand looks a LOT like my husband's hands, Rose. My husband discovered he's allergic to many chemicals in wood. Did you know some woods can cause allergies?

Sandra said...

oh poor roger.. that looks like a horror to me, i can feel the itch just looking at it... i hope it is something they can find a drug for...there are so many things it could be...

That rash looks really annoying, so I hope he gets it resolved soon. Have a really special Thanksgiving Day, eating your leftovers.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all

Love your patchwork. I often have the same problem with knitting and crochet. It's really annoying when you run out of supplies. Wishing your husband better. All the best, Bonny
