Yes, it is. I was pretty sure this was what was going on. Now, after a visit to my doctor, it's been confirmed. I have tinnitus. What's that? A constant ringing in my ears. Cause? Probably age. There's been no ear infection, no continual exposure to loud noises or machinery...nothing new. So far, this constant noise is not keeping me awake or causing me to lose sleep. It's good when I have some music going on around me to distract me from it. Else, it could drive me crazy. Literally.
Go here if you'd like to learn more. And, if you're interested in hearing what I hear, try the little players toward the bottom of this page. The one labelled 'ear ringing sound' is the closest to what I hear. Not quite so high-pitched and not usually that loud. But, like that. All of the time. Day in and day out. Nighttime. Daytime. All. Of. The. Time. It doesn't go away. Fun, hey?
I have some hearing loss as well, so will be having a hearing test in the near future.
Isn't that great news? Actually, I'm looking at it with the 'glass is half full' attitude...there are many more things I could have that would be much more serious and life-changing.
Productivity. With my poppy quilt, I've been making more Rubik blocks. I trimmed the ones I had already finished to make 12.5 inch blocks. The blocks are all variations of this one...
Until I had an idea. How would it look if I made a Rubik block out of a single fabric? So. I took a piece of fabric with the large poppy and cut it into 9 squares and put them together with the sashing...and this is how it looks.
I still need to add the solid borders. It turned out better than I thought it would...and I really like it. I think I'll put a few more together this way. With the other fabrics.
I posted 4 packages today. I apologize for taking so long to send them on their way. Madge, Ann, Jody and Jill...let me know when they arrive, please.
