TGIF!

First of all I want to say a huge thank you and send hugs to everyone who left get well wishes, hugs etc for me on my post from Tuesday. I am so touched by them all. Unfortunately I am still not feeling too good and I am so fed-up. I was hoping to have felt that bit better by now but I suppose I have to be patient. I am taking one antibiotic a day as per the doctor's instructions. His first choice was penicillin but as I'm allergic to that I have to have something different but this one will lower my iron absorbsion rate (I'm on iron) plus I have to avoid sun! Good job I'm not getting out although we've had quite a lot of rain so it wouldn't be a problem. I have just been round to the PO with Abi by my side keeping me safe to post my redwork exchange but ended up bringing it back home because I don't have a house number for the lady in question and, apparently, there's 40 odd houses on the road where she lives!

Thank you also to those of you who left birthday messages for Jessica. I haven't had chance to show them to her yet as she's gone out for the day with a friend. I was quite upset that I am ill and it was her birthday but we sat quietly yesterday morning and watched Spiderman 3 which she got for her birthday then one of her friends bought her Constantine so while she watched that I sat in another room ( I don't like films like that!) She went out with some friends to the cinema on Monday for her birthday and they saw Wall-E which she loved. When I am feeling better we will go out for a bar meal or something.

I have been steadily stitching as it takes my mind of how I feel. I haven't stitched on A Quaker Christmas as yet this week but I have done some on Sea Stars and Tiny Treasures Letter J so have those to show as well as my bit on Blackbird Designs Rites of Spring. As you can see I have now altered the T in rites to look like a t rather than an f. Love how this is looking and am now about halfway.

Tuesday evening and Wednesday afternoon I did a bit on Sea Stars. I decided to be brave and start the big motif as I've been putting it off for long enough. It stitches up quite quickly really as I got quite a good bit done.


Finally I did 11 rows on page 2 of HAED TT Letter J so I am happy with what I got done.


It was my intention last night to get Quaker Christmas out but I just did not feel like stitching on it so I am hoping to have a go tonight. I had wanted to do some smalls stitching but there might be a rethink for this week. Some changes are afoot with my rotation but I'll save that for another time!

Sorry I'm not very chatty this post but I am sure you will understand. Take care everyone and have a wonderful weekend! A warm welcome to all my new readers:)

Hugs

Nice progress Sally, hope you feel better soon.
{hugs}

Ruth said...

Sally, your stitching is beautiful as usual, but I want you to get to feeling yourself fast! A swirling room is not fun at all.

healthy thoughts!

Carol R said...

I hope you will feel better soon.
Lovely stitching pics.

tkdchick said...

Sally I certainly hope you're on the mend with your new drugs!

Your WIP's are looking fantastic of course! I keep trying to do multiple projects at once but somehow I keep reverting to the old one at a time routine!

Jean said...

I'm sorry to hear you aren't feeling better! Hopefully you will turn the corner soon and feel great!! Be patient!

Your stitching is gorgeous! I think the t looks really good. I have a tendency to change letters when they don't look like the appointed letter. It drives me crazy when a word looks like it's spelled wrong just because of how the pattern has designed a letter. Stop by my blog and you'll see how I struggled with the alphabet omitting letters as was the custom in the olden days!

Rites of Spring is beautiful Sally.

Oh no, my blog isn't fixed yet, I tried starting a new one and it's working for now, I'm just spending my morning posting messages on all the blogs I normally read, so they all know where I've disappeared to.

So in case I miss anyone, http://fireflydreams.wordpress.com
I'm sure Sally won't mind.

Hope you're feeling better today.

sammyjo said...

Hey sally, sorry to hear that your feeling unwell i hope you get better soon!

The stitching is looking good though and with you being stuck in doors i guess it means more time to stitch :D So i guess thats the silver lining in the cloud :D....Maybe

Joei said...

Your wips are looking great. I like the colors in the Rites of Spring.
Get well soon.

Christine said...

Sorry you are still poorly, but at least avoiding the sun shouldn't be too hard at the moment!

Rites of Spring definitely looks better now you've changed it

Hazel said...

Hi Sally. Sorry you're still not so good. Love your bb Rites of spring. Some nice progress. xx

Sharon said...

Sorry to hear you still aren't feeling welll. Hopefully, by the time you get this you will be! Wip's look great and as always I love the sea stars.

Hopefully by now you are feeling better. What rotten luck to be ill and not be able to enjoy the birthday. I'm not into creepy movies like that either, but if you get a chance to see Wall-E later I think you'll really enjoy it, I know I did (Kung Fu Panda and Mama Mia were also fun). Sea Stars and the others are looking great.
