Blah!

Poor Abi has been down this week with the sickness bug that's doing the rounds again. She hasn't actually been sick but been feeling it and looked so pale and awful. She's had three days off school but was feeling well enough to go back today. Tuesday after tea I felt awful and thought I was going to pass out so I don't know if I've picked up the bug or what but let's just say I am sick and tired of feeling ill and I'm so fed-up with everything. I feel as though I get no support in anything anymore and just get taken for granted. I won't say anymore as my blog will get boring ( or is it already?) so I'm zipping it as I don't want to lose my readers.

So I only have an update on Queen this week as I didn't stitch on Sea Stars at all so I reckon Karen will have got more done now:) I didn't get that much done on Queen as the cashmere stitch row seemed to take ages to finish but I had to get a bunny done at least:) Isn't he/ she a cutie!

I have finished stitching Kyrie's PIF gift but still have to make it up so I hope to get that done soon. I'm not sure how it's going to turn out as I missed some backstitch off and didn't realise until it was too late when I'd pulled fabric threads. Ever get the feeling you really shouldn't be allowed near fabric and threads?!!! I've also got half a page of Chris' RR done. The fabric she chose is lovely to stitch on and I really enjoyed the bit I got done. I may sit and stitch more on it this afternoon.

I have the February JA/S&S SAL challenge to start yet but at least I have an idea of what fabric and thread I'm going to use providing the fabric is a bit enough piece. We are doing Dragonfly Stitches Valentine Heart this time and it's really pretty so I really want to stitch it. Reveal day is 22nd Feb this time ( I think!).

I'm hoping my first Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers chart and fabby ( yes Helen I am still on the chart wagon!) will arrive this week. As far as I know Drema despatched them last week as some of the girls on the Blackbird Designs Yahoo group have got theirs. I'm hoping to take part in the SAL there starting 15th Feb but I don't think my threads will arrive in time as I ordered them in JJ's superbowl sale and haven't heard anything yet. I know they get really busy at sale times though so I will just have to wait:)

I'm going to catch up on blogs for an hour or so then I suppose I better do some housework! Hope everyone is having a good week! {{{{hugs}}}}

I am slightly ahead of you Sally (both bunnies/hares done) but dont worry you will have two weeks of stitching while Im not here so by the time I get back you will be nearly done.

Sally, so sorry you're not feeling well. I totally understand being tired of feeling bad and not getting any help when you do feel bad. Hopefully you'll feel better soon. If not, your package from the lovely Drema might make you feel at least a little better, new stash always seems to help my mood!

Queen is looking lovely. It's really coming along so nicely. Just love the bunny on this one.(Ok I love all bunnies, but he looks so adorable there.)

Feel better soon Sally. My daughter emailed to tell me all four of them were down with something called Novovirus. It sounds horrid.
Your Just Nan is looking lovelier than ever. The bunny is so cute.
I'm so tempted to sign up fot the Loose Feather Club this year as well. Wonder how long it'll be before I cave.

Both Spring Morning and Queen are looking so pretty. I love the colors in both of them. Sorry to hear that Abi has been feeling ill, and then you seem to have caught it as well. I hope your household is all feeling better soon. Also sounds like in general things might be a bit rough right now, so {{hugs}}

Sally, whenever you are feeling unappreciated just remember that those of us whose blogs you write such lovely comments on appreciate you a lot! You are such a nice person and deserve the very best. Your Queen is looking fabulous - I can't wait to see it finished and framed.

Michelle said...
