Stitching update

I had to take a day off work yesterday just to get some stitching in … well, actually it was because I felt like cr*p, and couldn’t face work – my sore throat turned into a bit of laryngitis on Tuesday night, and I hardly slept at all. When I woke up yesterday morning I felt really groggy and as though I’d been run over. This morning I still feel pretty rough – I’m more blocked up in the nose, and my throat is sore again, but my voice isn’t quite as laryngitis-like. Fingers crossed I’ll be OK to get back to work again tomorrow. It does mean, though, that I managed to get a bit of stitching done – and a bit of frogging too ;P I still have two stitches to fix up in the vines that I noticed I managed to miss yesterday, and they’re easily added in – but I’m slowly catching up to you, Carol ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ll continue to get this panel finished (the whole of part 1), then I have to get my ducks RR done to get in the mail by 1 July … then it’s “Dratteds, here I come!!!” ๐Ÿ˜€

Just a quick post today, as my concentration at the computer isn’t great – I tried catching up on some more blog reading yesterday, but I ended up reading most things three times, and gave up. Off to have another Lemsip Cold & Flu, then cuddle up under my blanket again in my not-so-glamorous PJ’s for the day …

(Updated) Crikey, I just realised that I hadn’t posted piccies of my previous stash arrivals … for some reason I thought I’d already done it, but just checked back in my blog posts, and lo and behold nothing was there! Oops – I’d forget my head these days if it wasn’t permanently attached!! Anyway, here are the piccies of stash I received as gifts from some very generous ladies – thanks so much again Cathy and Nancy – your generosity is amazing, and I love everything (I know I’ve sent personal emails already, but just wanted to reiterate it now) ๐Ÿ˜€ Unfortunately blogger is, just for a change, having a hissy fit about adding more photos, so I’ve had to use Photobucket, which of course means you can’t click for a bigger piccie, sorry ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Here are my wonderful spoils from Cathy:

  1. Stitching time can cure a multitude of ills and illnesses! Add to that a nap and a cup of tea.
    Sending you hugs and prayers for a quick recovery, Anne!

  2. You are already caught up with me! I have all the boxers done, but none of the grape border…. and I did do line one of the verse. If you stitch at this rate, it won’t be much of a SAL… I figured we were doing a one day a week thing? Let me know ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Take care – I started off like that and before I knew it, I had a nasty case of bronchitis. You made excellent use of your time – I can’t believe how much you got done on the Bordeux (Mystery) Sampler. It looks GREAT! And what lovely gifties from lovely ladies, too!!

  4. Sorry you’ve been feeling poorly Anne, hope you get better quickly!

    What wonderful stash – I’m sure you’ll enjoy using it all ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the email, you’re a sweetie – will catch up with you properly later. {{{Hugs}}}

  5. Your project looks great! Love all the stash you have as well, what fun. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hope you are feeling better soon!

  6. Yuck! Sounds like you have a doozy of a cold there. *hug* Take care of yourself, rest and feel better soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    BTW, did I spy Just Nan’s Winter Square in the stash pile from Nancy? Very nice!

    Ooops, your Bordeaux Sampler is looking lovely, as well!

  7. You poor baby, Anne! Hope you get over your illness soon. New stash is healing, you know ;-).

    I’m having Blogger upload piccy problems too! I thought it was just me.

    Everything is looking good, and you’re such a fast stitcher. The Bordeau Sampler is going really fast!

  8. Hope that you are feeling loads better soon. What wonderful charts you received, they’ll keep you busy for a while.
    Have a great weekend
