Missing in Action

I’ve been giving my computer a wide berth over the last couple of weeks … I’ve had a set-back with my health, after going back to square one with a viral relapse two weeks ago and feeling like death warmed up.  I’ve been struggling to get through work every day, and after a full 4 weeks of feeling like cr*p, I ended up back at the GP’s office this week after dislodging a rib from trying to cough up my lungs on Thursday morning.  After finding I had a temperature (which is totally unheard of for me), and kept bursting into tears all morning I’ve ended up off work again to try to recuperate.  My “immunity is knackered” (direct quote from the GP), so I’m taking it easy, and continuing to take some time away from the PC.

I think my Mum is missing my blog posts, however, so I’m making an effort to catch up quickly with my latest stitching before switching off again.  I owe some people emails, and will get on top of that shortly …

While I’ve been offline I’ve managed the following stitching finishes:

  1. I was worried about you, I feared you had something like this… sorry to hear it is so bad. I hope you can stay home and rest and continue with the stitching, which is fantastic, I love the Leporello!

  2. I’m sorry you have been feeling so awful, especially when it drags on forever. Your stitching is really lovely. Hopefully stitching can take your mind off feeling like cr*p for a little while!

  3. Anne, I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been so ill. I do hope you’ll be able to return to good health in no time, and stay there!! Take care!

  4. {{{hugs}}} Anne. I’m so sorry you’ve been sick. I hope you’ll feel better soon.

    You’ve got some nice finishes!

  5. oh darling girl – take care of yourself – lots of sleep and good food – soup – soup is wonderful!

    I’m sure while we will miss you – we wont begrudge you some time to recuperate!

    Love Tannia and Billy

  6. {{{{{{Anne}}}}}} Hope you are beginning to feel better

    Your stitching is so beautiful, I love the little bird ornie 🙂

  7. Sending you hugs for a quick return to robust, virus-busting health, Anne!

    You’ve done some glorious stitching while away from us and your blog. That had to have bucked up your spirits. 🙂

  8. So sorry that you’re ill – but your stitching is stunning! Especially the Leporello, that was my favourite panel in the lot.

  9. So that’s why you’d been quiet. Oh Anne, you need to take better care of yourself – less gallivanting and more staying at home stitching. Yeah I know – boring! But if living quietly for a while can restore your health, it is worthwhile. I can’t understand how you can stitch so beautifully when you feel so horribly!
