Cross Stitch, Erica Michaels, Finishes

Just in time for Valentine’s Day

I managed to put the final stitches into Random Hearts just before midnight last night – the only thing I changed is to replace one tiny heart with one little red heart button.  I have to say I really enjoyed stitching this one, and absolutely love it now it’s finished! 😀

Unfortunately overnight I got attacked by a virus that left me with a touch of vertigo this morning, so I’ve been laid up in bed ever since – while I’m not quite 100% at the moment, I’m OK enough to sit up so I thought I’d jump online for a few minutes while I can.  Not entirely sure if I’ll risk doing any stitching … I’ll probably just put the goggle box on with a DVD and jump back into bed again – so much for those wonderful finishing plans I had for the day (plus I had to cancel my haircut this morning which is reaaaaaallllllly overdue – I was going nowhere near a car in that state earlier).  Fingers crossed it’s a short-term bug, ‘cos I need to be right by Wednesday night to get on a plane for Erin’s service!!

Rightio, time to go find a DVD that’s really long and means I don’t have to keep getting up …

  1. Oh you poor old thing, another bug 😦 Hope you are feeling a lot better…
    I love, love, love your Random Hearts finish, just makes me want to sing ‘when the moon hits your eye…..
    The button is an extra nice touch too 🙂

  2. Gorgeous! Perfect shade of red too! I stitched that one in pink for an exchange a while ago and enjoyed stitching it too!
    Sorry to hear you have vertigo, hope it’s a short term thing and is gone as quick as it came.

  3. Several years ago I came home from work with at migraine. I took one of my expensive pills and laid down for a bit. When I got up I had developed positional vertigo. I had to carefully hold my head for months. If I held my head back to rinse the shampoo out in the shower I had to grab the sides of the shower! Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Nicely done! I hope you were able to recover in time. Since we haven’t heard from you, I’m assuming you were able to take off successfully. Glad you’re getting another trip home, though I’m very sorry for the occasion. Safe travels!
