december 14 - i'm supposed to be in bed, but....

Well, last night got lots worse before it got better! I went to bed with such bad chills I thought I was gonna die. Finally fell asleep (I think) but sometime in the very early morning hours, hubby woke me up and said - we're going to the hospital - apparently I was mumbling all kinds of gibberish (more than usual) and I was kind of hot and he was kind of scared. So off we went and they hooked me up to an IV, took my temp (103) and said it was very good that I was there. I am not a doctor/hospital kind of person. I always think things will pass and I can take care of myself just fine. My mother was like that...she never gave much credence to us when we were sick, so I think I grew up thinking I was always making too much out of anything. Anyway, several hours later, they told me that I had an acute bladder infection, gave me a pill and a Rx, unhooked me and sent me home to bed.

Which is where I am supposed to be, but hubby had to take himself to the doctor for his wrist fracture and one of our dogs was barking like a banshee, so I got up to investigate. There was this weird buzzing sound and funny smell, and I realized it was our doorbell...someone had pushed it in such a way that it got stuck. I hope it didn't burn itself out. I unstuck it but forgot to check it! Oh well, we'll find out later, I guess!

Anyway, since I was out of bed anyway, I thought I would post before my personal doctor comes home and restricts me to my quarters!

I wanted to share some photos with you. Please excuse any wrinkles, etc. These are scans, so they're not the best, but you'll get the idea!

This first is a photo of the adorable snow block I received from Renee in the Stitcher's Timeout block exchange...it's such a cute design. Thanks again Renee!



Next up are the first two blocks I've stitched for next year's exchange. I'm hoping to get them all done before the end of the year. We'll see. First is for the "blue" theme. It is French Country Butterfly from JBW, stitched on a blue opalescent with a variegated thread from Anchor. Not sure that you see all the sparklies, but it's pretty fabric!



This second one is for the "garden" theme. It is a design by Sam Sarah - Patti's Garden. It is actually stitched on a pale yellow fabric but I think it looks more white in the scan. Anyway, I used DMC for this and added beads because I am horrible with French knots!




And last, is the adorable ornament I received from Christine in the Friendly Stitcher's ornament exchange. It is a Mill Hill design and I love it! I don't do much beading and have never attempted on of the Mill Hill kits. This is just so festive in person...real Christmas-y reds and greens, and tiny little jingle bells! I can't wait to put it on the tree! Thanks again,Christine!




Well, time to get more water and head back to the cave! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!
