The best I can manage today...

Oh I had high hopes for my week. I was going gangbusters on my Kitchen Sink quilt - all it needs is the borders. And I started laying out my Christmas quilt - all the Christmas fabrics are cut and I remembered I have some cute Nancy Wolff Christmas prints - a flamingo with a Santa cap and Santa in a snazzy sports car. I can tell you this is going to be one busy quilt but I'm loving it! And then came Wednesday evening.... around 10 pm..... I tried fighting it off as long as I could but I couldn't win and boy did I get sick! I haven't been this sick in years. Who knew that projectile vomiting would make abdominal muscles hurt so much? I certainly didn't! So yesterday I spent the entire day laying on the couch counting the hours since I last errped -- I don't recommend this activity for anyone! I was able to keep down a bit of banana and some chicken soup today. I am upright and have spent several hours sitting in my chair working on the picot bind off to my Holden shawlette.

Isn't it pretty? I love it but my brain is so addled that it has taken hours to get to this point - I'm having a lot of problems counting to 4. How bad is that? You don't even need a full hand to count to four! Oh this picture is taken from my chair on top of my laptop. The only reason this post has a picture is that the camera was in a basket next to the chair and I didn't have to get up, cause it hurts to stand up, and cough too -- coughing is not on the agenda today, at all!

Well tomorrow has to be better, doesn't it? Remember I'm giving fabric away on Sunday!

Happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Oh no you've got the yuckies! I hope you feel much, much better very soon!

    You're trying to do too much with your hands - count to four and knit. Way too much for your brain to handle. Stop counting on your hand - stretch your legs out and count your toes. teehee!

  2. Oh yuck!! I do hope you are feeling better and can enjoy your weekend!

  3. I hope you get better soon Carol. I have had the sore muscles before and it sucks. Your picot bind off piece is gorgeous! Hope you feel better tomorrow.

  4. Bless your heart...that is the absolute worst! Please feel better soon!
