How Do You Spell Relief? -- P E N I C I L L I N

It's been quite a week here, but not a whole lot of needlework happening. After returning from my trip to Kansas, I came down with a nasty case of strep throat which, as my luck would have it, didn't really kick in until Friday night of the long holiday weekend. I kept thinking it would be better the next day, but it never was. As it happened, I already had a doctor's appointment set up for Tuesday morning, so besides going over follow-up lab work which was the original purpose of the appointment, I also got a good once-over and a rapid strep test which was positive.

So now here I am 3 days into a 10 day cycle of good old trusty penicillin and I'm finally starting to feel better and be able to sleep during the night. What a relief!

I have had a chance to do just a small amount of handwork but nothing is finished. One thing I still need to do some little bit of finishing on is my third Pay It Forward gift which is going to Jane. If you know anything about Jane, you know she loves PINK. So I would not be letting any cats out of the bag, so to speak, if I mentioned that this item I am working on is PINK...very PINK! And it will be even PINKer when I'm done with it! After she receives it, I'll share pictures of it with you.

I mailed off my second PIF to Myra last week and am anxiously awaiting word that she received it before showing you what her little treats were.

I also finished the second Country Cabin Doll quilt and the three matching pillows for the band yard sale this Saturday. It's about time those go somewhere to be used and loved by some little doll.

Now it's about time for a cup of tea before I get back to work on the Oddball Baby Blankets I received in the mail the other day. I have two crocheted blankets to finish and one knitted, so those will keep my hands busy for a few days anyway. Perhaps I'll have a new stitch or border to share if I get creative enough to come up with something that I haven't already done!

Happy Stitching!

  • So glad you're getting better, I know how horrible it is to not be able to sleep at night.

    I just wanted to say thank you for granny square video tutorial. I finally bit-the-bullet and sat here with yarn and hook in hands.
    I'll admit my first one went really wrong somewhere, but the following two have turned out great!
    I'm loving how fast they work up and anytime I get stuck, I just go back to the point in the clip that I need.
    I'll definatly be using more of your tutorials to learn how to do something more :)
    Thanks again
