* * * Happy new year! * * *
I kinda missed it didn't I? What day is it anyhow? I've been very sick, not with a cold or flu, but blood poisoning. (!?!) I finally woke from my fever after three days of deep sleep and loads of penicillin.
|at least it was sunny all weekend (this is me on the couch)|
I don't really recall the past few days except when my children came to kiss me or put their (what felt like) ice cold hands onto my hot hot head. It all started with a little nick on my knuckle. You know the type: the one that gets re-nicked and re-kicked. Well, it got infected. That's all. It must have travelled up my arm and loaded into my lymphs and I was down for the count. (sorry for the gory details, I'm done now.) Incredible really. Today was the day I would go to hospital for an IV if nothing changed. But the fever broke and this is my first day sitting upright. All I can say is:
o m g. the house is a mess.
So I missed our first ever new year's eve house party. I think we'll just reschedule. In the mean time as I sat (upright!!) on the couch this evening, I worked on some embroidery beyond my lone french knot for the first time ever. I picked up a book from Molly and tried out a few on a sample postcard. It's white crochet cotton on red faux suede. Don't ask me why I chose that. I don't have an answer.
Not perfect, but pretty and very fun to try something new!
Oh! By the way! The new PostCardCottage swaps are up. If you are interested in fabric postcards, click on the link in the left side-bar. You can join the group at any time. New swaps go up on the first of each month. If you sign up for one, then you need to make three cards and mail them out by the middle of the following month. I picked some good topics this time, and I think they are nearly full. Check it out if you like!
Other than that, I haven't set foot in my sewing room. I'm still too weak to sit up and think. Take care everyone and I will post again very soon!
