Daffy's Stitchy Friends

Not myself

I was laid low on Thursday with a stomach virus which resulted in a trip to the emergency room that evening when the cramps became unbearable. The vomiting gave me black eyes and a large red spot in the white of my right eye. A couple of days of anti-nausea and pain medicine and now I'm about as energetic as an overcooked noodle. At least I'm not throwing up or cramping! Although I'm feeling better, I am left with terrible gas and my horrendous farts are about to chase Rick out of the house! Hold your nose, please!

These beauties all arrived over the past few days. Little bright spots in the midst of my misery. I'm involved in a private ornament exchange with a few friends and January is my month to receive...

From Lisa V came this sweet freebie by Erynne stitched up as a little pillow ornament. Look at those cute little Christmas "lights" in the corners! Thank you, Lisa...I love it!


Then from Angela came this sweet Lizzy*Kate kitty. I love his argyle sweater and the plaid hanger! Thank you, Angela!



As if I hadn't already been spoiled, I then received this little Prairie Schooler darling from Lori. I wish you could see all the pretty sparkle in the snowman. The little birds and the green scarf are right up my alley, Lori! Thanks!


OK, I hope I didn't gas anyone to death...

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Lisa said...

That doesn't sound like any fun! Hope you feel better soon.

Glenna said...

Ohhh, poor you! That's a rough virus; I guess they were sure it wasn't food poisoning? Yike! Hope you feel better soon. Think broth, dry toast and stitching!

Myra said...

(Adjusting gas mask-just in case ya know) I am so sorry you were so sick. Stomach bugs can be so nasty and it is a good thing you went to the doctor. I hope you are back to 100% soon.

Lucky you to receive such beautiful ornaments. All of them look fabulous!

Donna said...

Sorry you are sick. Glad you are a little better. Love the gifts.

Julie M said...

That really stinks! Pun intended! Glad you are on the mend but oh my you must have been sick to cause the hemorrhaging in your eye plus the black eyes. ((Hugs))

Your gifts are beautiful!

I'm glad the Dam Birds story was able to tickle your funny bone. I can laugh about it now but boy was I pizzed then. I'll have to post the scrapbook page about the rabbits. That's a funny one too!

mollycaff said...

What beautiful gifts! Sorry you were feeling so rotten, but glad you're on the mend. **Holding nose - just in case LOL**

Pauline said...

Just let that gas rip, girl!!

Tammy said...

So sorry you've been feeling poorly, plz do take care ~ wishing you a speedy and flatulent free recovery. Sounds like what I had in April, to say it was dreadful is putting it politely. Even my doc wanted to hurl when I lost it all in front of her, poor doc, she now has a bio-hazard in her exam room. That'll teach her to avoid making house calls:)

I am glad to hear that you are feeling somewhat better. Although your gas problem sounds like no fun, it is definitely a step up from where you were a few days ago. Hopefully it will pass soon.

I love the gifts that you received. They are just adorable. Take care.

Oh no! I hope that your stomach settles and I am very glad the the vomiting and cramps have stopped.

You received some very lovely ornaments there!!

Sue said...

((((((((((((hugs))))))) I thought about suggesting a cork....but the result could be a disaster of international proportions....The possibility of exploding and expelling the cork like a bottle of champage would be just too much!

Janet C said...

Lovely ornies. Hope you are better already.

Carol said...

Gosh--you sound like you were as sick as my husband was when he ended up in the ER in early December, Sharon. Please take extra good care of yourself...

I'm sure all of those darling ornaments are really helping to cheer you up :)

I hope and pray you are better now. We had that virus going around the assisted living where I work and over 150 people got it, and by the grace of God I never got it.Praise God for that.It was active for over 2 weeks at work .Misrable to see the elderly so sick.We had to wear gloves and masks and most workers got it even then.

Rachel S said...

Hope you feel 100% soon! Love the ornaments! So pretty!
