SYMPATHY PLEASE!

Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who wished me better after my raging tooth infection, unfortunately my tooth wasn't listening and I was back at the dentist on the following day and prescribed stronger antibiotics with root canal treatment booked in for that Wednesday. 
Still my tooth didn't listen and despite numerous injections to numb it still it raged on so I had antibiotics injected as a last resort (still with me or if you're anything like me out for the count when it comes to injections and needles) and thankfully this worked BUT made me throw up so back I went on Friday and another concoction prescribed and thankfully it has now settled and I have a week off before returning.

So instead yesterday I went down with a rotten cold and have now been up since 2am with a high temperature, continual runny nose and my usually very controlled asthma has made an unwelcome appearance too!!!

Yep, I'm feeling very sorry for myself (lots of aahhs please) and Tilly has missed her fun playtimes whilst I've moped around . . .


Tilly, we need something to cheer us up . . .
and Lesleyanne (Lesleyanne's Life of Stitches) did exactly that with a RAK delivered by the Postie on Tuesday morning

Lesleyanne had contacted me to say she had something in her stash which although she loved would probably never get round to stitching and it was screaming my name at her ~ Bunnies Galore by Brittercup Designs, it couldn't have been more perfect, I love it and it's taken position high up the 'to-do' pile once my Autumn and Halloween stitchies are complete ~ thank you so much Lesleyanne, bunnyhops and smiles all round xxx

Sleeping seems to be something I once did a long time ago and having such a painful mouth meant it even hurt to put my head on a pillow so I've burnt the midnight oil (and much beyond) on many nights recently stitching Spooky Row by Bent Creek . . .

It's over 2ft wide so not easy to photograph hence the extra 2 pics below :

I stitched this on 28count natural linen with DMC threads rather than GAST and have a few ideas what to do for a finish but will leave that for a later post.

I managed to have an afternoon out with DH on Monday, it was our 24th Wedding Anniversary but after feeling so low recently we are going to have belated celebrations at a later date when I will be able to have a glass or two and actually eat something so instead we went stash hunting and did really well :

Autumnal and Halloween fat quarters and ric a rac
Green felt for pumpkin making, a Halloween sign with paints (meant for kiddies but as I'm the biggest one of them in our family!) and some gingham ribbon

AND
3 cross stitch books, all in perfect condition and never used for the fantastic price of £1 (who could resist?)

The weather is horrible here today and noticeably much colder but the leaves are turning those gorgeous shades of Autumn and I now don't need an excuse to light the fire in the lounge at night!
I'm off to renew my Passport tomorrow and need a new photograph ~ I look like Rudolph with my sore red nose at the moment and the gang are all laughing at me ~ still I'll only have to live with it for another 10 years!!!

HAPPY STITCHING . . .

Awww sorry you haven't been so good. Toothache can be rotten indeed. That is just such a fab RAK off Lesleyanne. Really does scream your name. xx

Annette said...

I'm so sorry you still don't feel very good, hope you feel better soon and can celebrate.
What a beautifull RAK you got, such lovely bunny's.
I so love the fabrics you bought, I have ordered some off my one, but they aren't as beautifull as yours.....
Love your stitching BTW....

Myra said...

Jane, I certainly sympathize with you. A root canal and a cold this close together! (hugs) Nice stash aquisitions there - can't wait to see those Halloween finishes.

Karen said...

Hope your feel better soon...tooth pain is the worse! And now a cold....I think you deserve some sympathy. Glad you got some stitching in...love the BC finish.

Michelle May said...

Oh Jane! I'm soooooo sorry for your mouth pain! Dreadful! What a nice gift though to help you feel better. Tell Tilly to give you some extra kisses. Bunny kisses always make you feel better.

Oh, dental pain is the absolute worst! I'm so sorry. Poor thing!

Your spooky row is fabulous! I don't know how I've never seen that one since I have so many of the Bent Creek Rows. I love it!

Ouch! I do hope you feel better soon, Jane. Try to rest and take good care...

Love your newest stash--especially the fabrics. And your Bent Creek finish is wonderful :)

Sally said...

Oh Jane I'm so sorry to hear you've had more problems with your tooth and a cold on top. Lots of hugs coming your way. Tilly does look like she's missing her cuddles.

Love your Spooky Row and all your new stash is brilliant.

Lesleyanne said...

I hope you are feeling better now. So pleased you liked the chart. Love your finish and your fabric, where did you get it from? Can't wait to see what you make with it. A gorgeous picture of Tilly and your books were definitely a bargain.

Hope you are feeling much better soon. It's no fun having a nasty cold. Love your spooky stitching and the bunny kit RAK your friend sent is just perfect for you. It's turned really cold here too and we have our heating on right now.
Have a lovely weekend.

Feel better soon Jane. No wonder you've been feeling so miserable, dreadful toothache and now the cold. Love your spooky finish and you did some great shopping!

Barb said...

Oh as I have been away for a week I was unaware you have been suffering still -just catching up with things and thought I would pop in for a visit.
Hope things are a lot better now,despite feeling grim,you still managed to make Me smile with the passport pic description. Love the fabbies and your bent creek is fab-u-lous!!
Lesley Anne sent you a very "you" gift how lovely.
Take care sweetie and hugs for Tilly

Pumpkin said...

Oh Jane, I hope you are feeling better by now. I can't imagine having a bad tooth AND being sick at the same time :o( Tilly looks like she understands though ;o)

Congrats on your adorable finish! And all that stash to boot! Love the Halloween fabric and what a deal on those cross stitch books. WOW!
