Too sick to stitch.. sort of

Unfortunately, I am burdened right now with blocked sinuses and a headache that is such a monster - like a snowstorm inside of my head. I just cannot get warm and am a bit nauseous. I cannot take sinus medication, as it will keep me up all night. So, a little ibuprofen and watching the Harry Potter and Bourne Ultimatum are on tap for tonight. If I feel better, I might stitch... I did work for a bit on gift, so the day is not a total stitching washout :-)

I can show this, though. Bianca has received my Crazy Exchange for her. One of the first ornaments I ever finished off - lacking a bit of creativity, but still, I think, rather nice. I have been told Bianca is pleased, so that is what matters :-)

Peace on Earth Ornament

Sending positive healing thoughts to you. I've been struggling with a cough since Thanksgiving, so I know how you feel in not having the energy to stitch.

The ornament turned out very cute. The Rabbit exchange items, both given and recieved, were also lovely. So sorry to hear you are ill, hopefully you're felling better soon.

Oh Carol, I am so sorry to hear that you are sick. Take care of yourself and you'll be stitching again soon!!!

Love the ornament and the Rabbit Exchange goodies!

Dianne said...

Sorry you aren't feeling well. Do you have a vaporizer? For a quicker fix I use a homeopathic nasal spray from BioAllers (I get it from evitamins.com) they have several kinds. I also start using Vicks vapor rub at night-I know, I'm like a walking home remedy.
The ornie you made is sweet. Love the JBW designs too. (I met the designer at a show on time)

Lynn said...

I really like the ornament. I have never seen this design and it's lovely. It rather looks like the scene outside my window right now. We getting another dump of snow.
Sorry to hear that you feel so miserable. I hope those sinuses clear soon. Maybe a little Vicks will help.

You poor thing - sorry to hear you are under the weather. Sinus issues are so annoying - hang in there.

Tanya said...

Forgot to say - I took Chlor-trimeton recently for three days and it cleared up a REALLY bad stuffy nose. I take Enalapril for blood pressure so can't take the 'good' stuff for sinus issues BUT this really worked. You might want to try it!

Carol hope you feel better soon! Your ornament is lovley... you don't always have to be super creative!

Heather said...

As you know Carol, I get sinusitis quite a lot and as an ex flight attendant, I don't always bother to go the doctor (although in my case I do sometimes needs the antibiotics). I use a herbal liquid called Karvol and add that to a bowl of steaming hot water, with a towel over my head to keep the steam and vapours in and do that for around 5-10 minutes (breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth). That unblocks the sinuses and eases the pain, it also helps when you have pain in your ears because all of that is connected.

Hope you feel better soon.

Love the ornament.

Sharon said...
