The Blight Has Struck

Everyone here in the Bungalow has been sick in the last two weeks. It is the dreaded flu...and a very potent version of it as well. My daughter is the last to succumb, and she has had it the worst of all. After just three days, she has a "really nasty nasal infection" according to her physician. I so look forward to it being gone, gone, gone.

Let us get on now to more pleasant topics. I finished the February portion of the Lizzie Kate Christmas Double Flip-Its. I changed the pink color in the stocking to a gold one so that the finished picture will better match my Christmas decor. This continues to be an easy, enjoyable stitch, which is a good thing because I stitched it while still feeling quite under the weather.

I also started work on the next pattern in my LHN Dear Diary Sampler. This is the section for Emmaline Whitcomb in Santa Clara. I can't wait to stitch the house.



Well, everyone keep well. I would rather have a visit from the dreaded frog than this horrid little bug. If everyone keeps healthy, I should be back to the HAED SAL next Friday. I will also be getting back to checking up on everybody's blogs.

Oh Laura! Sorry to hear that your family caught that nasty bug/flu/cold!! I had it for 2 weeks and I'm still getting over it. The changing weather we're having doesn't help matters at all either. I'm so glad that you're able to stitch eventho you're not in tip-top shape. Great progress on your LK piece!

I do hope you all get over that bug soon.
Love the scissors

Oh no! I hope everybody there gets to feeling better really soon! For all that you must have been stitching under miserable conditions, both those projects look wonderful.

Hello? Why did it take me so long to find your blog??? Well, thanks for leaving me a comment and introducing me to yours :o)
I hope the snot has flown, so to speak, at your end?
I see you're doing the LK Christmas bell pull sampler I like to call Holy Stocking. I swear that's what I thought it was called at first.

Your flip it's are so sweet. Aren't they fun to stitch?
I'm hoping by now all of you are feeling better. Take care.
