God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Two Old Friends

Two of my old friends, DayQuil & NyQuil, have come to visit me this week.  They actually arrived last week to visit my husband, then decided to stay on & spend some time with me.  That was nice of them beings that I'm sick & all   : (   John actually came down with a terrible cold last week.  I avoided him as much as possible but his pesky little germs found me anyway.  I keep opening my eyes each morning thinking I'll surely feel better today, but then I get up & the room spins & my nose runs & I hack up a lung.  I'm drinking lots of fluids & trying to stitch but can't count how many times I've had to frog my current project which is something I haven't shared with you yet.  I did finish stitching my Dames of the Needle ornament with the exception of the back stitching.  Even I know better than to try to tackle back stitching when I'm feeling like this. It's almost like this cold is attacking my brain cells.  I actually wrote an email to Marly yesterday asking her if she used the colors suggested by the designer for the Heartstring Samplery Christmas Band Sampler she posted or did she use some other colors.  She was rather confused ... was I talking about the freebie she posted?  I didn't think the band sampler was a freebie design.  It was then that I realized it wasn't even her blog where I saw the sampler posted!!!  Yep, the brain cells are at dangerously low levels indeed! 

Time for me to crawl back to my recliner & sip some tea.  Hopefully I will be a picture of health when I visit with you again.

Hope you feel better soon. Those bottles have been at our house as well. Mike has been sick with the same stuff. Nasty. So far, knock on wood, I've avoided it.

Poor thing! I hope you feel better soon! I think you are talking about Edgar's posts on the Christmas Band Sampler by Heartstring Samplery (the computer is telling me I misspelled that but I don't think so?). On his post on Dec. 18, 2013 he said something about liking the colors used so maybe he didn't change any colors! A more recent post he said something about changing the chart at the end of the "W" and "Z" rows. He is very kind and has answered every question I have ever posted in his comment section. Can't wait to see your new ornament finish and hope you feel better soon!

Oh Shirlee I hate that you have caught this horrible bug. We've battling it since Christmas so I feel your pain. I haven't picked up a needle lately because as you said this bug causes brain cells to turn to mush. The good news is that you are on he road to recovery y now.

Gosh, I am so sorry to hear that you have been sick! At least it hasn't morphed into anything worse than a cold! We have some excitement (not good) out here, and in case I forgot, another helicopter just flew over my house rather close!! It's dark, so I imagine the search will end for now... Not getting much stitching done myself-life gets in the way. Get better soon! Hugs!

Your visitors' identical cousins have taken up residence on my kitchen counter, too! Now when I'm moaning I'll hope we both feel better soon. Take care, my friend.
