Not Happy

Filed under: Rants — xstitcherzo @ 2:46 pm
I’m not an happy person. I am still sick. I was on my way to recovery last week…when someone sneeze near me…and I caught the grandmother of flu virus yet again. No stitching, no sewing. I’ve been busy with work and more work.
Howeverr I did went for training that was so graciously sponsored by my company. Ahhhh…I feel my existence.
Anyway…going back to work now…just stopped over to say that I am still sick. I need a long holiday in a germs free environment.

Micro something Infection

Filed under: Rants — xstitcherzo @ 8:49 am
Went to the doctor again yesterday. This week is the 5th week I am sick. The doctor told me I might have an infection. She don’t have to tell me that….I even thought that I am getting the chicken and bird flu or any kind of contagious or exotic kind of flu since I have not recovered since week 2.
Anyway, She gave new medicines and antibiotics. If this does not clear up…I am going for more tests and chest xray.
So after dousing myself with medicines (yesterday) I am feeling much better now. The cat in my throat is no longer stretching my throat. Can’t talked much though but certainly feels better.
I am still stitching my Home of Needleworker from NNC SHS. I have shamelessly asked for the chart from Jean. The SHS (Sisterhood of Stitching) is supposed to be for 3 weeks….but I can’t make it in 3 weeks. Thank you Jean!!
I am changing the colours for the house and windows to a slightly cheerful ones after all I am going to hang in my room. Thought I look at some nicer colours. No OD as I want to wash this piece before I hang, as it contains all my bacteria from handling it over the last weeks. That’s about all folks. I am still busy at work.

SBQ – 13th Feb 2008

Filed under: SBQ — xstitcherzo @ 1:03 pm

This week’s SBQ was suggested by Loretta : Do you have any projects that you have scrapped and started over? What made you start over from scratch?

Oh this is so simple….I have not scrapped any of my projects so far….I would normally re-invent them….lol.

But one project that I have yet to scrap was the one given by a female colleague of mine. She had bought a Forever Friends Wedding kit. Most of the colours are in ecru tones except for the cheeks and flowers. She had used knots at the back!!!…So I have ripped 70% of them. So whenever I am ‘that’  free…I would start stitching it. But looks like it is not going to happen as her attitude had make me so angry just by looking at the fabric. Oh it’s not her using the knots on it but more on work-wise.

Anyway, I am going to find that kit again. Once I found it….It is free + free postage to any good home.

SBQ – 25th Feb 2008

Filed under: SBQ — xstitcherzo @ 12:46 pm

This week’s SBQ was suggested by Rachel and is: What is your cross stitch weakness? (i.e., What do you have to have when you see it, even if you are supposed to be on the Wagon?)

What cross stitch weakness can I possibly get that all stitcher’s wouldn’t get as well. I must have ALL the lovely things that I see/surf/ardmire on practically all the stitching bloggers site.  Cross stitching is like an healthy obsession is you can keep it in line…or else you just drives yourself crazy with all the wants that you see.

As I progresses without much stitching nowadays…I only collects charts and books. Now I have limit myself to only UK Cross Stitcher magazine or any magazines that came with Flower Fairies and Margaret Sherry designs. (my on-going weakness)

On a different note : I’ve decided to interact with my online world…to keep my tippy toes sane as all the work…is making me sick. This is my 4th week of still being sick. And It’s best I clear my email box of all the unanswered SBQs too.
