Well... I had another doctor visit. I still have pneumonia. I have been back in the bed since last Friday. Doc gave me a powerful antibiotic, steroids, and an inhaler. So.. I'm high on steroids.
I have been doing a lot of stitching. I have been stitching on Barbara Ana Snooty Parrot. Trying to get this month's stitching  finished before March 1st. I have also been stitching on some Spring and Easter projects by With The Needle & Thread designs.

 I hope to put these 2 together so that I will have a cute Scissor keeper and bird pin cushion.

 With Thy Needle & Thread - Berries and Blooms leaflet.

 I've had great mail while I have been resting. I received a Gift Certificate from a friend for Christmas. It was to Victorian Motto - Nancy. I had never tried her threads. I emailed Nancy and asked her to pick out some Spring and Summer colors. She was so nice and sent me these great colors. I buy all my trims from Nancy, now I will need to start getting all my floss. Just the colors I would have picked! I can't wait to start stitching with them.

These came in the mail today from Brenda. I love to needle punch! I checked out my stash for the gingham linen for the Spring Messenger. I have it! Yay!! A great time to use my new threads and start another project.
Well, time to fix some more Campbell's Chicken and Noodle!  lol
Take care everyone and thanks for hanging with me during this sickness.. I will get better!!

Such cute Spring and Easter projects. The floss is beautiful. I'm so sorry to hear you have been sick again. I hope the new medication really gets rid of the pneumonia! I know how miserable it is!

I'm so sorry to hear you still have pneumonia: hope it gets sorted out soon. I love Nancy's threads...I think you will too xx

Sorry to hear you are still dealing with pneumonia. Chicken Noodle soup is a good idea. Try to get some rest. At least, stitching is a hobby that doesn't require too much physical activity.

Goodness, you sure have had a time of it lately! I hope this is the charm though, and you can be healthy for the coming spring and summer :-)

Love the threads and new designs...and your stitching is just as lovely as ever.

Nice stitching progress! I like to combine a can of Chicken Noodle and a can of Cream of Chicken. Yummy! Makes you better sooner! LoL
