Update and a Quick Giveaway!!

I don't even know where to begin! Despite the fact that I am still in pain from the liver thing, and now from whatever came up in early October, I have managed to stitch a little, do some finishing and the BIGGEST thing was spend some time with my younger sister!! She flew here to Virginia, and then we went down to Myrtle Beach for the PALS Retreat! I have 'stuff' all over my office that I need to take pictures of, and put away or on display. Phew!

AND while I was away, I reached 200+ followers! I think that calls for at least a small Giveaway! So, the winner of the Giveaway must be a current follower AND actually have a stitching blog, and they must answer a riddle correctly--see below. The prize is the chart 'Olga' by Paulette of Plum Street Samplers--whom I met at the retreat, by the way. We chatted for a few minutes, and she was busy stitching on a new A-dorable chart that I must have!! You will see in a couple of weeks when she releases it. So without further ado, here is the riddle: "When does a star have no meaning?"

I will try to get back to this tomorrow night. Don't think I have anything planned except be anti-social and get caught up here!

Until then, Hugs, Maggee

Feeling poorly... and iSAD

I have been in a lot (more) pain since the weekend, and found out I have a kidney infection. My back really really hurts most of the time, despite the fact that I have been on one antibiotic since Tuesday. So, today, I called and when the nurse asked how I was feeling and I told her 'like crap!' she said 'no wonder! the meds you are taking cannot fight the bacterial infection you have." So, I go from taking 250mg of Cipro 2X a day for seven days to 875mg of Amoxicillin 2X a day for ten days! Big guns, eh?! So, all this to say my mojo is seriously dragging. I have lots to do, and I feel lousy! I need a fairy stitchmother!!

Perhaps the pain will diminish for the weekend, when I play catch-up! All that medicine--it should!!

I pulled a bunch of charts out for a Giveaway--stay tuned!

I am so sad about Steve Jobs... He was a great visionary, and will be sorely missed. I LOVE my iPhone!! I say that all the time! Especially when I discover something new I can do with it (no, I have not read the manuals yet!!) Thus, "iSAD" about his passing...
