Starts 1 - 4 and TUSAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  My leg is doing a little better.  However, I spent most of last week coughing and throwing up.  Went to the doctor Friday and he has decided that I have asthma and/or COPD and put me on 2 different inhalers.  You know, I swear I was healthier when I weighed 50 pounds more.  Maybe I should start eating again.

Here is my first sad TUSAL report.  I learned that you don't get a lot of stitching done by spending three weeks in bed.  Those clear ornaments have the last two years worth of orts in them.

Day 1 - Snow Day - 6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate

Day 2 - February - Flip It Stamp - Lizzie Kate

Day 3 - August - Flip It Bit - Lizzie Kate

Day 4 - September - Flip It Block w/charm - Lizzie Kate

I'm really struggling with my stitching.  These should each be a couple hours of stitching and they took me about five hours each.  My arms just feel like jello.  I hope that feeling goes away real soon.

Thanks for looking.    Linda

Happy Stitchy New Year, Linda! I'm glad you're still keeping up with the new starts even though you've been sick. You sure are a determined stitcher! I'm sure you'll get a lot of these finished this year. I like the bright colors!

Okay health issues aren't allowed to happen to us stitching people. We have stitches to make.

Seriously I hope your pain all eases quickly. All your stitching looks great though.

Linda - Hope you feel better real soon. Some hot tea and stitching always help when I am not well.

Glad to read that your leg is getting better. But not so good about the arthma. I hope the medication will do its thing.
Wow, losing 50 pounds, that's really something. Congratulations!

So nice to see that you are doing the Crazy Challenge again. I'm looking forward to seeing your next starts.

Hope you recover quickly. I have two inhalers for my asthma, I think that is standard. I had bronchitis once and coughed so hard I threw up onto a piece I was stitching for my parents' anniversary! Good times. (Hope that got a little smile out of you.)
