Linda's round robin

Here's the section I stitched on Linda's Drawn Thread piece for our Band Sampler round robin. I took sections from Summer Arbor. Fun!

I also finished the stitching on Rose and Butterfly Quilt. I'm working on the beading, but I ran out of Nymo. The beading is rather annoying to me, but I can't wait to have the piece finished so I can move on to something else. I enjoyed working on it, but enough already.

The health thing: So I got an ear infection and couldn't hear for more than two weeks. I also had to go to the ER because of severe abdominal pain (think almost passing out) and bleeding. They didn't find anything seriously wrong with me, so I guess I'm OK. No food poisoning or infections. Oh, and it was fun trying to explain to everyone that in addition to being sick, I couldn't hear what they were telling me very well. That's what you want when you have needles stuck in you and have to do things for the tests. Huh, what?!

On the weight front, the doc has put me on Wellbutrin in an attempt to treat the carb addiction. It works for smokers, so why not? I'm not eating a lot, but I'm eating junk and can't seem to stop. It's worked pretty well for the month I've been on it. If nothing else, it's giving me enough energy to work on the house. Working your butt off makes you lose weight too!

The part you did on Linda's RR is beautiful!!! Good luck with the weight loss!! You can do it! I'm struggleing right there with you!!

I understand your weight issues. My problem is I eat too much fat. I'm not gaining, but I'm not losing either. It's such a pain!! I can't really exercise either. I have torn menisci in both knees, and asthma. So I'm basically screwed, lol. I'm glad it's giving you energy to do stuff, though. It must be very welcome to you!! Sorry about the ear infection too. I haven't had one in years!!! Very pretty on the RR you worked on, and can't wait to see your quilt finished. I've not beaded much, but for most stitchers, it seems to go slower than the cross stitching. I hope you get it done soon!!

Hope the wellbutrin works for you. Can't wait to see Rose and butterfly quilt finished. It is on my wish list.

Yikes to the ER trip. Hope that pain doesn't return.

The RR looks beautiful! I can't wait to see your Rose & Butterfly quilt - I'm sure it's stunning with all the beads and crystals attached.
