Belated FNSI

So I am a week late for Friday Night Sew In.  I apologize.  Did NOT have time for being sick and for the life of me don't even know what it was.  Flu?  Who knows.  All I know is that Thursday I was trying to cram two hours of need to be done stuff in to 20 minutes and suddenly I had to throw up.

I could go in to some great detail about that if you'd like?  I felt nauseous all day, hot, sweaty, dizzy, seriously know the drill.  Then I get home, unload my saddle bag and am trying to change my clothes in a hurry when SUDDENLY it occurred to me that there needs to be some haste made to the WC before things get ugly.  

THAT put an all stop to everything I had planned for the evening.  I tried to watch Critical Role with Nancy, but was so incredibly tired and dizzy it was just time to give in and call it.  I threw in the towel and let nature take it's course.....directly to a much needed coma for about 8 hours.  

Friday I felt about the same, but showered and prepared for work and laughed at myself.  Here is the conversation:

Self:  Hey now, what are you all doing there? (Technically it's ya'll, but I don't like typing that as it kind of feels too twangy even though that is how it is said by me and my family)
Me:  Trying to get ready for work. (Technically it's TRYIN' TUH GIT REDDY FER WERK)(Also, once fully awake the accent does lose it's strength so I'm "normal" again after an hour or so)
Self:  Riiiiiiiiiight, well let me make sure you understand that you are still very tired and could release that glass of water you just drank any moment now.  Give that some thought while you look for that other sock.
Me:  Dang it!  Can't I just put the sock on and make some tea and wander around to see how I feel before making that call?
Self: I suppose so.  I'll give you until 7:00 a.m.
Me: That's just fine by me.

7:00 a.m. rolls around and I cannot locate my phone, my head is on fire and I'm dizzy and feel that water (and now tea) trying to escape.

7:05 a.m. found the phone, made the call in to work and am now safely back in bed.

7:05 a.m. the sweet, sweet sleep takes me away.

10:35 a.m. I rise from my awkward slumber and make some tea and try stitching and chatting with the girls online.  I feel better, but am paying more attention to my "self".  I have a 2:00 p.m. appointment and a 4:00 p.m. appointment and neither can be missed no matter what.  I could have missed both and just gone back to bed, but then my tags would be expired and my mortgage application wouldn't be getting done.

I REALLY want to tell you about the DMV experience, but I'll save that for another time...I have this really great one about re-newing my license...sooooooooooo hilarious!

So, what did I do for FNSI?  Yes, I finally finished the last two ornaments from Magical's Ornament of the Month that she did last year.  Instead of making tiny ornaments out of these last two, I made a biscornu.  

If you like this, really have to get on over to Nancy's Blog Vanya Sulie and look at what SHE did with the patterns! 

You will love them so very much.  

I did finish this AFTER the two appointments, but seriously...why are public spaces so very hot and full of people and have no air when you are feeling cruddy?  

I love my mortgage guy, but his office is like a microwave on HI set for two hours to make sure you are roasted completely.  

Anywho, there it is!  I've been reading blogs and screaming with glee on the pretty things so I know you all are up to good things.

Until Next Time.....Keep On Stitchin'!


  1. OOOOh poor thing. Even when you're sick you can make me smile, and that's from someone who lives with chronic fatigue syndrome.

    1. Oh my goodness! THAT is not a good thing to have. I'm thrilled I can make you smile . <3

  2. I'm sorry you're feeling bad but your post was very entertaining! I loved your conversation with yourself lol. Your pieces are lovely get better soon!

    1. Thank you! I'm fine now and stitching more than ever ha ha! I do talk to myself all the time...wait, I shouldn't be admitting to that should I?

  3. I couldn't have done it, hot and muggy make me a bit nauseous even if I'm not sick, I would have been doomed. Glad you're feeling better now and we got to do CR this week so all was well.

    1. I still have to watch the previous CR and One Shot. It wasn't very easy sitting in two different places that had no air and were hot, but things had to be done.

  4. Sorry to hear that you've been so poorly. The biscornu is gorgeous, love the effect on black and I loved Nancy's collection too.

  5. I hope that you are well over your flu now - it is no fun at all. Lovely stitching on the biscornu - such a dramatic colourway.

  6. Oh no, I didn't even realize you've been that sick :( Hope you're feeelingm uch better now, that biscornu is lovely!
