Christmas Angel & sick

I started out not feeling well this week. A little bit of acid reflux. Then woke up wednesday morning with it really bad and sinus pressures so bad that my eyes hurt. Scott came home with pepcid ac, crackers and ginger ale. I already had ibuprofin and sudafed. Slept in til 10:30 and my sinus pressure wasn't as bad but this acid reflux is horrible. Just took my meds when I was supposed to.
Sat on the couch and stitched most of the day while watching TV.
The 25th of each month I pull out something Christmasy and this year I decided to stitch on it the whole week of the 25th. Christmas Angel by Joan Elliott had been a UFO and I pulled it out last year to work on it. The last time I shared a picture was either Oct or Nov. This is what I got done so far. The stitching itself is almost done and I do backstitching as I go along. But I have a lot of beads to ad to the dress and then there is a lot of holly and beads in the background.


I am home sick again today. Have a slight headache so time for some more ibuprofen and letting the headache go away before stitching again. I am hoping to have this finished this week.

Yesterday I watched:
Live With Kelly
General Hospital
Butterfield 8 - Liz Taylor movie I had DVRd
Eat Pray Love - another on the DVR
I started to watch Prince of Persia The Sands Of Time but I couldn't get into it.

Well going to lay down for a bit and then stitch some more if I can. Will post progress pics tonight and hopefully watch a few more movies.

Make sure you have pillows to prop yourself up in bed with the reflux. It helps.
Fell better soon! I hope atleast you can get lots of stitching done!

I hope you feel better soon. If the nausea gets to be bad, I recommend candied ginger. That and regular Coca Cola are the only things I can ever get to calm my stomach down.

Sending gentle hugs! :)

I hope you feel better soon. Sinus stuff is never fun, and then to have acid reflux on top of it, yikes.

Your Christmas Angel is very pretty. Have fun with the beading. :o)

Nice work on the angel! I hope you're feeling better now.

My daughter is freaking at the talk that GH might be cancelled--I hope it won't be!

Your Christmas Angel looks GREAT!! I know how much work it is to backstitch, but it always adds so much definition. Can't wait to see more as you go along.

Hope you feel better soon!
