My Mailman is My New Best Friend!

I know last month he was Santa and now he's my best friend. I should tip the man at least for all of his deliveries! Did you know you aren't allowed to tip government employees beyond a certain amount. I think - think - it is $20. Correct me if I'm wrong!

Anyway, Santa didn't bring me any stitching things at all this Christmas. Nothing! Now, don't go feeling all bad about it. I didn't ask for any either. He did well and I am completely happy.

But, I got an itch ~~ would you like to see what I got?

                             



I must still be on my crow kick. Got 3 crows, a chickadee and cardinal, and 2 other unidentified birds! Maybe I should say feathered friends kick! What's up with all the birds?

About the doctor -- Grr, she's only in a half day today and was booked. Her nurse was to call me - so far nothing. I'm not bad enough to go to the ER or a stat care. So, here I sit taking more OTC drugs. I slept last night like I haven't in FOREVER! From 8:30 until 1 am and then from 4 am until 9:45! That's an insane number of hours to sleep! But, I am feeling more human. So there is hope! ;0)

~~~ Edited to add -- went to the Stat Care - I have acute bronchitis! Two shots, 1 breathing treatment, an inhaler and pills. Considering I'm not sick (denial) they sure acted like I was! ~~~

I've been told stitching makes you feel better - so, off to the chair to see if it is true!

I hope you feel better and can get a hold of your doctor. I love your new patterns and I am really falling in love with the black crows. I can see one in my future very soon.

Stitching is better than Chicken Soup as a cure for ANYTHING ! ! ! !

It is right up there with penicillin.

Sounds like a good home remedy to me! Hopefully the sleep will help - I've always been a firm believer in that, anyway.

Great new patterns, and I look forward to seeing your work on them. Are any headed to your crazy challenge?
