Only 3 sleeps left...

...well to be more specific, it's just 61 hours till we leave! Am I counting? Oh yes. ;-)

Today was a repeat of last night with my migraine powering along, holding me back from reading this...

crocheting this...

stitching this...

and playing this!

So I took THESE...

...and after a few hours I was able to go and buy the little blue Swarovski crystal I needed to finish this block. It was the smallest crystal I could buy in town but it was too big for Tweet Tweet's eye, so I added it to the heart. Something tells me this is going to end up as a bag. ;-)


It was a slow day today but I'm beginning to feel a bit better so perhaps after dinner I'll get to that stitching and maybe crochet a few rows. I might even manage to read another chapter of my book...or I might just get an early night and cross off another 8 hours of waiting. The Scrabble can wait till tomorrow.

Wherever you are I thank God for you.
You have all helped me get through these weeks, and I want you to know that really blesses me.

Take it easy and enjoy these quiet nights at home before you leave, I am sure being well rested will be of benefit on the long journey ahead.

P.S: I love the new Shabby Roses block.Keep the beautiful ideas flowing,I so enjoy working on your stitcheries.

Glad you are starting to feel a little better. Moving has been a big strain and it is no wonder that you have a Migraine. I love the fabric you chose and it would look beautiful as a bag. Colleen

Migraines are jsut the pits. So take it really easy - wear dark sunglasses! A dash of peppermint oil and a dash of lavender oil (good quality) can help. God bkess you too

Hope your head is better now. So don't do too much and don't worry about the young ones. You'll soon be with them again.

Allie said...

I'd be tempted to take a couple of sleeping pills and sleep for, oh, about 61 hours.
That birdy stitchery would look great as a bag.
I'm glad you're feeling a bit better and praying that nasty old migraine to fly away forever.

Loralynn said...

Hi Jenny,
Do you have a local acupuncturist?
That may clear up the underlying problem and get rid of those nasty migraines.
Relax and chill.
Big hugs coming your way,
Anna

Hi Jenny--I feel a connection to you in two ways: 1> my grandmother's name was Jenny and I have always loved that name ( and her) 1> you always have several projects going at once and so do I--sometimes I sit there and wonder which one to pick up--then I just say--Diane just pick one up and work on it!!!! they all need to get done-period!! Take time to enjoy your next few hours there, it may be a long time before you can come back for a visit--Hugs, just, Di

Narelle said...

It's good to know that you feel a little better. I get the odd migraine, not fun at all.
Your wait is nearly over, I'm sure it felt much longer for you than it did for us. Have a safe journey.

I'm sorry to hear that you are not feeling well, I hope you are doing better now. I love to read about your moving. i wish all the luck in your new home.

If you know what Gatorade is and have access to it, I was reading an article that said when you get migranes drink some Gatorade. It puts something back in your system that supposedly is low. If you do this and have success be sure to pass it on. God Bless you on your journey.
