I was so sick yesterday.
Blossom recovered over the course of the morning, but I did not, so with groaning and moaning I slept, read, drank copious amounts of gingered water, and by evening felt able to sit upright and do some stitching.
Blossom is all better today, so to cheer me while she is at work she bought me tulips...
When she was younger and we were homeschooling, we studied Holland for a month and this sparked her love of tulips. They really have brightened my day, but mostly because she drew on a happy childhood memory and wanted to share it with me. Love you, Blossom. xx
Over the course of the day I immersed myself in a favourite book - one that always feels like a comfort blanket wrapping itself around me and transporting me back to slower times....
(I'm doing a review of all Jane Brocket's books in my ezine next month, 'cause I have every one and treasure them)
Some final stitches went into a country style design for Handmade magazine's Country Christmas issue later this year...
...and I finished all the swirly bits in a new design for August's Elefantz HOME e-zine.
Today Mr E returns from working away, so I have the fridge stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables to do some serious juicing as we're both feeling sluggish at the moment.
With the current state of my tummy this is probably the best remedy of all.
Have a lovely, healthy, happy and serene day, dear friends.
I will leave you with the remaining two words in my inspirational stitchery...
Dream your dreams, and create the paths to bring them to life.
Dreams don't appear real until you act upon them. Believe in yourself, and if the dream is life-giving and not harmful, walk forward into it.
"And the Lord God looked over all He had created and saw that it was good."
