Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

🍀Happy St. Patrick's Day !🍀

Hi friends!
How are you? Better than me I hope! I have been coughing for almost exactly a month now. I went to a doctor last week. He said my lungs sound clear and to take an allergy pill, use over the counter nasal spray and use cough syrup. Nope. I went to my doctor on Wednesday and I have bronchitis and a sinus infection. She gave me antibiotics and told me to use the nasal spray, and I should be all fixed up.

Here is a progress picture on Forever Be My Always by Emma Congdon.
 That is about it for me for me friends. You are all so sweet with your kind comments. Thank you.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

So sorry to read you are still unwell, Vickie--it does seem like you have had way more than your share of health issues lately. Hope the antibiotics do the trick.

Rest, stitch, and repeat all weekend--hope the first day of Spring on Monday finds you feeling much better!

Good Morning Vickie,

Your stitching is just lovely! You have made wonderful progress! I am so inspired! I know I have said it before but you have a real gift for needlework my friend!

I love the picture of your sweet puppy looking at the snow outside! I can almost hear the little puppy thoughts..." hmmm my Mama said this white stuff will be melting soon...I'll just keep waiting....". :)

I also love the little house that is holding some lovely stitching. What a wonderful idea!

Praying you will feel better VERY soon! Sending hugs and love!

Hoping you will now get better Vickie.My husband should have had antibiotics three weeks before he did,it may have lessened his subsequent health complications. It is very frustrating when this happens.

Sounds like a similar virus that's been doing the rounds over here in the UK.
My mum's nursing home was all decorated for St Patrick's day and they had themed food alongside a tea dance with themed music.

I really like your "Forever" piece. It's such a lovely sentiment. I'm sorry you have been feeling a little under the weather. Hopefully, you'll feeling back to normal quickly. I found you through Stitching Blogs We All Luv to Read. I hope you don't mind if I follow along.

Brigitte said...

Oh my, a bronchitis never sounds good. But with the antibiotics you should soon feel better and be on the mend. I hope so for you.
Forever looks wonderful, Vickie. Emma Congdon is a great designer.
