Hello Cuties, last week, Thursday to be exact, my daughter asked me if I would monogram some headbands, for her daughter's basketball team. She needed them for the 9th. She wanted to know before she ordered them and she needed 11 monogrammed!

I told her Avery had her parade on the 7th and so that would only give me the 8th to monogram.
I also told her to get me the initials NOW (last Thursday) so I could work on the letters. Well, the headbands came in Monday and bad as I felt, I did them.
She just picked them up and was very pleased. I hope Lanie and her team mates are, as well. Lanie's is on the bottom.
I had fever 101 again today and have an appointment at the doctor tomorrow morning. I hope to get well and stay well this time. Thanks for looking.

Great job when not feeling good!

I am having that kind of a problem too.
Haven't done any sewing or embroidery in 3 months!
Finally able to do a little this week!

Sorry to hear you've been sick so long. The has been a hard crazy winter. I hope we all get well and stay well.
Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Gosh, I thought that you were on the road to recovery and am unhappy that you are still not well. Good thing to go to the doctor as you have not been well for quite a while now.

Nice looking headbands! I'm sure the girls will appreciate them. When you feel better, I hope you can give us some advice on how you were able to stitch on this stretchy fabric.

This was my second doctor trip. Am feeling better, but still don't see signs of getting rid of this. I was hoping things would loosen up as evidence.I don't have the head pressure I had, so head pains are gone and also my breathing is lots better. Thanks, don't be sad. I'll be fine again soon, bless you.

The girls are playing their FINAL home game tonight. We got a group text, from mom, inviting the family to 'Lanie's last game ever, as a Lady Panther!'
My dh is going but I doubt I get out.

My other daughter cried that my dh went, because he was the only family attended Avery's Mardi Gras party. It was during the day though, a time when everyone is working, and she said she understood. However, Avery's biological dad didn't even go.

It was a very good thing that your dh went. Even having just one family member there can be important to how she feels.

Oh Toogie. So sorry to hear that you are still not doing well. The illness this year seem to be quite debilitating. Please take care of yourself. The headbands look great by the way.

Thanks, and you are right, this winter sure has been hard on me anyway. I told the doctor today my current scent I am wearing is called Vicks vapor rub!

Hello Yvonne, I hope bad health hasn't kept you away. Good to 'see' you.
Thank you for looking at Lanie's headbands. She is leaving as this year she is a Senior and would like to give all her team mates a 'going away' gift. She will be starting college in the fall, unless she joins one of our armed forces which she would like to do.

Very nice. Lots of work when feeling good and on a time schedule, but when you are feeling ill, all the more challenge. Hope you are feeling better sooner than later. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, I have and will. Fever makes me sleep, whether I want to or not.

by graceandham 07 Feb 2018

Rest, rest, rest and listen to the doctor. There have been some really vicious things being passed around this winter.

Just got back from dr. Re-tested for Influenza A and B-negative again. Still treating me for bronchitis. MAYBE soon I will be on the mend.

by rescuer Moderator 06 Feb 2018

Well done! They really are beautiful!
Now, we both know you really NEED rest. All the stress and illness can mess with your overall health. Please take care of you. See the doctor and make sure they know about all of it.

He does, as he is my primary physician. Still treating for bronchitis, as flu test is still showing negative. The sad thing is I missed Avery's big day. My DH is there now.

by dragonflyer 06 Feb 2018

Great job...but you need to start taking care of yourself...hopefully your daughter will recognize that you need some "care" time...

She didn't know I was still sick when I did them, but I was feeling better when she asked last week.
I know I don't get enough rest and that is probably another reason my resistance is low. This cough medicine he gave me makes me sleep though, that and the fever, so I should be well rested when this is finally over. I have chronic bronchitis, since I had double pneumonia, a few years ago
Thanks for looking!.

by pennifold 06 Feb 2018

You poor thing, you need to look after yourself Toogie and please take care. Love Chris

P.S. By the way you did an awesome job!

Angie, I committed to these, before I started running fever Saturday. My daughter didn't know I was sick again, until her younger son ran in to drop them off, on their way to Lanie's game Monday evening.
At that time, I had only worked on 4 of the initials, so I had to finish seven more before I could start stitching. I pushed myself to finish them that night but felt like _____.Thanks for looking.
