A Lot of Nothing

I want to thank everyone for their get better wishes. I am feeling a little better today. I had to go see Dr L yesterday as he wanted to make sure I wasn't getting dehydrated. Good news is I was a little dehydrated but not bad enough that I had to have an IV...whew! I admit I am a wimp when it comes to needles. Bad news is I have lost 7 pounds. That puts me below my weight I was before I was pregnant.

So for the past couple of day I have been pretty much a couch potato trying to take it easy. What does a girl do to keep herself occupied? Stitch, of course:) I have been working on ES and finished the satin stitch row with the lazy daisies (yuck!). I also finished the back stitching on the falcon box or as much as I could since I ran out of 3045. Right now I am working on the Pharaoh box stitching 1/1 on his face. I haven't had much of a problem with the 1/1 because this piece is on 28 count. Unlike TdM which is being stitched 1/1 on 32 count fabric.

And now for this week's SBQ:

For seasoned stitchers: Define a stitching term or acronym for new stitchers.

For newbies: What stitching term or acronym would you like defined?

I have been blogging for awhile so I know most of the abbreviations. Here are a few of my favorites:

*WTF-Waiting To Finish...actually that wasn't my first guess the first time I saw this

*BAP-Big A$$ Piece

*SEX-Stash Enhancing eXperience...again another one that made me stop and go...huh?!

WTF --- is usually my response to something stupid I heard on the evening news.

Haha you're right that WTF means something different to non-stitchers!

Good to hear you feel a bit better, Dawn.
Very good progress on ES!

Sally said...

So sorry to hear you've not been feeling too good Dawn. Hope it passes soon and you're able to eat normal food again.

I'm just catching up on blogs. ES is looking great as is TdM and Summer's Magic:)

If there was ever an up side to not feeling well I suppose more stitching time would be it. Great progress on ES!

Hope you continue to feel better, and if you want your seven pounds back I have them right here!

Dawn, please do stay hydrated, especially as we enter the heat of the summer! Both you and the baby will feel better for it. I'm sure you'll soon be feeling well and eating normally. I always lost weight at the beginning of all my pregnancies from morning sickness - I'm feeling a sympathy wave of it as I type! Uck.

Hope this weekend hold lots of fun and stitching for you. :D
