Flu medicine

The best medicine to heal from flu is staying in bed, drink a lot of water and of course new projects.

Like the new free BOM "A christmas wish" from Gail Pan. I was lucky to have exactly the same fabric as she had and this was a nice little project to stitch in bed. I always use a very thin batting behind my stitchery and recomend all of you to do the same.
And next portion of medicine was this cute free BOM from Bunny Hill design. I really love this cute snowman in the basket and can't wait to see who/what she puts in the basket next month. I have put some other buttons at it, but I know I have those heartbuttons some place in my sewingroom.
Feeling a little better now, but the cough is horrible and keeps me awake all night.
Saying for today:

Getting an idea should be like sitting down on a pin;
it should make you jump up and do something.

I hope you are feeling better soon. That cough is nasty - don't leave it unattended to long. I'm nearly finished my snowman block, it's a wonderfol BOM. Your Christmas stichery is pretty too.

Take care of yourself...Ann :)

Joy said...

May Britt this is an old wives tale ... but I'm told by a very dear friend that it WORKS!!!
To stop coughing you should rub Vicks Vaporub onto the soles of your feet before you go to bed ..... I hasten to add that a pair of socks over the top would be a very good idea, but I'm guessing in your climate you'd probably be wearing some anyway ;o)!!!
Give it a try, you've got nothing to lose (except the cough LOL) ;o). Hope it works for you ... and hope you're feeling better soon!!!
Hugs,
Joy :O)

Try dark chocolate for your cough, there is a chemical in it which acts as a cough suppresant. Just a few squares an hour. Hope this helps, cheerie

Joyce said...

Guðrún said...

Is it still cold at your place?

Angie said...

May Britt, your blocks are so nice. I do a lot of redwork and you mentioned a thin batting behind the fabric you are stitching on. Can you tell me the purpose of this? I'm Curious. Yours stitchery is beautiful.
I hope you feel better soon. Coughing during the night is terrible. Hot tea helps. Hot soup. Get better soon!

It's no fun to be sick - hope your feeling better and you sure didn't let that slow you down - love your projects. I'm starting my bunny block this weekend

Karen said...

Doesn't the thread and needle catch on the batting as you stitch?

StarQuilt said...

Hei. Har du prøvd rødvin? Blokkene ble nydelige. Tror faktisk at jeg har det samme stoffet. Men du er fortsatt litt for kjapp, he he. Håper du er i form igjen til helga. Da skal vi sy da. God bedring og klem. Kjerstin

Flutterby Angel said...

great to hear you are on the mend May Britt....that cough is awful though....seems to hang on for weeks.
Now I have to say that I love your 'medicine' and it seems to be working very well!
Now....where's my pin cushion?.....

Kris Meares - Tag Along Teddies said...

Hey May Britt! Just letting you know my email is off the air AGAIN! SIGH!! Very tired of being mucked around and GB is already in the process of changing server companies. Will have to wait til I'm properly back on the air before I can do much. Off to sulk and stitch! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Fiona @ Dragonfly-Crafts said...

Wishing you a speedy recovery May Britt, love the new projects you're doing....

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Glad to hear you are feeling a little better May Britt...love both of your projects...take care.

Noémia said...

I don't belive, even with a flu you have so much work done! :)
I've also take the same patterns that you have done, to do one of this days.

Teresa said...

So sorry that you are still feeling bad but at least you are getting some pretty things made.

Ms. Jan said...

Get Better Soon!!

Drink fluids, rest, stitch. You'll be on the mend before you know it!

Sandi said...

Oh I do hope you are feeling better soon (and your cough goes away). Your blocks are lovely. I like the quote for today :)

Christine said...

Your blocks look terrific. Sorry to hear you're still unwell. Hope your cough goes soon ... it sounds a nasty one.
Christine

Tonje said...

Very cute blocks. Hope you feel better soon.

Kjersti M said...

Ønsker deg god bedring, selv om det faktisk ser ut som du har det ganske bra i sengen ;o)
Har tittet i bloggen din lenge men aldri lagt igjen spor :-( Mye fint og mange flotte ting du drar igang for andre quiltere. Tror jeg må hive meg på den Ufo-tingen, for de er det noen av.

hetty said...

Sorry to hear about your cough. Hope you feel better soon. Your blocks look fantastic. I love your little snowman! Now I feel inspired to make one too!

Connie W said...

Hi, May, I followed a link from Chookyblue's blog comments to you here so I could ask a question about Bloglines. You commented that you can add them to favorites and this is a feature I didn't know about. Would it be difficult to explain a bit about that?

I am also making these two projects and both are in progress but neither finished yet.

Thanks,
Connie W

I am glad you are feeling a little bit better. I too am doing that cute basket of the month, and I love the colors you have chosen. Can't wait for the next one.
