I'm okay! Really I am! :)

Hello!  :)

I feel like I've been neglecting my blog. Which I actually have. I'm so sorry. I keep thinking about posting and then of course I don't. It's not that I don't have anything to share it's just that I haven't felt up to it. I've been feeling worn out and exhausted since February. I seem to have no energy at all. It really sucks! The doctors are running tests and adjusting my medications but so far nothing is working. I sleep a lot and do a lot of cross stitching. Sewing just hasn't been appealing to me at all. It just takes too much energy. I really have a lot of stuff piling up that I need and want to work on. The fact that it's piling up is stressing me out. I'm my worst enemy.  :)

I did manage to take a couple of pictures of what I've been working on last week to share with you. I'm still working on the Lizzie Kate Monthly Stamp Flip-It's. Here's July . . .


And a closer view. This series all come with 3 tiny buttons. The July buttons were supposed to be bugs. I hate bugs so I made mine into watermelon seeds. I like it better this way.  :)


Here's August . . .


And a close up . . .


These will eventually be made into little pillows. Who knows when I'll feel like doing that though.  :(


These are the first three I completed. As of today I've completed five more! I'll take pictures of them soon to share. Last Friday I actually had a fun day out with a blogging buddy. I'll share more about that later.

Until next time . . .

You poor dear. I know the frustration of what you are going through. I had something similar happen to me a few years back.

Hope you get to feeling better soon! Aren't these LK's adorable? I've got my set done and am using a pop-in frame. Have fun!

Hope you'll be feeling better real soon Cherise!
Your counted cross stitch is so pretty!!! Makes me want to start doing it again...been years since the last time.

Janet P said...

I'm sorry you are feeling poorly, and not wanting to do any stitching is a sure sign of being unwell. Chin up I am sure after they get your medication sorted you will feel better. x

These are super cute. Take care of yourself. Blogging and sewing should only be a priority if they make you feel better, not if they stress you out. Hope your feeling yourself again soon~

Deborah said...

Sharon said...

Your cross stitch is lovely! I do hope the doctors can find out why you are so tired. Try not to be so hard on yourself. Sometimes things happen to slow us down and you are still being productive through your cross stitching. :)

Hi Cherise, I am so sorry to hear that you still are not feeling well. To be fatiqued since February is not good. I hope the tests give you some results soon. I hear you about sewing. I have a really hard time quilting this time of year. My legs have been bothering me so sewing has been hard. I am Having a scope on the 11th. Hope I will feel better. Your cross stitch pieces are so cute. Thanks for sharing them with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,
Jann
