Finding a sunny spot today

Got up. Made coffee. Sent Abbie to "do her business" after a 13 hour induced sleep from nausea and pain meds for my hand last night. Made toast to down some more antibiotics (gross but what's the alternative now).

 And then looked over and saw a bright spot in my day. ;)

Abbie found her blanket and dragged it over to find just the perfect sunny spot and now she's chillin'.

Yep Miss Ray of Sunshine she is!

Who me?

May we all be as content as finding that simple ray of sunshine on this cold Saturday

And meditate on those important people and things that we surround ourselves with full of love.

That's what I plan to do now and always.

Got infected especially on the burn of my right hand. Doc said yesterday antibiotics are a must not an option so as nauseating as they are, I'm taking them as ordered. I had 2nd degree burns all the way up the left arm and the top of the right hand is a little worse but I'm working hard at healing it up.
Please pray for me for these burns. I really didn't need this to happen at all but much less right now.
Came home last night freezing to death and after a bath and nausea med slept from 8p to 9:30am.

Going to finish my coffee now.

Have a great weekend and I hope your sunny spot is where you will be!

Love ya,

It's really easy to think about Mr. Darcy now

My stitching slump is done. Over. Just because it just is.

 I pulled another, yes, another serial starter, from my stash as I'm so inspired by Mr. Darcy. :)

Yes, Mr. Darcy is swooning ladies........still in this century.

I have had this pattern in my stash for a long time, put a few stitches in today and then answered the door to a dozen roses in my favorite color!!!

Mr. Darcy sampler
designer The Sampler Girl

Right now, I'm beginning the lettering in Crescent Colors Belle Soie Teddy Bear.

I'm so blessed. I love pink roses! Makes my skirt fly up pretty high. LOL

I'm a bit distracted of late.

I finally mailed the giveaway to the post office and the one I owed Lorraine (embarrassed to say) which also included a special treat for her for waiting through the storm with me. I hope she likes it. Lorraine, thank you for your patience!

Only good things for 2012, positive things are what I'm focusing on.

However, in the middle of this over the weekend I had an accident with spaghetti sauce, boiling in a microwave dish and when I took it down it went everywhere but the plate. I had 2nd degree burns all over my left arm, as I had sleeveless on, and top of my right hand.
Today is the first day the swelling in my hands went down to normal.
Yes, I'm a bit clutzy this week but it's healing good and hoping this does not leave scars. XXXX
I drove myself to Urgent Care and couldn't have asked for better doc on call so everything going well now, healing and back to typing faster and hopefully stitching some in between this:

Attention-seeking, Rug-roller, Rose-stem eater, and Beggar of Treats

I have no idea what has gotten into Abbie but I think she is showing me that she needs more lap time and back rubs. I don't think she could sleep any closer under my neck at night.

I did splurge on a small purse last week that just inspired me so that it had to come home with me.
Brighton makes my knees weak.

When I walked past the largest Brighton store I've seen in my entire life, I had go in as it was like a candy store. They said it just opened 2 months ago. This was on sale and on the inside is this:

When I opened it and read that on the inside, I caved.

All you need is Love.....I'm humming the Beatles song now all the time. ;p

Which leads me on a search for a sampler, kind of a big project but I will have the time.....It is monochromatic and has all the attributes of Love. Have you seen that one before?
I'm on a serious search for it to work on this year.

But right now, The Sampler Girl's Design, Mr. Darcy, will take my attention and affections. :)

I hope your week is going well so far!
