A Finish and Stuff to Share!

First off, lets address that migraine...
Dear Migraine,
You have been a constant companion of mine for 23 years. You've allowed me to have some good migraine free weeks, the odd couple of months and even once, a few years when we parted company. I feel that in 2008 you haven't been so kind to me, you've almost travelled hand in hand with me for days at a time for the last three months. January and February were rough, March was pretty good, I'll give you that... However, the last three days are starting to wear on me! I can function today but I can still feel you're there in the background.

I don't like that pain behind my eye! I dislike it even more when you gift me with nausea. You make me go to bed and sleep for hours, you sometimes even make me want to cry... you make me struggle to make it to the end of my work day. I refuse to give in... most of the time.

I think I've had enough now, and you can go away.


Today I had a lovely little parcel in my mail from Peg H., a blogger I have not had the privilege yet of knowing. There are so many blogs out there, and its hard to get to them all! Peg it turns out was assigned me for the Stitching Blogger's Birthday Club which I joined for the first time this year. I received this lovely parcel from Peg!

A gorgeous biscornu

And lots of stashy goodness! A Silver Lining Chart (off of my wish list!) and a Cat's Whisker's chart which I'll love getting to, as I like learning finishing techniques! Two lakeside linens small cuts, and one Silkweaver all in beautiful colours. Also there's 3 skeins of Waterlillies oh-la-la! And some note cards, which I really needed. Thanks Peg for a fantastic birthday parcel, that brightened up my day!

Tonight my migraine seemed to stay in the background. It was there but not bad enough to send me to bed. So I worked away on Debby's Neighborhood RR, and finally finished it... a couple of days late.

Hi Dani:

I just can't thank you enough for doing such a beautiful job on my round robin! I just love it and I just really really love those willow trees too! This is just gorgeous and with you having a migraine no less! My dad suffered with those too for a long time. Surely there is something that the docs can give you to help. I get the aura sometimes for just a few and for awhile a baby aspirin seems to keep those at bay. I hope you are feeling better now! Debby :)

Kathy A. said...

Oh, Deb's rr looks beautiful. Nice job even with the migraine. I don't know what to say about the migraine except I hope it can read letters. Your birthday exchange is beautiful. I love that biscornu - it looks like Sweetheart tree and the extra treats - WOW

Chiloe said...

I really hope you will feel better today. I suffer from migraine too (not as much as you though) DO you have a special medecine for those?

Iy's great you were able to stitch a little bit ;)

staci said...

I'm so sorry you have to endure migraines, they're just so awful.

Congrats on a lovely b-day exchange! And 2.5lbs~~WOOHOO, that's so fantastic!!!

Carol R said...

Your house is wonderful. A beautiful biscornu by Peg - that Indigo Rose pattern is one of my favourites.
I hope your migraine goes away soon - I feel for you.

Mel said...

I hope you feel better today! The migraine sounds just awful! The RR looks really nice. Love the Willow trees :)

Stephanie said...

So sorry to hear your migraine is bothering you so much - hope it goes away very soon! Well done on the RR - hurrah! And what a wonderful package from Peg - isn't it lovely having your birthday stretch on and on :)

Heidi said...

I hope the migrane listens and leaves you alone for a while!

Wendy said...

I can commiserate with your migraine pain, being a fellow sufferer. Spring is always a bad time for me. I'm glad you felt well enough to work on the RR - it looks great.

Have a great weekend (migraine-free, that is).

~Tammy said...

The RR piece is stunning. The tree turned out beautiful.

I really hope the migraines ease up on you, really just go away period!

Nice additions to your stash.

Take care, hon!

BeckySC said...

Dani, I hope your migraine had subsided by now. ((((hugs))))
What LOVELY gifts :)

stitcherw said...

What a lovely exchange to receive. Also, your house turned out wonderful. So sorry to hear that the migraine is still causing such problems. I hope it goes away, and stays away for a long while, quite soon.

Nancy said...

I don't know if you have ever heard of it, but friends of mine have migrains and say the drug 2-2-2 from Canada works for them. You can buy it over the counter at Walmart there. I bought it for my Grandaughter Mandie and she said it worked for her too.
Now, the gift you received it so nice. I love that house you did on that round robin. It looks so great on that piece. You have a lucky friend. Hope you feel great soon and happy stitching.

Sally said...

I hope your migraine will be well gone now Dani. Damned things.

The gift you received is gorgeous. Lots of lovely goodies and the biscornu is a stunner.

Love the RR.

Andrea said...

I do hope your migraine is better today.
Your gifts from Peg are just lovely. Love that biscornu.
Your work on the rr piece is wonderful. The whole project is great.

Von said...

Dani, you did fabulous work on Deb's rr, especially considering how you've been afflicted with the migraine lately. Wishing you pain-free days ahead. Hugs!

Karin said...

Hope you feel better soon, Dani. The biscornu you received is lovely, and you did a great job on the RR.

Myrna said...

The RR looks great! And what a nice giftee from Peg. And, I'm sorry to hear you have migraines. I hope he leaves, and doesn't ever come back! (they seem to sneak back in when you least expect them.)

Gentle hugs...
Myrna :-)
