Back to normal?

Well, not sure if I'd call it normal, but I'm back to something.  After being sick, it always takes a while to start feeling yourself doesn't it?  That's the point where I am. Still a lingering cough, but it is getting better each day. That is always a good sign. 

Was happy to make it to the hook in last week. Another good turnout!  And I actually got some hooking done. That felt wonderful.

Here are just some of the shots I got of the day. 

Thelma and her gorgeous cat!
Her Aunt Naomi who either had a Birthday recently or it's coming up. I forget which. She is/will be 89!
Diane is working hard on finishing her rug that was started so long ago. Glad she picked it back up!
Sue is doing great on her first rug hooking piece.
Jill has started a stair riser for her home.
Beth, working on a little chick. She finished it by the time she left!
Nancy making a topper for a stool. Love the colors! The background she chose was a really nice textured red.
Jackie and her next HUGE project.
What a great job with the rooster!

Cathy is finishing up a rug her daughter found. She doesn't like the rug, but is doing her best to just finish it. I think it is turning out great. She says it's just not her...

And here is what I finished working on. No real biggie lol.  Just getting the hook to the foundation.  The chick is for a Basket Bingo for the High School. I have donated a piece the last few years.  They called and asked me to do it one more time since Nicole is graduating this year. I said sure.  The coasters will be  taken to one of the shows that I will be doing this year.  Need to get started, right?    Again, it just felt good to get the hook into the foundation.

This past weekend was a blurr for me.  Friday I wasted my day doing nothing. Just didn't feel like getting anything started.  Then Saturday came and I woke up with a migraine like I've never experienced before. I've had migraines before and I've been miserable. But this time I was minutes away from asking my husband to take me to the emergency room.  It was "that" bad.  I woke up with a bad headache and I quickly took something.  It was if I had taken nothing.  Within a very short time, it was a full blown migraine and I was so sick to my stomach.  I went right back upstairs to bed thinking I could sleep it off.  Well, I laid there for a few hours, nothing was helping.  And the help I needed was downstairs. I tried to get up, but the room was spinning so I laid my head right back down.  I finally heard my daughter moving around in her room, and I started calling for her. When she finally heard me, I told her I needed George.  I told him I didn't know what to do, but then decided to try 3 more ibuprofen and told him to bring me a cup of coffee.  thinking the caffeine would help.  I had no Excedrin in the house, but will get some to have on hand for the future.  Within an hour or so, I was feeling a bit better.  My insides felt like I had been in a fight that I didn't win, so I laid on the couch the rest of the day.  What a day!  So glad to go to bed that night.
Yesterday I felt fine when I woke up. Went to church, the store and then came home and relaxed with the family and watched the Super Bowl.   I'm starting to wonder if my new medicine that I am on for the thyroid is giving me the headaches or not. I have to talk with the doctor about it.  I had my blood work check up, and the thyroid is soooooooo off.  The numbers blew me away. an average TSH level is between .5 and 5.00.  Mine was 73.74 !! (sure does explain a lot of my symptoms, eh?)  I never got a phone call so fast from my lab work before. I had it taken that morning and the doctor called me before dinner!  Soooo, now we are playing the adjustment game again. Ugh.  One of these days it will be right. Just a shame, it takes so long. 

Anyway, that's what I've been up too. Now I need to finish getting ready to head on out to the shop to help Linda.  Hard to believe it's Monday already!  I don't like it when weekends are wasted, and it sure felt like mine was.  I'm just glad to be feeling better and looking forward to a GOOD week!
Wishing you all the same ~~~

Hi Kathy,
I'm sorry to hear you were in so much pain! It's no fun to be forced into spending the weekend in bed because of a migraine.
Lots of nice rugs at the hook-in. I like your little chick mat. Hope to join all of you again when it's not so cold out.

Sorry to hear that you were suffering with a migraine and I'm glad that you are feeling better.

Thanks for showing us those great rugs. I love the rooster one. I'm partial to roosters. JB

I am one of those people prone to headaches, migraine and colds. Usually, my first recourse is White Flower Embrocation (, also called White Flower Oil

As someone who also has thyroid problems, it is a bi**h getting meds adjusted.

Just when we think it's fixed, something throws it off. No fun at all. Glad you are doing better.


PS. Love your playlist. Often will have your blog open just to hear the music!

Hi Kathy.... That cat rug is absolutely beautiful, so many different rugs were there that I have never seen and I am so glad to see Jackie back. I really miss coming hope to be back soon with Joanne. We really missed out on seeing some beautiful rugs at the last hook it, but March is approaching and that means better weather and more hook ins I hope... Great day!
