Happy Valentines Day


Queens Heart
by Just Nan




This was a quick stitch, I started and finished it last night. any suggestions for making it up? I'm thinking a stuffed heart shaped hanging pillow - what do you think? It's sparkly with beads, pink paillettes and some blending filament in there.

This week has not been good for me, I got a headache on Tuesday, and it did not go until today. Wednesday I was in bed by 7.30, and I should not have gone in to work on Thursday - but I did, but I knew I'd done the wrong thing once I got there, but I'm never off ill, so I stuck it out. Again I was in bed by 9pm. Yesterday I was supposed to drive to Suffolk for a funeral, dh's Uncle died last week, but unfortunately I knew I would not be able to concentrate on driving all that way (4-4.5 hours). Anyway, all was not lost with dh having taken the day off, we switched to Plan B, a meeting at the care home where mil is. There was a man coming at 11am to measure her up for a specialised chair, which we will pay for, so we went there. But - the man cancelled - what do you know, is that not typical, so it was a bit of a wasted day.

By last night I was starting to feel a bit better, my head did not ache as much if I sat still, but get up and try and do something and it came back (good excuse to sit and stitch). By this morning the pain was in my face and sinuses, but thankfully at 11am it just disappeared. So I was able to go here, and listen to a talk by Janice Gunner, and see and touch lots of her quilts.

Oh, such a nice heart. JN always has these wonderful colours. I think I'd also stuff it and finish it like a hanging ornament.
I hope you will soon feel much better.

Sorry to hear you've not been well.

The JN heart is very pretty. How about makinhg a scented hanging pillow?

Carol said...

What a luscious looking heart--perfect for today!

Hope you feel better each day, Chris!

That's very pretty - I think it would look lovely as a stuffed pillow

Sally said...

A very pretty design and so beautifully stitched, hope you are soon feeling 100%

The heart is very pretty and I like your idea of finishing it.

Patti said...

I still love looking at everything JN because she was the first thing I ever stitched and finished - I had purchased a kit previous to the JN piece I did and it had too little floss and was on Aida and I never worked with either again.
Lots of Love

What an awful way to spend most of the week! I get migraines, but thankfully I have pills that really help! Hope you stay well!

Why not take a sick day when you need one? Really, I don't understand the self-sacrificing attitude some people have. You won't be remembered for your excellent attnedance at work, you're going to be remembered for the great person you are!

Honestly I get migrianes and I know that sometimes its best just to give in and stay in bed. Sometimes you're absolutely useless at work!

Great Happy Dance by the way!
