Hello everyone, has been a while other than popping in and snooping on you all.

I have been sewing like a crazy woman trying to get ready for Christmas fairs. My big posh one was cancelled and I filled the space with some smaller local ones. Meantime I have been trying to get a king size quilt finished for the shop window, it is all done bar the shouting and then............crisis! I caught some of the backing and didn't notice. Sooooooooooo much ripping to do and then.......crisis!

There has been a virus going around which Mr Daisy caught and seemed ok quite quickly. 'Man bowels' we called it. Then he passed it onto me. He REALLY shouldn't share these things I tell ya. It landed me in hospital for a few days thanks to almost zero immune system. Boy that thing was nasty, not helped by Mr D telling me every day the course of his man bowels. 'Oh day three, my cramps were worse on day four'. I really wasn't in the mood to compare and contrast how many times I was needing the loo. The nurses of course thought he was 'sooooooooooo sweet' and 'sooooooooo funny'. Rolls eyes.

Now the crisis is over, I am pretty weak but ok and I have a ton of ripping facing me. I am not buying into the theory that they come in threes. There is no room in the diary for any more crisis thank you!

I have been peeking and reading while I was incarcerated and I wanted to send my thoughts and good wishes to those who are desperate in their sadness. Please know you are close to my heart. I may not be around much but I am thinking of you. xxxx

Seamus has recovered from his knock by the car and is quite cross at only being aloud out for an hour in the evenings.

For now everyone.....take flight.............Quilting and beyond!

ok I just aged myself....ugh

I enjoy reading your chronicles, but I'm sorry this one wasn't a pleasant topic for you. Hope you mend well.

Glad to hear from you love, but sorry to hear how poorly you have been feeling. Take care of yourself, and please pop in more often, so we know you are somewhat OK. Hugs and Blessings to you and Mr. Daisy.

Glad to see you Daisy dear! Don't over do, these first few days, you still need to rest so your body can get strong.

October 22nd, 2013, 08:36 PM
It is so wonderful to hear from you. You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. And so is Seamus..:)

Nice to hear from you Daisy, glad you recovered, but sorry you had to suffer so. That virus is a quite nasty one. So happy Seamus has recovered even though he is grumpy. Happy Sewing, God Bless

Glad to hear you are doing better, sorry about the ripping to be done. Have any of Seamus's pub buddies come calling for him?

So good to "see" you Daisy! Sorry to hear about the virus thingy - sounds yucky! Glad you are on the mend. Please take it a little at a time - you need time to get over this. Your stories were one of the reasons I actually joined the forum instead of just being a lurker. Pop in more often, we love hearing from you. I think of you both so often and you both are always in my prayers.

Well, Miss Daisy......so glad to hear that you are on the mend, but not so good to hear about your multiple crisis situation.
I am always encouraging of my family to share, but also draw the line when it comes to all things germ and bacteria related - nasty!!
Glad to hear that Seamus is doing well.
Take care.

Karen he did have a couple of visiters from the pub! they arrived at the door, two of then built like brick **houses asking if Seamus could come to the pub and they would 'see him safely home' at closing time!

Mr D told then....no he has signed the pledge.
When he came in from answering the door he told me that if Seamus got any get well cards he would just have to call the police because this entire village is insane!

My dear, sweet (?) friend. I knew there was a reason I fell for your 'HUNK' - (no, not because he shared his man bowel thingie - shame of shames), but because he realizes the whole village must be insane. Imagine a couple pub hoppers coming to escort a cat to the pub. Ain't there any fair-haired ladies there with whom they can share a pint?

I, also, feel the hole from not hearing from you more often. You take care now and tell Mr. D to stay away if he's not feeling well at all. We can't have you visiting those hospitals any more!!!

Ewenice and her lambkins are doing well - they are almost ready for the butcher.

Many, many, many hugs!!!!

Hi Miss Daisy...Glad to hear you are on the mend. I'm sure you could have done without the stint in the hospital. Maybe you've been working yourself too hard getting ready for the fairs. Best wishes for a very successful holiday season...Hugs, Barb

So good to hear from you Miss Daisy! I hope you're feeling much better really soon. :)

Oh no... You have had a terrible time of it... Do sorry you have been so ill, but glad you are n the mend.

I think the worst possible thing to happen to a quilter is to catch the backing.... I've done it when quilting borders way more than once. All that ripping! So sorry..

Daisy, I was just thinking of you the other day and wondering what you have been up to. So sorry to hear about the virus. Yuck. Relax and get well and happy sewing! Glad Seamus is recovering too. I wonder what adventures he can have in one hour a day. He hehe

Oh my gosh, it is so good to hear from you, but I am sorry that you both were ill! I hope you both can shake this and get your strength back. Would love to see your fair items. I'm doing one at my church that has me at the sewing machine many hours of the day and night. I hope you have good success!

So glad to hear about your pub-crawling fur beast! He must a quite a companion to have his consorts visiting and volunteering to take custody of him for a few hours! What a cat!

Visit more often if you cn, we miss you so!

Mr D told then....no he has signed the pledge!

Hahaha! I didn't know a feline could take the pledge. This reference might be lost on a lot of us yanks (as my grandmother's family referred to us.) My grandparents were from Ireland, and I heard this phrase growing up.

You and your family are always in prayers. I am sorry you got so sick and men just think they are helping. I get it. That cat, he is a doll. I think living in such a crazy place would be fun.

October 23rd, 2013, 08:10 AM
Oh my God, Daisy, I so enjoy your posts. Sorry that you have been ill though. Take good care of yourself.

Ah that Seamus, what a feller.

October 23rd, 2013, 08:28 AM
I'm telling you Daisy you need to write a Seamus book.... it would be a best seller....put it on your to-do list.

October 23rd, 2013, 02:14 PM
Glad to hear you're on the mend, Ms. Daisy! Have you ever thought about writing professionally? You are so very entertaining, and I love your posts!

October 23rd, 2013, 02:47 PM
Glad to hear from your and Mr D. So sorry you caught that virus. Write a Seamus book.. Your short essays are very entertaining.
Thanks for your posts.

October 24th, 2013, 12:33 PM
So happy to hear from you and so sad to hear that you both were ill...get better and love the Seamus story!
