While I heal...

...I'm trying hard but I can't stay in bed for too long. In the end it is sinusitis (maxillary, frontal and ethmoidal), not just a cold.I couldn't take it anymore, so in the morning I went to see a doc. Peniciline and stay in bed. Problem is that I can hear my husband and son making the impossible to destroy the house bellow me. And I try to stay away, but I have to come downstairs to see what is going on. Second time I did, the kid (2yrs old) was jumping up and down on the couch, Dad was wood carving in the living room, dog -who should be outside- was under the coffee table chewing on lego blocks and there was a big slice of bread with peanut butter face down on my suede couch. Kill me. Kill me now.
So, I grabbed the laptop, a few magazines and upstairs again. Ignore them. That is the plan. Yeah...right.
I can't really work because my eyes and even teeth hurt...not kidding, so I'm leaving here for you to see another wallhanging made of Bergschaf wool for the base or background; and then red, orange and yellow merino for the tulip's base. Some rainbow silk in orangey/golden/yellow colors on top, white silk, red linen fibers....and......what else... ah! a hand dyed yarn needlefelted to draw the vase/stem.
I forget! some little dots are handembroidered on top... I think that is it. All hand felted (except for what was needlefelted and already pointed out...duh!) . Hours with my hands on soapy warm water. It was fun. I like doing this. It's like drawing with wool!

It's not in the shop yet because I have to figure out shipping methods. It's too long and wide for a normal envelope, I don't know if the dutch post has this tubes where you can send wine or stuff like that. That would be an option... any ideas??
Yeah, go to the post office you say...of course. But first I have to try and recover. :)

Anyway, the "look around Dawanda's shops" will come later today or tomorrow! some really nice things I found!

You sound so poorly!! Wise to leave them to it...but I have to say, ill you may be, you made me laugh! Why do our loved ones take advantage like that?! Keep your pecker up, and get well soon. xx

ps - tubes are probably your best bet..? Think so.

pps - love your feltwork.

Hi Marian,

sorry to hear you're feeling unwell, I had sinusitis about a month ago and it was agony. Poor you! I'm glad I'm not the only one whose family runs riot whenever they are ill (thank goodness I'm not ill very often, I dread to think what the house would be like otherwise LOL!)

Hope you feel better soon,

best wishes


p.s even though you're ill, you haven't lost your sense of humour, your post made me laugh!!

Wish you get better soon!

Lovely tulip! I like the subtle variation of the colors and the beads embedded.

Marian said...

fancypicnic, i seem to be more cinical/funnier when ill. Maybe it is the drugs!
Liz, thanks... yeah, men and children seem to think that a house turns into a war zone when mom is not around. they probably even secretly celebrate. :)

Lily, thanks. I like that too... all the shades of yellow and orange...and red. I like a lot myself.
