STNA Blog Hop #15: Stitching When Sick

Stitching the Night Away Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop


 It's Blog Hop time again!! Here is this round's prompt:

"Eventually there comes a time when you’re not feeling well, whether it’s the flu or a cold or something else entirely. The question is, do you manage any stitching when you’re under the weather or does it just have to wait for better days?"

Unfortunately, I find that I can't stitch AT ALL when I'm sick. I tend to get several sinus infections throughout the year, which cause blinding headaches and only go away with large doses of Nyquil and lots of hours of sleep. I don't normally get any kind of intestinal sickness or run fevers for any reason. I can only think of 3 times in my life I've been "that kind" of sick, and when I was it was during times that I had stepped away from stitching anyway.

I've tried to put in some stitching time while I'm down, especially when thinking about all the free time that's being wasted while I'm off work trying to recuperate. Unfortunately, if I can get the headache to go away long enough to see straight, I find that the medicine is putting me to sleep and I doze off mid-stitch. I've woken up to some interesting results from my medication induced sleep-stitching in the past, so I try and avoid that now. The last thing I want to do when I feel better is frog a bunch of nonsense!

How about you? Can/do you stitch while sick??

  1. Ahh...we stitchy minds think alike. Whenever we're not stitching, we're thinking about what we could be stitching and how much time we're wasting. ;)

    I can't stitch when I have a flow-blow migraine. I'm pretty useless at that point.

  2. I'm with you, I don't get any stitching done at all when I'm sick. I'm usually medicated and fuzzy-headed, which can only lead to frogs. I do however get a lot of stash shopping done when I'm sick :-p
