A Lovely Year of Finishes...July goal

As usual I am posting at the last minute.
My July goal was to embroidery four blocks from
Bird Brain Designs pattern #490.  I did finish the four and kept stitching
and I now have all eight stitched.
I'm not sure how I am going to set the blocks yet.
I know it will be a different layout from the original pattern.
and check out the other July finishes.

That is about all I've done for the last 3 weeks.
I am still fighting a nasty virus...into week 4 now.
I've gone to the Dr's twice.  
She gave me some pretty potent Rx's...yesterday.
She said I have a severe muscle strain..probably from coughing so much.  
She could not see any cracked ribs from the x-rays
and the chest x-ray was clear...that is good news!!

I took one of the muscle relaxant before I went to bed, and I slept 11 hours.
It was the best I've slept in 3 weeks.

I have a giveaway on my blog and if you would like to enter it
head on over HERE to leave your comment.
I am extending the giveaway until Wednesday August 6th.
I am soooo behind getting ready to go to Canada.

We are traveling tomorrow
...going to Canada for a wedding on Saturday.
I just hope I can do it...the Dr advised against it.
We will travel 4 hours tomorrow and 
another 4-1/2 hours on Saturday morning.
I just know I will not be drinking and dancing.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!
I'll be back on Wednesday with a winner.

Sorry to hear you are still not back to 100%. What a shame with your trip coming up. I do hope you feel some improvement very soon.
Your embroideries are gorgeous. And the design is lovely. Good luck sorting out a layout for them.
I hope your trip goes well and you enjoy your time in Canada.
