A very sickly Christmas

I came home from college on the night of Friday the 19th, and by Monday I had acquired, quite impressively I might add, the flu, strep throat, and pink eye in both eyes. Unfortunately, my brother acquired the flu at the same time as me and we gave my parents the flu soon after (although no one else got strep or pink eye), so they are quite sick still. Needless to say, it was not the happiest of Christmases in my household. Although I still have a lingering sore throat and cough and I still have no voice, I am decidedly on the mend. I was even able to cross stitch this evening for the first time since coming home! I'm hoping for a very happy and healthy remaining two weeks of break, full of stitching and reading and spending time with my family, boyfriend, and friends.

Here's my current project, which should have been a Christmas present for my boyfriend, Ben, but was delayed by my illnesses.

And the other side:

I received an incredibly perfect present from Ben for Christmas: the HAED Honor Restored and all the supplies to stitch it!! So excited for this new start. :) I also received a subscription to Audible from my parents for Christmas, and chose the Fellowship of the Ring for this month's audiobook. I'm definitely going to listen to it while stitching this!

I hope y'all had a merrier Christmas than my family! Happy stitching!
