Hi Dorthe,
I am so sorry you are not feeling well. The flu isn't fun at all. If I were there I would bring you some chicken soup, soft tissues and a good book.

I love the pincushion, it's so pretty. And, I am in awe of the beautiful sea in your backyard.

Take care and get well soon.

Hoping you feel better soon Dorthe, and sending prayers.
Thank you for sharing such beautiful pictures of the sea!

Lisa said...

Oh my sweet friend,
I'm sorry to hear your sick. I wish I lived closer I'd bring you some soup. Try to take it easy this weekend & rest. The ocean looks amazing. My favorite time of year at the ocean is Winter, when it's foggy & cold. I like to walk the beach alone & think. Beautiful. Your swap with Diane looks wonderful. We had such a good trip to Round Top. We talked about you & Julia & how fun it would be to show you all the lace for sale. Have a good weekend, get well. Lisa

Robin said...

Oh Dorthe, I do hope you get to feeling better soon. Your pincushion is just adorable.

Dorthe, So sorry to hear you are sick. Get plenty of rest and drink liquids. Chicken soup is a good idea. Hope someone will make some for you. The photos of the sea are awesome. God is so creative. I've got weeds and woods in my backyard and you have an ocean? I love to hear and see the ocean. The pincusion is too pretty to stick pins into. Get well soon.

Vicki Boster said...

Dearest Dorthe-
Oh how miserable you must be - the flu is no fun! Take care of yourself - do nothing - just rest. I am sending you hugs my friend~~

The ocean is magnificent - you are so lucky to have this wonder of nature just right outside our back door. It is all powerful and so beautiful.

Thank you for posting the little nest give away - that nest looks beautiful on your blog! Keeping my fingers crossed that Maddy girls draws your name!

Oh I'm so very sorry you are not feeling well. Saying prayers and hoping you will be well again very soon.

Your pictures of the sea are wonderful, how I loved seeing them and the pin cushion you made for your dear friend is the most beautiful ever!

Dearest Sweet Dorthe I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your caring and heartfelt words you left on my blog for my beautiful Mom. Your thoughts and prayers mean more to me than you will ever know.
Sending you love and hugs,

Oh dear ~ I'm so sorry that you don't feel well ~ I pray you feel well again very soon!
I think "Sissie" is right! Chicken soup, tissues and a good book sound perfect!

What a wonderful sight the sea is. I would never be able to create anything. I would want to stare at it all day. But you manage to create lovely things. I loved the pin cushion you sent to Diane and the one she sent to you is beautiful too!

Thank you for sharing about the giveaway.

Sandy said...

Oh Dorthe I hope you get well soon my friend.
I love the pincushion, it's so beautiful.
Lovely weekend dear friend.

Suztats said...

Do take care of yourself, Dorthe, and rest. Hope you are better soon. Love your pincushion--it's so delicate and pretty. And the pictures of the sea: such raw power, and yet the sound of the surf is calming, it's rhythm marking the moments of the day. Be well.

Claudia said...

I hope you feel better soon, Dorthe. I know that the flu is definitely NOT fun. Your view of the ocean is gorgeous. I love your photographs.


Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Hallo Süße, ich wünsche Dir ganz doll gute Besserung! Wie wäre es mit einer Hühnersuppe? Die soll tatsächlich helfen bei einer Erkältung. Lass Dich von Deinem Mann verwöhnen, damit Du ganz schnell wieder gesund wirst!!!
Dein Nadelkissen für Diane ist traumhaft mit all der schönen Spitze und ich finde es toll, dass es zum Hinhängen ist. Prima Idee!
Viele, allerliebste Grüße, kys og knus :-)

Mosaic Magpie said...

Those pictures of the sea are almost scary. I am so sorry you have the flu, take care of yourself and rest. Vicki's giveaway is lovely.

Lululiz said...

You poor darling, I am sorry you have the flu. I know you are so busy making your wonderful creations, but when you are ill, thats the last thing you want to do. Take it easy and dont stress over it. A few days off won't hurt.
The pincushion is so very pretty, but then all your creations are exquisite.
Did you try the Hot Toddy before going to bed, lol?

Lovey said...

Oh my Dorthe...feel better soon! hugs and kisses with some warm soup to you...thinking of you feeling better every moment!!! Lovey

Suz said...

I love the scene outside your door! Such wild power!!

I came home from Croatia and immediately got the "flu" also. It was not Croatia (a place I love) that infected me but rather (I think) the airplane where there are all kinds of bugs I have never seen before! I did come home to three good friends having a similar illness. I guess it is just being passed around!

Do hope you get well soon. The flu is not fun :-(


Draffin Bears said...

Stay in bed and get well, dear friend.

I’m sorry to hear you have the flu. I hope you feel better soon. Have a nice cup of hot tea and sit by your window with that gorgeous view of the ocean. It’s SO beautiful!
And so is the sweet little pin-cushion you made.
Warm hugs,

The Feathered Nest said...

Dear sweet Dorthe....I'm so very sorry you have the flu!!!!! Please rest and take very good care of yourself, drinking hot tea and staying cuddled up in your favorite blanket ~ we all love you so!!!! I am in love with Vicki's gorgeous fall nest, she is so talented isn't she??? And Diane's cushion, my goodness each and every creation from her hands is always so beautiful.

What amazing photos out your back door!!!! I can't believe how rough the water is right now...stay cozy precious friend, sending you love, hugs and healing wishes, Dawn

The Rustic Victorian said...

How awful to have the flu, I hope it goes away real fast. What a beautiful pincushion you made,,,so like you, such sweetness. Thank you for showing the ocean, that is what I am used to, I love the violent waves,,,and the noise. I do miss it. Maybe I can get back home next summer. Going to the Gulf Coast is just not the same. Rather mild,,,like a big bathtub. I would love to see more of your coast.
Take care, I will send a healing prayer to you.

Hello Dear Dorthe. I was so sad to receive your email last night and to learn that you are still feeling under the weather. I hope you are better today! But I don't see you posting so maybe not? It is soooo hard for creative people to be sick! I think worse for us than for people who just sit on the couch and watch TV all the time. We want to be up and DOING things. But you take care! We're all sending big cyber hugs!
Love, Diane

Jillayne said...

Oh Dorthe, I hate having the flu! The only good thing about it is staying in pyjama sand drinking tea all day. I hope you are feeling better soon and making more lovelies like the pin cushion you made for Diane. You do such beautiful work and i especially like how you incorporate the driftwood into your projects!

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Oh Dorthe i'm so sorry to read that you are having the flu!! Hope you are feeling a little better already!! I'm a little behind with reading the posst of the blogger friends. Love the pin cushion you made for Diane. Sitting down and creating helps me to get better hope it works for you too!!


She Uses Her Words said...

Oh, the pictures of the sea are awesome! I grew up by the sea in California but now live in the desert. You are blessed to be so near!
I love your pincushion. I found you through Barbara's Treasures from the Heart and am becoming a follower.
