Apologies and Making Peace

I want to apologise for the nature of my previous post.  It was a case of WUI - Writing Under the Influence, muahahahaha .....  shush .... don't let the men in white coats hear you ... shuust.

Anyway, I made peace with the pop-a-bobbin shuttle.  It will not press assault charges if I promise to tat a doily using it.
This is the beginning of the Cloudburst doily from the book A Pattern Book of Tatting by Mary Konior. I'll be writing more about this in another post. It is tatted with a slight difference.

The reason for my feeling so down was because I caught the dengue fever.  It was really draining on my body.  I had blood taken from me five days in row while the doctor monitor my blood platelet count. At one time, the count was as low as 60.  If it had gone any lower, I would have to be hospitalised.

Hmm .... I think my altercation with the shuttle was because when they took the blood out, they forgot to put some back in, hahahahahha ..... Maybe, that also explains the wierd taste in my mouth all that time .... hmmmm.... *licking the lips*.

Actually, instead of whacking the shuttle, I should have whacked the doctor who took my blood.  She left a bruise in my arm that is still visible until today.  Just look for yourself,

I was advised to drink lots of liquid, water and juices.  I think I have become addicted to isotonic drink.

Once again, I apologise for the violent nature of the post.  
Normal tone of writing will resume after I return from rehab.


  1. Jon, please do get better! I am so sorry to hear you are sick with the Dengue Fever! We don't have a lot of that here in the states so it's only something I've read about in literature. An infection like that is sure to bring about a melancholy state of mind to say the least! My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time for a rapid recovery filled with love, light and nurturing.

  2. SO glad the shuttle is forgiven and no need to apologise. We all understand how poorly you've been feeling and are glad you're on the mend. Long may you live to tat and tat to live!!!!

  3. I hope that you are feeling better, Faizon. take care and hugs!

  4. Goodness, I hope you feel better soon. I can sympathize; I recently got back from the hospital all bruised up.

    Looking forward to seeing the rest of the doily.

  5. OOOH that looks like it hurt! I've had moments like that with shuttles, I don't think you were violent. Frustrated maybe, but not violent. It happens. I hope you are feeling better soon. Your doily looks lovely as usual.

  6. So sorry to hear you had such a bad time. Hope you'll feel better soon. Please, there's no hurry to reply to my email to you yesterday. Wish you well.

  7. Hi,

    Here's a blog that serves for your spiritual needs.

    It has messages from the Holy Scriptures, that teach us how to have GOD in all the aspects of our lives and allow GOD's rule over every matter:

    Have a blessed reading.

    God bless you.

  8. So sorry to hear you being ill. Drink more guava juice, to raise your trombosit count. And hope you're gonna get well soon.

  9. Oh that was unlucky getting Dengue fever, I remember that from Tanzania. Glad you are feeling better.
