Spring = Allergies

I have a love/hate relationship with spring.  I love the new growth, the flowers, the birds returning and all the lovely shades of green.  I hate the fact that my eyes swell up, the sneezing, and the sniffling.  I'm sure people must wonder what on earth is wrong with me because I go about looking as though I've been through a huge crying jag.  All this despite living on extra strength allergy meds.  Argh!!  Oh well, once the trees are in full leaf I will be able to breath again (I hope).

I found this site (via Kathy of Shawkl) and thought I'd pass it along to you.... go HERE for a new source for crazy quilting supplies.  And if you'd like to visit Kathy too, go HERE

There are some other sources of CQ suppliess that I know about:  HEREHERE, and HERE.   If you know of any more, please feel free to add them in the comments!!

How frustrating for you MA, as spring is such a wonderful time in the garden.... my son has always had allergies and sneezes and splutters just like you, so I understand.

Stay inside and do your stitching - you have my permission (as if you need it) ha ha!!

I SOOOO hear you.
Mowed the other day; by evening I thought I would be going to E.R.
HACK! WHEEZE! SNIFF!
And I have a feeling with the rain and our strange Spring, everything will pollinate ALL...AT...ONCE.

Hi Mary Anne,

I've had allergies all my life but I still adore Spring! Last night, by the time I went to bed, my right eye was swollen shut and it itched something terrible. At least it was normal when I woke up today!

Hugs, Pam

Hi MA ... while I personally do not suffer from allergies ... I know it must be awful for you to have this love/hate thing going on in spring!

How can you enjoy a season that makes you feel so miserable?

Do stay indoors & stitch ... unless of course you need a Timmy's fix ... then just go for it ...throw all caution to the wind ... and do what you must!

Hugs ... marie

I have stinkin' allergies too. Claritin D works best for me, but they limit how much you can buy.

Loved the link you posted (the one you got through Kathy). I'm off to check out the others now.

Thanks!
