(Updated…Wordpress deleted half of this post! So I’m re-posting!)
It has been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted so I thought I’d take a moment just to get caught up.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, Holly was diagnosed with a couple of tumors. Over many conversations I chose to have the Vet remove both of her tumors. I had to wait until she was out of her heat cycle and ended up having both dogs in surgery on the same day! Holly for her mass removal and spay and Jamba for his neuter and hernia repair.
It was a long day and a long couple of weeks but both dogs came through their surgeries, Jamba has recovered but poor Miss Holly has not. She is still on the mend and it is going to take a lot of time before her wounds heal completely and probably even longer before she won’t be in so much pain.
It still has scabs and she has been limping. Yesterday I accidentally stepped on her and I think I hurt her leg! Gosh I felt so bad. It just hurts looking at her.
My Sand Sale flyer from 1999! So I must have tried starting this around that time, maybe 2000. I remember I went with Mom to a quilt shop in San Diego where I picked up this book and these fabrics. I remember thinking I needed a ‘beginner’ pattern to get me going on quilting!
Another topper done, ready to be quilted! This is getting good right?
And before I knew it I had the starts of a 16 patch hour glass lap size quilt going on!So even though I’ve been busy with these two dogs I’ve been able to just sit and sew, keeping the dogs quite while I watch over them.
This past Tuesday Jim and I went out to eat, I wanted one of those burritos from El Famous but when we got there they were having TACO TUESDAY! I had no idea! Whoo Hoo! Where can you go out to eat, two people, under $10?? Where??? Completely NUTS!!! But it was sooooooo good. I didn’t even take a picture it was so good.
So that’s that. Happy Holidays everyone. I’ll keep sewing here and watching over these dogs and hopefully soon I’ll be back to posting more…
