Well finally some stitching! I signed up for last weekends International Hermit & Stitching Weekend, and it worked.
LHN Ornaments 2011 Series Cardinal Winter, previously the only stitching on this piece was the heart at the top and a little bit of stitching on either side, so great progress. Obviously didn't do much else for the weekend, I was a real hermit, watched DVD's and stitched. Although I did mow the front lawn for what is hopefully the last big mow with winter coming on fast.
LHN Ornament 2011 Series Silent Night, this was completed back in March, I had hoped to have another two or three finished in March, but life went to hell in a hand basket.
First my old man, Chobe, went to dog heaven just before Easter, nearly 14. I probably hung on a month longer than I should have, I woke up one morning with the day off work, and said right today has to be it. Cried and cried.
Then last week it was Levi, my five year old Devon Rex, with a blockage, and crystal build up, seriously he is only five. The vet talked about surgery, with no guarantees, special diets and medications, again with no guarantee that the problem would not recur, and big money involved, and I was like really, seriously. I looked into those beautiful eyes, and said no. Very hard and I felt like I had let him down, but I could not see quality of life, and forever living on a knifes edge that it wasn't going to happen again. His brother was only three and a half when it hit him, and my sister tried everything the vets suggested, he lasted six months before he had a recurrence.
So talk soon... LiBBiE in Oz (who is feeling cold and heartless)
