My blog is Going Pink for October in honor of breast cancer awareness month. If you choose to go pink on your blog go to the site and add your name and blog URL. Pass on the word and Go Pink!!
Last night I removed the four log cabin borders and resewed them today. I do like them much better this way and wish I wasn’t so visually dyslexic sometimes. I can hardly wait to add the final borders to this quilt. I’m really liking it more and more with each added element!
And then there were 2’s:
laying out the bed to preview the borders:
and one border added:
and Doug holding the finished quilt minus the final borders…almost done woo hoo!!
and as I’m looking at the pictures I realize that I put the borders on backwards…oh well at least it didn’t take all that long to do…so I suppose I’m reverse sewing this evening….. *sigh*
What do 32 log cabins look like? Well a little like this:
Charlotte was not happy to be moved so insisted on being part of the picture 🙂
Wilbur stayed on the sidelines napping while I was sewing. He’s a good boy 🙂
My sewing room is looking like it needs another clean up job again 😦
Doug and the boys went camping this past weekend so it was just me and the pups. We went for a joyride to Sho Chins so I could pick up supper for myself. Since I called ahead I felt it was safe to leave the pups in the truck so I could run in and pay. Wilbur enjoyed his front seat ride although Charlotte was a little miffed and stayed in the ‘way back’.
The weekend was complete when the pups lounged on the bed. Do you see any space for the momma?? The pics aren’t the greatest they were taken on my camera phone 🙂
Charlotte received a good report from the vet! The margins were clear from the second surgery. We have to be sure to take her right away if any more bumps show up but hopefully we won’t have anymore. Her staples came out on Monday and her scar is healing nicely. She still has a bare rump but the hair is growing back in slowly.
Wilbur as usual was happy to have his picture taken and he’s in full stretch mode as well, he’s such a silly boy!!
Charlotte hates to have her picture taken so I had to help her much to her dismay 🙂
I’ve been working on the Lancaster Season quilt again and trying to finish it up in time for the quilt show in October. I’ve gotten the next layer on and am working on 32 log cabins for the next installment. I’m really happy to be using up my stash fabrics for this project too. 🙂
This post is not for the faint hearted.
Charlotte’s vet, Dr. Roseberry at Evans Animal Hospital called last Friday to give me the results of Char’s tumor removal. She was stage 2 which is no longer benign but not cancerous either.
She went back in Tuesday morning to have the wound reopened and more tissue removed to hopefully ensure that no cells had moved into her body. It was not a pretty sight and all I could do not to hurl in the vets office. Poor baby girl has 21 staples in her butt (apparently she chewed out 2 of her stitches unknowingly to me) and her backside is all lumpy and bumpy to boot.
Wilbur, darling that he is, wanted to nap next to her when she came home and rolled over on her causing her to yelp and get him thrown out of the room and away from her. She was very whiney when she came home which is totally unusual for her but by day 2 she was better and no longer crying.
Of course I’m trying to stay as far away from her incision so as not to hurt her but she keeps wanting to get close.
Here in the pics are Charlotte being excited and thumping Wilbur in the face with her tail (that’s what he gets for being all up her butt again).
2nd shot is Wilbur thumping his tail, check out that dirty nose…rotten boy.
and last but not least a pic of the incision itself. Fortunately it’s no longer oozing but I still can’t bear to look at it even in a picture…yuck, poor baby girl!!!
Our next stop was down the street a ways at the Heathcote Botanical Gardens. It was hot and there were no butterflies but we saw a lot of pretty flowers and some really cool yard art too in the childrens garden. There are a lot of pics here but believe it or not it’s not all that I took or downloaded or printed out for Timothy’s photo album. I’m hoping he can make some of the yard art for me when he gets here 🙂
I’d love to go back when the butterfly garden is full of butterflies and not bees. Have I mentioned that I could totally live in Florida? Of course I think after living all my growing up years on the Atlantic Coast I would like to live on the Gulf side of Florida…*sigh*
Mom, Dad, Timothy and I went to the Manatee Center in Ft. Pierce, Florida two weeks ago before Timothy’s graduation from Faith Farm. We didn’t see any manatees but we did have a good time anyway. We also went to the outdoor market down the street and enjoyed the sights there too. I could so live in Florida. 🙂
