Isn't it great to sit & sew or stitch, knowing that in various other homes, there are other ladies doing the same thing? I love it! Thanks so much to Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' for hosting us each month♥
My FNWF didn't go anywhere near to plan... I'll get to that in a moment... but I did manage a tiny bit of stitching in the end.
During the week I decided it was time to start the second attempt of Redwork Noel... Some of you may recall the unfortunate issue I had with thread colour inconsistency the first time I was stitching it. Well the sulking is long over, & I'm sure I have purchased enough carefully-inspected thread to stitch it several times over!
It won't be ready for display this Christmas, but I'm not fussed about that... cross stitch is kinda like the slow-cooker of stitching... it will be ready super-early for 2014!
So back to the Site Manager emergency... what a caper... I took him to the Vet for his regular vaccinations yesterday... boy was he hyped to a mix of excitement & anxiety... Back at home, he rapidly became very agitated; shaking his head around & panting terribly... plus his face had swollen something terrible & his skin had gone red - all this in barely 20 minutes!! Took him back to the Vet , she diagnosed an allergic reaction to the vacc's, & she promptly gave him injection of antihistamine & a steroid. We stayed there for a bit so he could be observed, & we finally rolled into the garage at just after 6pm!
|Hard to get a pic that showed how bad it was|
After all that stress & having to keep an eye on him through the evening, those little crosses were all I had the mind for! Happily, he is pretty much back to normal this morning.
I am looking forward to a bit of blog-hopping later, visit those who were perhaps more productive than me!!
