I’m managing a bit more time sewing now that we are back in lockdown again. I do seem to have a bit of a problem getting started but once I do I manage to get some things done. It’s hard to pull myself away from the news and the “what happened now” reaction every time DH starts telling me about what he is reading now.
So far today I finished the quilting on these last 3 runners;
I put the last border on a pattern test flimsy. It’s still raining so still in photo opportunities. 😞
I’m playing with some of the fabrics in these 2 piles for my Virtual Cookie Exchange &Christmas Blog Hop project.
And I’m pulling fabrics from these collections and treasured bits of Island Batiks and more to finish cutting and start sewing a new secret sewing project.
I also have another pan of goodies in the oven after all I do need to double check my family favourite recipes are as good as I remembered before I choose which to share on the Hop! 😋
All in all it’s been a good day playing with and fondling fabric.
For now I’m sitting with a cup of tea and thinking of a dear friend who had to make the choice to send his four legged companion over the rainbow bridge yesterday. It will be strange not to see Lucas sitting on his Dad’s golf cart next season. DH and I are facing the same situation today. When we moved here we had to send our boy to DH’s daughter. She called yesterday to let us know Bam had to go to the doctor because he is having issues. This old boy has been diagnosed with Lymphoma so for a while longer will be treated with narcotics to keep him calm and pain free. He is 17 years old and was a rescue from America. He went through training and became DH’s service dog to help DH when his wife passed from cancer. It’s funny because when DH and I started dating I was told that if the dog didn’t like me, I was gone! Luckily he decided I met with his approval and got a kiss the first time we met. It’s been hard settling to life in our new home without our fur baby, but he had so much fun going to work in pre Covid days at the SPCA where “C” works. He knew who to go visit during the workday for pets and treats and was the centre of the universe for the people who’s work lives are centred around animal care. I just keep thinking that 2020 is not finished kicking us while we are down.
Thank you for visiting again. 😉 Carol
