Just a teensy update

My emotions have been all over the place lately!

I found out last week a family member has an illness that I’m not supposed to be worrying about (advice from my mother), but I am freaking out over it.

The Saints won the Superbowl! 

This week marks a year since I lost my HeartBandit.

Kahuna is sick, and I’m afraid he has pneumonia again.  He’s promised to go to sick call this morning and I’m trying to be patient and not contact him to see if he’s gone.

I had another medical test yesterday and am dealing with the afteraffects of it today.  Ouch.  Hopefully this is the last test.  I had to have it because something showed up in another test and because I’m having ‘elective surgery’ I have to be ‘healthy.’  Sigh.

My stitching has been holding me together.   With that I’m still stitching on Home of a Needleworker. 

I didn’t stitch last Thursday because we went out to the street market with the dogs.  Harley had an accident while there and it just put me out of stitching mode when we got home.  She’s okay, just a little bruised in a couple of places.  (Updated:  Harley got barely stepped on and because she was crowded by people and very large dogs she freaked out, got herself wound up in her leash like a yo-yo, and body-slammed herself into the street.  I was standing across the street with Jasper and it was scarry watching it and not being able to stop what I knew was about to happen.  I was worried that with her tied down on the ground she would get really stepped on or attacked by one of the other dogs.)

I didn’t stitch last Friday because we went to the opera!  La boheme.  Front row seats.  Nice surprise from Kahuna.

I didn’t stitch much on Saturday because I had errands to run, salon appointment, sitting in the pharmacy for an hour, etc.

So last night I decided to just keep on going with what I’m working on since I’m enjoying it soooo much.  I’m in love with GAST Sable that I’m using for the roof and the upper and lower border.  I know I’ll be using it again in something.  It reminds me of mink, chocolate, warmth, and right now ‘roof shingles’ 😆  I think it would be great in a quaker design.

I don’t feel too terribly bad about not switching to my next project because I am almost finished with Quaker Needlework Treasures anyway.

This Saturday is another stitchy Saturday up north and I’ll be working on Summer Queen.

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your family member’s illness, and that you haven’t been feeling up to par yourself. And sorry about Kahuna not feeling well, too! And poor Harley! What on earth happened. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since Bandit passed. : ( Gosh, sounds like you have a lot going on.

  2. Hope the Kahuna went to the doctor! Pneumonia is serious, nag him until he goes. Hope they get your stuff figured out soon so you can have your surgery.

    Lots of hugs on the anniversary, I still remember when you lost Bandit, so sad and I remember how devastated you both were. Hope your furbabies give you extra cuddles :-).

    Stitching is what keeps us sane in the midst of the craziness, LOL!
