I want to finish up with my Imaginary Botanicals series so I started on Stripes on Monday morning. And as of today hardly have anything done. I'm having a hard time staying awake on the train - both ways. In fact yesterday morning I didn't even bother taking my stitching out of my bag. I just sat down and settled in for a nap. :-) I plan on working on this until Saturday and then I start on Sleigh Bells Rings from Sunflower Seed Designs. Thanks again Kathy! It was kind of you to send me this chart. It's perfect (quick and easy) for my exchange on the 25th.
My friend Peggy's pug, Summer had a terrible accident yesterday. She is Peggy's one eyed pug and is doing great in agility. Last trial she earned two Qs in jumpers! We both had high hopes of her earning her novice jumpers title in the new year. Well anyway, yesterday Summer got in a scuffle at home with one of the other pugs and her remaining eye popped out. This is not an uncommon injury to pugs because some pugs eyes bulge out more than others. Peggy and her son rushed her to the vet and her eye was put back in and then temporarily stitched closed. Summer is going back to the vet today so the damage can be assessed. Please keep Summer in your thoughts today. She is a rescue and we have a feeling that love, kisses and laps were not common in her past and she deserves the best possible outcome.
