little progress

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.

OMG, poor Summer. I can identify with issues on bug-eyed dogs, since I have a Boston Terrier and they are known for eye problems too. I will be thinking good thoughts for Summer.

Glad you got the pattern. It was a pleasure to be able to help you out. Good Luck gettin it done.

Poor thing! My heart and thoughts go out to Summer for a quick recovery!

Oh no, how awful for Summer and her Mum. I hope everything goes well for her, but if the worst happens and she loses her sight completely, I think they can learn to cope.

Ohhhh, the poor thing. I hope she will be ok. Your stitching is coming along fine, don't feel quilty about your naps on the train, enjoy.

That's not nothing on that flower! I think you're making good progress, though I totally identify with sleeping--not stitching--on public transportation lately. Nothing to do with waking up at 3 am wondering how I'll serve cake to 14 people when I have no cake plate.

I'm thinking good thoughts for the puglet.

What happened to Summaer's injury in the eye ? I hope, there is no difficulty in vision.

Lot of kisses to Summer.
