and the last beastie is done

I finished up the last beastie Monday on the way home from work as predicted. But rather than stopping in the direction I was going and moving back up to the biggest motif of the piece, I decided to continue down to the corner of the piece. No special reason other than it was the piece of chart that I had with me. So I'll finish up the dogs on the bottom and then evaluate what to do next. My new Loose Feathers chart should arrive today and I think I want to stop St. Reatham for a couple of days and work the two charts on the pattern (the trinket box and part 4 of the mystery). I'm not going to do my box in the silk that is called for but convert mine to Weeks and Crescent Colours - I'm sure it will look just as nice for more than half the price.
What do you do when your puppy is feeling under the weather? Why you take pictures of course! I picked up Aoife at 9:00am this morning and she sure does look pitiful. I didn't know they were going to cone her so I didn't have a better alternative on hand. But I took care of that and a soft sided cone will arrive tomorrow. The power of overnight shipping.




Here is a close up of her plastic surgery. Widening her nostrils will really make a difference in her ability to get air quickly. And the stitches are such a pretty purple. :-) Everyone loved her at the clinic and I have to agree, she is a very special pug. :-)

Aww, she does look miserable, bless her! :) I hope she's feeling better soon.

I can't decide whether to do the new LF in the silks (I only have one of the recommended colours) or sub to cottons. I think either way I might have to purchase some colours, so I might just save up for the silks. Mine hasn't arrived yet though, so I don't need to make any hasty decisions ;)

Awww, your little Aoife looks so sad, but she'll be feeling better soon. I am sure she is glad to get back home.

We're so glad Aoife is back home. Sorry about the cone...you should look at our Pugtoberfest pictures on our blog...our friend Sophie was coned so her Mommy made her a flower and her sister Dixie a bumblepug!
Feel better soon!

Awww, poor thing! I'm so glad to hear that she's doing well though and recovering from her surgery.

AWWW! Look at that sad little face. She's not happy is she? Hope she feels better soon :)

Great progress and really looking forward to seeing your new Loose Feathers work. I won't use silks either - too expensive :)
