We had a mini emergency here at the tail end of the weekend with His Royal Orangeness deciding to have another bout of kidney-itis. Naturally this happened at 10.30pm Sunday night which necessitated a trip to the 24 hour vet (think huge bills and the vet rubbing his hands in glee because he gets to go Bora Bora on my dime for a holiday this year).
All’s well that ends well. We got to it early this time so he just needed some medication to ensure he could take a leak and some more medication to reduce anxiety and stress and he was home by early Monday afternoon. 5 minutes after arrival back home he was doing this so I figure he must have felt a lot better.
Naturally I had to take the afternoon off work to cat sit post discharge.This presented a perfectly legitimate opportunity to get some week day sewing done. And did I take this golden opportunity to sew my little heart out? No I didn’t – both the cat and I (appropriately) cat napped for three hours instead.
That meant that I was padding around the house until 3 am that night . The cat did what cats do and slept the night away. I wonder what it would be like to sleep 20 hours out of every 24. At the moment he's drugged up to the eyeballs so that probably helps.
Anyhoo-in the wee small hours I put the binding on Superheroes 1 and Briar Rose so I have plenty of hand sewing to do when the mood strikes.
And in the spirit of putting myself out there I'm donating Briar Rose to the Royal Society for the Blind for a silent auction to raise money for training guide dogs. I'm equal parts terrified and thrilled. What if nobody bids?
I finished the back for Superheros 2 and I really like the simplicity of it. I have plans to de-simplify it somewhat by adding some appliqué and if I’m feeling REALLY brave maybe some trapunto. Hey – you have to cram in the creative thoughts as they occur. Even if it is all in the same quilt.
And I found the perfect thread for quilting Superheroes 2 yesterday in my lunch break while I was shopping for heat bond for the applique. I love variegated thread.
And on top of all of that I still have a baby quilt to make , and my goal list for March reminds me I shot my stupid big mouth off about having that finished by the end of March ...hmnnnnnnn. I sort of have a loose plan. We'll see
how if that pans out.
Happy Hump Day people. May Wednesday be kind to you all.
