Snow, Cold, Furbabies

I've still got this cold - hopefully it will be gone soon. It might have gone sooner if I hadn't caught the flu in the middle of it. At any rate, this means I haven't been able to accomplish much lately. But - my Christmas present arrived today! DH bought me a Stitch Regulator for my Bailey. Hopefully it will be installed and ready for a test drive this weekend.

As you already know, we have several furbabies. Dufus and Maxine were snuggling on a chair today (on top of the ugliest quilt in the world - but that's another story). As you can see, I just HAD to take a picture. Dufus is the tuxedo cat.

Practice Quilting

So I've finished the first practice quilt - and I started taking it off the frame. Guess what? I managed to stipple the top to the leader. LOL So much to learn - but I'll get there.

Mind you, it helps immensely when the frame is level. I had noticed some resistance when working in one direction, so DH got out the carpenter's level - and sure enough - some readjustment was required. Glad to know it wasn't me.

Now, if I could just shake this darn cold. I'm SO tired of coughing.

Gracie Update, Darn Cold

So Gracie made it in to the vet this morning, and had her chest x-rays. The poor little thing has some fluid in the front lobe of her lungs - so she's started on a bronchiodilator - half a pill, twice a day. I'm so glad I have a piller for cats - she took the first one with no trouble at all. She and I will also get to share meds - I'm on a low dose aspirin for my blood pressure etc etc - and she can have one every 4 days to act as a blood thinner. Then she's back in for a recheck on Valentine's Day (how appropriate!).

The darn cold is still hanging on. I thought I was getting better, but you can't tell by my voice. Oh well - it's only a cold. It will go away eventually.

Cold, Eye Candy

I haven't been doing much lately, as I've managed to come down with a cold. So here's some eye candy to make up for not having much else to show at the moment.

Happy New Year

It's a new year, and I've got some new photos. I've also joined in a challenge! It's One Project A Month, and it's to help us finish off our WISPs (I love that term). I've actually already finished something, but today's picture is not it LOL.

I'm looking forward to this - I might actually have a chance of meeting this challenge!

And now a picture - this is another Snuggle that I finished last month.
