I’ve got a lot of irons in the fire but I’m getting to the bottom of the hole I think.
Huge thank you to Kati for sending me the lovely peach batik to make my fabric flower! I had no peach in my stash at all and nothing matched the show ribbon I needed to make a flower for. Kati to the rescue with this perfect fabric! I love how it turned out. I have three ribbons left to make flowers for.
I finally got all my string blocks into the mail for the July string swap. I’m starting to receive some back! I’ve gotten 8 blocks back so far. Here are four of them. I love seeing all of them together! It should make a nice quilt.
I had to search for about half an hour trying to find out where I put all my Origins fabric. I know at one point I gathered all of it up and stuck it somewhere. I finally found it after nearly giving up. It was on my bookshelf in a deep ceramic bowl. All this fabric should make a nice border for two Origins quilts that I need to finish! One is a jelly roll race and the other is the Spring Fling that I haven’t named yet.
While searching for the missing Origins fabric I located my Clover iron that I’ve been trying to find for months now.
Some sad news now, poor Bernie had to go to the vet yesterday. I thought she had a hotspot since she’s had a few this year and I saw a raw area on her behind. The vet spoke to me yesterday afternoon when I went to pick her up and explained she’d ruptured an anal gland! I didn’t even know she’d been having issues and there wasn’t any weird smell. They fixed her up and now I have to put ointment on her twice a day. She also gets pills twice a day too. It’s always an adventure trying to put topical ointment on a dog that hates to be handled. I came up with a workaround though. I empty her antibiotic capsule into a spoonful of peanut butter and hold that out while I rub the ointment on with a cotton ball. Keeps her too busy to bite me and everyone leaves with all their appendages intact.
She does have to stay in the cone for 2-3 weeks. And get monthly anal gland extraction.
