Mum did good on her test, she was very nervous but came through fine. She had a TEE - please don't ask me to spell it out - they insert a camera down your esophagus and take pics of your heart. Her mitral valve is calcified, she might need a new one. We're going Tuesday to talk to the heart doctor.
I started noticing that Hermione was scratching and biting, looked her over good and sure enough, the four cats who used to live here left her a present. I have to get some diatomaceous earth [hubby thinks he has some] to spread around, and find something that won't harm her to put on her. She had a bad reaction to the flea collar. Don't we have fun!
I've been so busy fighting the good fight that I've hardly been sewing. I am working on a new little quilt pattern -
and drew up a new scripture stitchery -
but I just can't keep up with myself. Around the house, things are coming together. I hung my Loaves and Fishes in the dining area of the kitchen, and just love it there.
Now for some good news. You may have noticed a button on my sidebar, about the Road Home Row-Along? That button links you to Marian from Seams To Be Sew, who is putting the whole thing together. There are 48 designers of rows [of which I'm one] and tons of sponsors for prizes!! There will be lots of give-aways! The rows all have the theme of the road to home - and they are totally amazing. Here's a peek at my row:
Oops, can't really tell much from that, can you? *giggle*
You can go read about the designers and sponsors at this link: Introducing the Road Home Row-Along designers. The Row-Along will begin in September, I believe the 6th but I'm not sure - I'll be letting you know. The rows include paper-piecing, piecing, applique and embroidery - something for everyone!
I think Marian must be the busiest quilter I know; she's always putting together quilt-alongs! If you haven't met her yet, I strongly recommend going to visit!
Now I'm afraid I must go put on my armor [lavender body lotion, fleas hate it] and do battle. Prayers for strength [and mom] would be appreciated!
