A Little Stitchin' and a Bit'o Lolly

Gentle Friends, sweet Lolly is bouncing back quickly... we can see a marked difference in her entire attitude just since Friday when we picked her up.  She's taking quite a bit of medication... pills, oral squirts... and the shots... her regime includes both morning and evening... we are getting all the medication in her that is prescribed,  she squirms and doesn't like any of them!


On the stitching front, I finished up the blue fill stitching, and here's a snap...

... although boring to stitch it does make the sun pop.

Ther you sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again. Stay Safe!

A little Love!

 Gentle Friends, many know that we had to rush Lolly to the Emergency Animal Hospital on Monday afternoon as she was stricken with pyometra, an infection of the uterus... she had a major surgery Monday night and has been at the hospital all week.  many thousands of dollars later....we got to pick her up this afternoon and she came home far perkier than when we dropped her off and with a bag of medications.... including shots.  Here's a tidbit about me.... I hate needles and will not look at one when getting a shot or getting blood taken, however, my baby needs these to fight off any infection... so I'm stepping up to the plate and doing what has to be done..... we are a very happy family once again!!

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends,  just an update snap of Fruits of Plenty today...

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

A Little Road trip

 Gentle Friends, as things get back to the "new" normal I decided to take Monday and Tuesday off.  I have been planning to take more days and probably will later on.  After I put in for the time off I called up my LNS, Needle in a Haystack over in Alameda to get an appointment.  It's a lovely small store and I knew that Cathe, the proprietress,  had instituted a single shopper at a time so I got the 11 am spot yesterday.  I was in need of replenishing of linen etc...  I took some snaps to show the shop......


... there is a large selection of floss...

... and here is one of the areas of new charts...

... what I came over the Bay Bridge for, the linen wall!!

.. and more lovely floss...

Here is a snap of the linen 1/2 yards and 1/4's I selected, all 40ct.  From L to R, PTP Legacy, LL Pecan Butter, LL Vintage Buttercream, LL Vintage Navy Bean, Fabrics by Stephanie Chocolate Milk, LL Vintage Pear, and LL Vintage Autumn Gold, the phot washes them out quite a bit but the light was odd yesterday afternoon when I got home and this was the best I could get...

... and although I hadn't planned on buying charts and such, how can I resist Ann Uffindell or the only Christmas BBD design I knew I didn't have yet!!  I also picked up some needles, JJ 28 gold petit, I really like the small needles...and some floss, that the dark oliveish color (GAST Storm Clouds) is going to work out to be a Christmas present, and the super grey shade is a Limited Editon so I bought all there was, I do love me some grey color!!!  Overall it was a wonderful experience as always, super friendly, and well stocked with anything one could want!!  So, as always if you are anywhere in the Bay area and can make a run to the shop, make the time, you'll not be disappointed.

There you go sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

The stitching for the week... I got a bit more on Peaceful Paradise done...
