I have two things to tell you about today….first. Have you seen Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks?
I got an advance copy, looked at the cover and thought “Wow, I love that star block”. Then I looked again. It’s our block. We send our blocks out so far in advance that we RARELY remember what block got sent. This time it was this awesome star block.
This is how on top of things I’ve been lately…ummm….I forgot to sign up to be part of their blog hop in association with the magazine. How dumb was that on my part?! It’s kind of embarrassing to have the featured block on the COVER and to not even be part of the blog hop. Oh well. What can I say? Life was more important.
I’m not mad…honestly just embarrassed with myself. It means less work on my part and right now, I’m all for less work. This all reminds me again that I really don’t want to be a part of the “quilting industry”. I want a quilting hobby. I hate deadlines, expectations and commitments. I just want sewing time with me and my machine…and maybe a couple friends or family doing that with me but that’s it. I’m so glad we figured out that we don’t want all of the other “stuff”. BUT-I’m also thankful for the opportunities that did and do come our way that require no travel that keep us on the fringe. It’s just where we want to be…involved only in a bit of it all so we can keep our priority of family first.
If you’re inclined to check out the blog hop, you can find it here at Quiltmaker’s blog.
The other thing I wanted to tell you about is Ruby. Kelli took her to the vet for me yesterday.
Here’s what the doc said.
Ruby lost two pounds since she was last at the vet two weeks ago.
She has now went from being hypo thyroid to hyper thyroid….and the jump was a little too drastic. So even though Ruby is more her happy self, she’s still not stabilized and still not out of the woods. She goes back in again on December 1st. She’ll be tested again and hopefully with the lesser dose of meds, she’ll be okay. If not, we will likely have to investigate the Cushings Disease.
That’s what I know about her for now…I sure wish we could say all is well and the solution is clear. I can say this….she is more like her old self now. She is happy. She plays. She runs. She brings her toy to play. Even if she isn’t well, she’s at least happy and that’s so much easier to see than a sick moping around dog. Little steps and hopefully we’ll have this girl back on her feet.
