My Plan (ha) was to get chores done in the morning and have at least part of the afternoon to work on my Celtic Solstice mystery. Not. So. Much.
By evening, I was determined to take control & get some stitching accomplished. The Irish Chain is in the Hoop and the quilting has commenced!
I love this hoop. It made from cherry (of course), by an Amish craftsman in Indiana. I don't always use it a lot, which I should but I love it. Maybe that should be one of my goals for 2014 - try to keep something working in the hoop most all the time.
The rest of the day updates:
Sick Dog - Test results showed it is not what we thought it was. Not good but at least he's back to eating, small quantities of bland food (boiled hamburger & rice) but eating none the less. Boy, oh boy, does he have an appetite! Well, yes, he is a Beagle and will normally eat anything & everything but this week has been all about not feeding him much of anything & he hasn't really wanted much. That has all changed since Thursday's vet visit & the wonder shot of meds. We are now trying some new different meds to see if that's going to help. Paws are crossed.
DH Construction - This is part of what I spent my afternoon doing - holding various pieces of wood, discussing design details, debating construction approach, handing him tools, keeping curious animals at bay, and generally not spending time sewing. I am waiting until the cat tower is finished to show pictures. Today - he will be carpeting and hopefully not requiring too much help - fingers crossed.
Holiday Activities - The greeting cards are in the USPS pipeline. And that's about it. Way behind schedule to say the least.
Oh well, there is always today & tomorrow. How's everyone else coming on their Holiday To-Do List?
