Happy Memorial Day!

I've had some issues going on lately that have slowed down my creativity and to share. Hopefully, this week I will be able to get the computer tech to fix my new computer and get my docs and pics and designs from this one. Yesterday, this old one got another virus so now it's fixed partially until Tuesday when I can get the new one  up and running.

Raven, one of our Labs, was diagnosed with diabetes yesterday morning. She had been sick a while. The first vet we took her to said she was fine but I knew she had lost way too much weight. Then by Friday night when I came in from the movies, she was so lethargic, she was limping as she has lost alot of muscle mass too. She will be on injections of insulin twice a day for the rest of her life.

In the meantime, Miss Flossie Mae, our new kitten has shown us many circus acts of flipping, rolling, leaping in the air and walking  running sideways, hiding under furniture and having a love/hate relationship with Abbie. Flossie is on the porch and Abbie is inside so they constantly are entertaining one another until late at night through the sliding glass doors.
Ruby charged through the screen on one night and we still have to get that fixed too. So much and so little time.

Today I just retreated to read most of the day and got lost in a good book by Michael Baron, called "When You Went Away". It's really good and he has a great website for all his romantic, passionate novels. Gracie, my Kindle, says I have read 36% so far and I am having trouble putting it down tonight for bed.

I hope you all have a great holiday tomorrow. I probably will spend most of it alone and doing the same to get through it. I have finished and framed A Princess Moment and hope to be able to put a pic on tomorrow. I was real pleased with the finish of it, the frame complementing it well.

I need to finish a BBD WIP, then go on to another one but this may change. I have so many to stitch.

Till later,



  1. Sorry to hear about your PC problems. I know how it gets. Hope you get it all fixed and transferred (virus free, of course). Sorry that your dog is sick. I hate it when animals are sick. It's awful that you can't tell them what's wrong and that they'll be better soon. I hope she's feeling better quickly!! Looking forward to seeing you Princess Moment framed tomorrow!

  2. Hope you have an ejoyable Memorial Day! Poor Raven, that is really too bad, but at least you know what the problem is and hopefully the injections will keep it under control.

  3. Hi Jennifer. I hope Raven gets better. At least you have a diagnosis. Here's hoping your computer issues are solved. I like you pictures.
