Not to worry, I have a nice light for hand stitching, so I worked on this instead.
This is called "Monday is Wash Day" and is by dear Vicki over at The Pickledish Patch.
I have met her twice at "Let's Get Stitched" and she is SO nice! I wish we lived closer!
Friday morning, the girl (girl 2) had a vet appointment. I have to say it was tiring for both of us but I am kinda glad she got all the needles and not me! First, she had blood tests done.
She was very brave when she got shaved there and then the needle to collect blood.
Then she got a thermometer where the sun doesn't shine, another needle for routine vaccinations, and her first ear medications AND a squirt of medicine up her nose too, which made her sneeze like crazy. Poor girl was exhausted by the time we got back home. One approved treat is peanut butter which she absolutely loves!
See the red rubber bone? It is hollow and I am allowed to put either peanut butter or Vegemite inside which is meant to take ages for her to lick out. (it doesn't take long) I gave her peanut butter as a treat for being so brave at the Vet. Her family returns from overseas Sunday and will come for her Monday morning. I can hear that clock ticking......anyway.....
I am excited to say a new girl is coming Tuesday afternoon. I know her name and I know she must be bigger (going by the amount of food coming with her). I also know she is my first Golden Retriever and I am so excited to meet her. I can't wait to meet you, my first Golden Girl!!
For OPAM, I made two Breast Cancer drain bags and two tea towels. The drain bags were made from a tutorial found over at Cheryll's. I will post them to you Cheryll sometime next week when I have a free moment from foster dog duty. Please click on the link if you are able to help out too.
The tea towels were made from donated linen (thank you De). I used them for trial and MUCH error trying to teach myself how to do machine applique. No worries, it will come with some more tries.
De did some of the star applique. I am still trying to work out which stitch I like the best, after all, there is more to try than blanket stitch! I also finished all the blue and brown 4 patches and they are pressed and ready for a new project, maybe a baby boy quilt? xx debbie
