Someone Special

I usually don't post works in progress but I'm just so in love with the way this quilt is turning out. I'm making a denim quilt for a VERY special person in my life. They don't read my blog so i think I'm okay sharing. This quilt is turning out to be super cool and super heavy. Perfect for what it is going to get used for.

A huge stack of these. . .


Turns into a mess of this. . .


and finally into a large square like this. . .


only 11 more to go.

Still Alive

Yes I'm still alive. I've had a few tests and a bunch of nursing stuff to do, like give enemas and catheters. Fun times. Also been working on a few fun quilts and will post pictures in the next day or two.

A bad pet owner

For those of you who know I'm a little crazy about animals. I cant walk into the pound and leave without picking up another pet. . .great example is the new dog Beans. I watch Animal Planet. Animal Cops is one of my favorite shows and I often feel upset when i see dogs with embedded collars, abused, and neglected. Yeah a bit of a bleeding heart. I just cant believe how people can treat their animals that way.

When we picked up Beans from the shelter he was extremely underweight and very sickly looking. (Hence bleeding heart and new dog in the house.) Over the past few weeks he has started to look great and I thought we were taking such great care of him. Well just the other day, he started coughing and making some weird wheezing. I didn't think much of it because Boston Terriers have breathing problems and I've read that most sounds like that are fairly normal. The sounds keep going on and were becoming more frequent, like at least 2-3 times an hour. Yesterday I told Steve that if Beans didn't sound better by Friday I would take him to the vet.

Tonight I was playing with him. I grabbed his collar and guess what. . . . .Yeah it was SUPER tight, like so tight I couldn't get my fingers under it. Beans has put on a few pounds since the shelter days and forgetful me forgot to adjust the collar. I should be on Animal Cops. I am a bad pet owner and so not perfect.
