TheVet--The Postman--and me

The week that is. Let's start at the beginning. On Monday early afternoon, I spotted blood on the bedroom carpet. After checking to see if I had been injured, I asked Mr H where it was coming from. As we followed the drops we found Ms Zoe was bleeding from her right hind paw. She had just come in from  outdoors and obviously caught her foot in the slider track completely pulling out her nail. Off to the vet...luckily she did not require stitches... just meds. By the time we got back I was in no mood to stitch. Tuesday was a work day... someone has to pay Zoe's vet bills! Wednesday the postman brought me...
BBD Yellow Bird. It is a travelling pattern so of course I just could not wait to start it. Sooner I finish, it will be off to Mouse... I promise not to take long.....I am using 28 ct Cream linen from my stash and Weeks Dye Works #1227 Bright Leaf....

I know, what about the other projects. Well, I will get back to them. As you know, if you sign on for the Travelling patterns, you must stitch them ASAP so it keeps moving. Always a good reason to start something new don't you think?.
On Wednesday the postman brought me...

I had won Kaye's drawing and this is what she sent.Complete and ready to work on... I will hold off as I have a few in the works as you know!  I love the design and the colors.... Kay had the drawing to celebrate her 200 followers and 1st Blog anniversary. Lucky me.
I did manage to finally get to the post office to send Madame Muriel on her way to Italy. She will be staying with Chiara (the grey tail). So be sure to follow her adventures.

This brings us to Thursday... I even hate to admit this, but a new project. I know I know, but what can I say. It is a beaded bracelet. I will show you when I complete it. It could have, would have, been finished, but I forgot that I needed closures! I guess I was not thinking at the bead store yesterday. I will have to go back today...that brings us full circle to Friday. So there you have it. My week in review. I truly hope to stitch today and finish the bracelet today and as I have been up and awake since 1 am with Ms Zoe, who is napping, I will probably nap sometime today myself.

A beautiful sky but no stitch pictures....

Mr H and I went out for  ride yesterday and headed for PV Mall.. short for Paradise Valley Mall. It started out to check out a bakery... a bit of a ride for a bakery, but that is us. Anyway, it was attached to the PV Mall so in we ventured. We had not been there in some time. We headed to Dillard's where I thought I had seen sandals that I liked and Mr H said no it was Macy's. Of course he was right. Then he said I was looking in the wrong area because they were Clark's , I said no ... of course he was right again. Mr H spotted a nice pair of loafer style flats and they looked great on...so I ended with both pairs. Serves him right for being right! I hate that... So as a result of us shopping, I did not stitch on Iris or Needle and Thread. I did finish another sweet pincushion from Kaaren's blog and her FFF. I love these...

This time I used 4 different fabrics from my stash and as she suggested, did crosses along the seams. I think I am hooked on these! I am already thinking of more fabric choices for a few more. She is so talented with all her designs and her quilting is beautiful. Stop by and see for yourself.

Recently I have been having trouble with Facebook loading consistently. So the Geek Squad has tried on 3 sessions to help. Each time it works for a short time after. Then there is blogger...still can not figure why my icon does not appear on some of my comment posts...computes....great when they run smoothly, but when they don't.....
Did you happen to notice...my followers count is 203... time for a giveaway...thinking .....welcome to these new friends. Thank you all for stopping by to chat and for you lovely words and emails....you make my day special. Hope you have a great day. I will leave you with a picture shortly before sunset last night...beautiful!
