Did you miss me?

This last week and a half has just been a bear for me.  Anne and I have come down to CA for holiday and our very first day here Anne ended up in the ER. Good grief! She is so my child! I swear, not a vacation went by when I was a child that I didn’t end up in the ER – yes I am a natural born klutz. I am beginning to think Anne is too. Of all my traits that she just had to inherit!

The next day I went to put her new medication on her on Tuesday only to discover that it had peanut oil in it! Her doctor and the pharmacy are so lucky that I read everything before letting it near her because I’m fairly certain that would have landed us back in the ER! Would have had to kill them!!! (Sorry, that is the mama bear in my talking)

The day after that…my 18 year old cat started throwing up blood at 2 am.  That was traumatic and he spent 2 days at the vet’s house. I swear it was like the hits just kept on coming!

On the upside, Anne did NOT have a concussion, but they were concerned and Paws is back home with us, though he is still adjusting to his medication. Hoping and praying that it kicks in quickly.

In sewing news…I set up my mom’s sewing machine on Saturday (talk about a learning curve, sewing on a 20 year old machine!) and I actually finished a quilt!  Depending on the weather, I will post pictures tomorrow.

Now how about some winners… the 2 winners for the charm packs have been announced over on my tutorial for the Mirrored Diamonds blocks – I will be emailing them later today.  The winner of the Selvages is – commenter number one – Lisa McGriff. I will be emailing you later today as well unless you beat me too it!

Hopefully back tomorrow with pretty quilt pictures!

    I definitely missed you! Yours is one of the few blogs I read almost every day, even if I have to catch up sometimes. I’m so glad Anne is ok, and hope he cat is well soon. Thank goodness you DO read everything, and this experience only reinforced that.

    I laughed at your sewing on a 20-year old machine, since I think my standby, favorite workhorse Viking is almost that old! It’s 16-17 years along. Another favorite is my Singer 301, and it’s WAY older than that.

    Oh I always miss you! I finally, finally got my sewing ON. Finished a top to send my daughter that I had in the works since July and a xmas giveaway tonight. Feels good. And leading me to read more before heading onto to dreamland. Hope to have more reading and sewing time soon. Hope you are having fun in the bay area. Hugs!
