Feline Friday - 3/17/17

There are lots of photos to share for Feline Friday and HeLP today so Mommma separated the posts, altho they will share one linky party. Be sure to check out HeLP HERE!

On Sunday, Momma put me on the ottoman with my brother. What was she thinking?

Zorro! Really? In front of the camera? You've got NO class!!

Monday morning Momma used the pillowcase trick to get me in to the PTU. How did I fall for that one again??!! She said I was breathing too fast.

There was no end of indignities at the Vet, including checking my rear tem-purrr-ature and Xrays.

BTW - They matched the tile to my furs. How nice!!

The lady doctor  gave me an anti-inflamatory shot and thought I would improve quickly.
Sadly I was much worse the next day. I stopped eating after the vet appointment and my breathing got very labored.

On Wednesday, Momma took me to work before and after another appointment. She set a stool right next to her chair with a pillowcase that smelled like Momma.

But I chose to sit in my Prisoner Transport Unit.

The lady doctor took another xray and a CBC blood test. Her best guess is that I have asthma. Supposedly kitties get it in the winter and the drywall dust from bedroom renovations probably didn't help. I have prednisone pills to take for 10 days but I don't like taking them. I'm quite lethargic and I'm still not eating despite Momma's best efforts. I've lost nearly a pound this week.

Momma put me on the tables today to offer treats.
No thanks.

Momma called the lady again this morning about me still not eating despite the appetite enhancer I was administered on Wednesday. The lady suggested chicken flavored baby food.

I. am. not. a. baby. I'm 7!!

She forced some in my mouth at lunch today and I only gummed half of it back out on to my furs (she's threatening a bib before she forces more on me for dinner) but it tastes ok. I'll consider more for dinner altho I hear she also bought turkey flavor too...

HeLP for Hexie-aholics - 3/17/17

There are lots of photos to share for Feline Friday and HeLP today so I've separated the posts, altho they will share one linky party. Be sure to check out Feline Friday HERE!

On Sunday at ~8pm I put the last stitch into my owl quilt!!! Woohooo!!!!!!

I attempted to take some photos of the top last night (it is daylight until after 7pm!) but it was still too windy from this week's snow storm.

Good Morning Sunshine!

I spray basted the top to the batting last night.

And spray basted the back this morning.

I was trying to use just the fabric leftovers from the quilt so while I had planned an extra 2" on each side of the quilt, I actually cut it much closer than that. The light colored fabric above is the owl fabric that I fussy cut for center of each of the rose stars in the quilt.

The quilt finished at 72" x 75"

Meet Lola - my neighbor's dog. 

I meant to count the number of pieces in the quilt but forgot - I'll have to add that Monday...

And  now, it's your turn to share a project for our Linky Party. What hexie projects have you been working on or planning to work on???! Do Share!!

It's been one of those weeks...

Between tending to a sick kitty...

... and cleaning and cooking for a dinner party for 15 at my house last night there hasn't been much sewing going on here at Casa Grande.

I'm afraid the best I can show you is a little tatting. This is the start of Renulek's Spring 2017 doily. A new round is posted every week or so with #5 posted yesterday. I'm about to finish round 2.

The party is now over and I have exciting news to share tomorrow for HeLP so I expect to catch up on the doily soon.

Sick kitty is not going to be so easy...keep us in your prayers!
