late posting as Spunky had to be taken to the vet today. we made an appointment yesterday but this morning Chris decided Spunky was worse so rushed him over. Spunky is drinking water and not eating The vet is doing blood tests and thinks Spunky may have diabetes. I find that strange as he is not overeating or drinking nor is he peeing all the time. He has very dilated pupils and is lethargic. we are both very worried.
here is my desk after a busy week making invitation for my husband's birthday and trying to make the cat cover only to have my machine jump stitches.It was off to Creations a local quilt shop for Calvin, the wiz mechanic, to fix. Now returned with a burr found on the whatever catches the thread when the needle comes down. He made some adjustments and I will see if it works shortly. i use the hair dryer to dry the inks used for backgrounds on the tags. Tim Holtz calls it a heat tool. Also on the table are 4 of the remaining ATCs made for last weeks swap. I emailed several people to ask for addresses and received 3 replies so if you want one just send me your address to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here they are:
This is the invitation made for my DH's birthday party.
The envelopes were clear see through. the background is inked sprayed with water then stamped with perfect pearl. My progress making everything was hindered by my preoccupation with the Diamond Jubilee. Despite the rain it was magnificent although the BBC coverage lacked a certain sophistication and snap as the commentators were less than stellar. they need a reality show called "Find A Dimbleby".
Better give the machine a workout and try to quit worrying about Spunky
