Gig is well :-)

I am so happy that Blogger is working for me again! I guess not everyone had this problem - what a pain it was!
OK, on to stitching business now. I want to take a break between my two Chatelaine pieces, so I worked on Mermaid Heaven today. This is an SAL I am doing with Jenn, and I have not had a chance to work on it since last December. Today seemed like a great day to get back to it - oh, I love this one! It is a quick stitch - progress is made so quickly with it being all in full cross stitch. The colors are so yummy. I had not remembered that I had finished Part 7/8 last time I worked on it, so that was a nice surprise today. I started part 3/8 today, which is now the sixth of the eight pages - this is going to move along quickly now, as long as I keep it going in my rotation.

Gig is doing very well. Thank you to those who have expressed concern. Our almost five year old Persian cat, Gig, has had a little bit of blood in his stool over the past couple of days. But the vet says his exam went well and it appears he has either colitis or IBS... or maybe he just passed one of his furballs through his colon. He is on a medication for five days, but should be fine. If the medication doesn't resolve the issue, he will be put on a special diet (well, all six of them will really - how can I change only one cat's diet - LOL).

I found my scissors in my dratted recliner today! Woo Hoo! I had to become a contortionist to get them out - but they are out! Yay! No sign of the lost needle - LOL!

Stitched on today: Mermaid Heaven

I'm glad that Gig is doing well and that you rescued your scissors. Hungry furniture can be such a pain. :) Mine likes to eat pens.

I'm glad Gig is okay.

I'll send one of my kids over to find your lost needle. They're great at that!

I have a blogger account Carol and always have trouble with it, (that's why I tend to use the MSN one) and I wondered if that's why there was no Friday update when I looked late last night.
WOW I'm glad you found your scissors, I lost a needle yesterday and for the life of me cannot find it.

I'm glad to read that Gig is OK.
I heard about the Superboal on the radio and they are even going to telecast it on TV this night. But because of the time difference it will be at 11.45pm. So I'll not be able to watch it. Do you?

I also had a little trouble with my blogger this morning and yesterday late at night, but it solved hisself.
Looking forward to seeing you stitch on MTM again. By the way I am using one of the country colors from Zweigart. They look handdyed, but are dyed that way by machine.
Glad Gig is ok.

MH is looking wonderful. Glad to hear that Gig is doing alright. And as for the missing needle...well lets say when I lose mine, they turn up in the darnest places. Usually where you don't want them.
