Paradigm Lost Update

Here is my measly little Paradigm Lost update for this week. I call it measly because I figure my SAL mate, Jo, probably stitched twice as much as I did. For instance, I finally finished the motif under the snail. It appeared to take Jo only one SAL day to stitch hers, but it took me a solid (very solid) two to get it done. I give the SAL at least 4 hours each Tuesday, so I cannot figure out how I only get half as much done... I never thought I was a slow stitcher.

Thank you to everyone who bought my fabrics today - and to those who asked but missed out! Sorry to anyone who didn't get what they wanted. Most of the fabrics got multiple requests, so I had to take them in order! One is still very pending, but aside from that, they all sold before I took my lunch break at work today! Mike, Angus and I all thank you so much! If you already sent PayPal, Mike is posting your fabrics off bright and early tomorrow :-) (***The Country French Linen Solo, in the middle of the middle row - photo in yesterday's entry - is again available - original buyer made mistake and named the wrong fabric - let me know if anyone wants it - it's actually my personal favorite in the pile and I almost didn't want to part with it - LOL)...SOLD! Thank you!!

A little Angus update: He saw his regular vet today. He checked out well. She chose his new diet for him too. He has a bit of an upset stomach and diarrhea tonight, and that is likely from the antibiotics he has been on since 12/19/06 - and will be for a while still. I might call the vet to consult about that. It can't be good to be on antibiotics for that long. As for pet insurance, I looked into many, and even got some good tips from some of you, and right now the ASPCA seems to have the best rates. No decision yet though (I post this for those who have been actively in discussion with me and/or have been sweet enough to give me links to look into - thank you!!).

Stitched on today: Paradigm Lost

Your stitching is lovely and I'm sure your SAL was not meant as a race. Wishes Angus good health, CJ

Four hours of stitching in one day? That's bliss! By the way, you'll never be as slow a stitcher as I am.

LOL I don;t think your a slow stitcher. I feel that way too but my moms always tells me I am fast. I don't think so. Maybe we are all too hard on ourselves int hat department. Its nice that you get 4 hours to stitch. And Paradigm is looking great!

Yesterday was obviously the wrong day to miss reading your blog! Scrumptious fabrics!

I'm glad that Angus checked out okay and I hope that his apparent upset from the antibiotics will soon be past!

It's coming along well Carol - believe me, it looks like its growing pretty fast!

Sorry I haven't commented in a while, I read and admire everything - just never time to stop and take the time to say hello.

Hoping to rectify that in 2007 though - Happy New Year to you!

That motif definitely took me at least two weeks to stitch Carol! And you are still ahead of me since I didn't get alot stitched this week. Glad to hear that Angus is home and on the mend. Emma seems to be getting over her pneumonia and I can't wait to see her in a couple of days.

Paradigm is looking good, and as to stitching speed what you get done and how fast amazes me.

Glad Angus is doing well, and hopefully the upset system will resolve itself quickly. The fabric you showed was lovely, I looked at a couple of pieces but they were already marked sold. :( However, I'm glad that you were able to do well to help with Angus, vet bills can be unbelievably expensive. Good thoughts headed your way he continues to improve.

So glad Angus is feeling better! Our pets are our children. We have VPI insurance for our rescue dog Storm and love it! It's a yearly rate and they have different riders available.

Hi Carol: Good going on your fabric sale! Wow. Nice to hear Angus is ok - it does seem odd to be on the antibiotic that long.

As for the stitching, sometimes a border or particular pattern just slows me down. I think you are a very quick stitcher!!! And this Paradigm Lost is exquisite.
