Crazy Exchange for Veronique

Veronique has received the Crazy Exchange that I sent to her. It arrived in Belgium so quickly! Veronique's list of favorites were Margaret Sherry, Lizzie Kate and scissor fobs. I did not have a lot of Margaret Sherry charts, except for ones in the few UK magazines I have. Those were all rather large. As for Lizzie Kate, I also have some larger charts, and ones that feature holidays like Halloween and Christmas. Not knowing if Veronique likes or celebrates these holidays, I opted not to stitch those. I did find this one, though. I figure a good luck fob would work for anyone. She likes it, and says she needs the luck right now :-)

Luck to You! Fob

Since I enjoyed stitching on Dawn so much last night, I decided to pick it up again tonight. The dress is really getting there now!

Ava went to the vet today for her follow up. The vet is not sure she has rodent virus. She really could not say what it is yet. She says several syndromes look similar to each other. Right now, her bottom lip is very swollen and she looks like she is sticking her tongue out. And, it is clearly very sensitive. The upper lip ulcer/sore is completely gone, and inside her lips looks good thanks to the Clavamox. The vet gave her a very low dose of cortisone, since Ava is very small. She says to come back if it does not clear the swelling. They will then do a biopsy and see where to go from there... here's to praying the cortisone does the trick and this is a one time issue for her!

Stitched on today: Stitched on a gift, and Dawn, Fairy Spirit of Grace

Another great little fob. I just love seeing what you finish.

Dawn is really beautiful. I finally enlarged it to see the detail. Congrats on a wonderful stitch.

Hope the Cortisone helps little Ava. It's not fun having a sick pet.

Carol, I really love Dawn. She looks wonderful. Wonder how you'll frame her... I'm so sorry about Ava. She must be so confused by all this, and wondering what's on her little lip. What a cute fob, too!
