With Mystery IX now finished, I am free - free to stitch whatever I want, whenever I want! Yay!! The only exception right now is the SAL with Jo on Tuesdays (Paradigm Lost), but that is great fun anyhow! So, I ended up starting And A Forest Grew tonight. I had planned to start it on 1/1/07, but I couldn't resist it tonight. I have decided to stitch it on Lakeside Linens 40 ct Navy Bean linen. I will start Hands To Work's Spring Violets on 1/1/07 instead. I got tired, though, and didn't do all that much on AAFG. I didn't even finish the last tree I started. I also spent a lot of time today on a new gift that I started, so I was pretty wiped out at this point.
I heard from Katrina today that she received a little RAK that I sent to her a while back... the holiday mail really slowed it down:
Angus Update: He is coming home tomorrow :-) I am so excited that I can barely focus! This is another reason why I quit early tonight on AAFG. Mike and I got to see him today. He could have come home today, but I think he could use another day and night on the painkiller via IV. He was so excited to see Mike, and I can assure you Mike was just as thrilled. He is voiding on his own now (Angus is, that is!!). He will have an E-collar for a while so that he does not mess with his stitches. He is super sensitive there and we have to be really careful. His bill is paid ($4,500 folks!!) and now we are just waiting for him to come home. He sees the regular vet on Tuesday to begin his follow up care. In the meantime, I am surfing around to find pet insurance! Yikes, that is pricey too, isn't it??!!
Stitched on today: Started a gift, and And A Forest Grew
