Here's an update on my WIP. Also an update on Miles. He is doing great. No more bandages and he is running after Spaz. The weather here is pretty gloomy. Rain all day today. We need the rain to bring grass and flowers. Have a great week.

This arrived in the mail yesterday. It is my bigo prize from my stitching group in yahoo. I love Lizzie Kate and the holidays are always fun to stitch.
Thank you Donna so much

Name of Designer/ Miles

After I posted the other day I forgot to add the name and title of the second WIP. Silly me. ;) Anyway, the designer is Pat Rogers and the name of the pattern is Antique Alphabet. The date on the pattern was 1984. I got it at Welcome Stitchery in Crystal Lake, Ill.
My younger cat Miles was declawed. I took pity on my older cat since she was declawed also. He truly is an alpha male around her. She has put up with alot from him. She goes outside whenever he wants to play. I do have to say that she is a more playful cat now that we have him. She has picked up some of his bad habits and I have let her. Who says you cant teach an older sibling new tricks. LOL
Spaz had to have dental surgery. After I had to give her antibiotics. I got both of them in at the same time. And thank goodness for tax refunds. After a couple weeks after the declaw he got an infection in his paw. Not related to the declaw. Now he is on antibiotics and we have a recheck tomorrow at the vet.

Happy St. Patricks Day. Everyone is Irish on Tuesday.

This is my second WIP. I stitched this in the middle 80s. My younger son cut the pattern up and I thought I would never find this pattern again. I threw the piece away. But I went to a stitching shop in Illinois and I FOUND IT!! This is how far I have gotten. The weather here is just gorgeous. Suppose to be in the 60s tomorrow. Cannot wait for spring. Take care.

I have been quiet lately. My life was pretty hectic. I have put school on the back burner and thinking of doing more "fun" stuff. I will get back to it. I have started a couple of new WIPs. Work has been pretty tame until Friday. Two admissions. The good thing was Adrian had a sleepover. I came home to a quiet house. I have been sneezing and sore throat on and off. I took it really easy this weekend. The first WIP I received in an exchange from my stitching group. I love the colors peaches, white, and red. It kind of reminds me of a paisley print.
