I am a sporatic poster, but Bonnie has had a scare with Oscar and I felt the need to share.
We had a scare a couple of weeks ago.  Christmas looked like she was suddenly pregnant with about 6 kittens.  Poor baby usually only weighed about 2 pounds, suddenly she was up to over 5 pounds and very lethargic.  Just because your house cat never goes outside, you still need to get her neutered!  Poor baby's uterus had gotten infected and was stretched into two huge lobes!  Surgery was successful!   Chrissy is home and  beating up on the 2 dogs and ruling her kingdom!  As Bob Barker has always said:  "Neuter and Spay your pets!".  Chrissy obviously fell in to the :  "If you don't use it, you need to lose it!" catagory.   Thank God and NDVet, she is "OK"!

Missing In Action

Things have been a little crazy the last couple of months, more correctly would say - past year!
Planning a whole Scottish Highland Games has really cut into all sewing and quilting time (and sanity!).
I have promised myself to devote time for family, sewing, quilting and sanity!
Outside forces may try to mess this up, but I am only going to allow a few hours a day to dealing with committments that only really need a hour or two, 2 or 3 days a week, for planning of 2011's Scottish Festival.

My sewing for this year has consisted of: finishing the RR Blogger Swap, repairing a seam on the Devine Miss M's sweatpants and making Hubby a pair of trews.  What are trews you are asking - tartan trousers.
My lovely model is featured in Scott modern red tartan trews.  He has been asking for these for a couple of years.  Note: big happy grin!

Sanity for me is sewing, sewing and sewing, on a daily basis.  I am embarrassed to admit I turned up hems on a pair of pants two years ago with fusible hem tape.   I guess it like the "Cobblers son going barefoot".  "The seamstress/alterationist ironed in hems!"  Really need to redo them considering they are still an inch to long.  My goal for this week - redo hems and stitch them in this time!
