47 days until Spring!
It's been a busy week. Scout developed a seratoma near her incision after too much activity this past weekend. I'm applying warm compresses to the area and fortunately, it doesn't seem to bother her. I'm also working on her hair every day which has gotten very matted from the cone. That brings me to my first like, a dematting comb!
My groomer had recommended I get one a few days before her spaying. She knew the cone would make her matted.
We are counting down the days until Scout can return to her normal life and we can all take walks again. She's not sleeping through the night and Mama wants to get sleep again.
I've been sewing in the dining room. My husband was working out of state last week and I finished another donation top.
I had found a stack of 4 inch novelty blocks in my stash and after cutting some more blocks, I pieced this together. The navy fabric is leftover backing fabric and the orange fabric has been sitting around here for years. I'm glad to use them up and it is a very simple pattern. This quilt will be donated to a child at Camp Erin and I'm making a second one to donate to the pediatric cancer unit of our local hospital.
While scouring the sewing room I found a few pinwheels and a lot of triangles and have been piecing them as well.
These blocks are only 4 inches square and I'm not sure what I will do with them. I think I will just finishe them up and then decided if there is enough to do a project or use them on another top.
Lastly, it's almost Valentine's Day. I think this is an overblown holiday but I'm always grateful that my favorite candy is available this time of year!
Yup, chocolate covered cherries! YUM YUM YUM! I have to be careful not to buy too many boxes because I absolutely adore these candies.
I hope you have a lot to like! Link up to LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color for more posts! Have a great day!
