Wednesday Update

Thanks to all of you for your understanding support regarding Pammie.  She was much improved yesterday after all the shots but today is sorta slow again.  I gave her pills yesterday and will again today but there are no guarantees.  I will keep you updated.

Connie and I are working hard with a deadline once again for Martingale.  This new book will be released in Fall 2016 and that’s about all I can say about it at this point.  It just looks like I’m not sewing anything because I can’t show it to you when in fact we are remaking 20 small quilts in the next few weeks.  

And here’s the cornfield across from my porch.  I got up last Saturday morning and the farmer had worked the ground in the night.  Looks sad to me.

Here it is before he worked it.

I’m also busy tearing out the shelves in the south part of the quilt shop.

Now there’s room to move the quilting machine in here from the other building so I have everything in one place including the dogs.

    AND the worker looks like he is having FUN. Hope Pammie continues to improve but having been through this as I know you have sometimes it is prolonging the inevitable. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    You are a busy lady! ‘thinking about Pammie and wishing her well. She is lucky to have you looking after her.

    Just remember, Pammie knows where the love is. Keeping you both in thought and prayer.

    Bless your heart! I hate to hear that Pammie is unwell. I know how difficult it is to give cats medicine, even slow moving ones. Your pets are so fortunate to have someone who truly knows the meaning of love.

    Your post reminded me of when we lived in Albuquerque. My ObGyn, who was awesome by the way, told me that he was a veterinarian for several years but had changed professions because of all the overcharging and playing on ones sympathies that was done to folks who loved their pets. He said he was uncomfortable when working with those folks who wanted their pets to continue living when he knew they’d be better off by being relieved of their suffering. Rather than continue the deception he changed to caring for people instead. I’m so very thankful that he did.

    Can hardly wait for your new book, not that I need any more ideas or patterns. But I sure do envy your quilting coop. So much wonder space and very good lighting. Do you still use the sewing room in your house? You have to heat the coop for the dogs so it should be comfortable to sew in there, too.

    Yes, we know the pain of having a very old pet. Our cat was 16 when she met her maker. She was the most faithful friend I’ve ever had.

    You have been a busy lady. Hubby and I spent two days doing yardwork. Our energy no longer lasts as long as the work. Good luck with your new book.

    Keeping Pammie in my prayers.
    The building sure looks different after taking them shelves out. Its so exciting to see what it will look like when finished.

      Oh I’m sorry I forgot to include a message about your cat. I really do have empathy with what your going through with Pammie. I love my cats and don’t know what I would do without them. I don’t like to see them suffer as well. Hope she keeps improving.
