Sewing for the Grand-Dogs

It was a productive day for dog blankets.  I only had 3 pieces of fleece so it worked out.  I sewed until late then we went to Kelley’s for dinner, came home and fed the dogs and I went back into the sewing room.  Intending to get back in there today, as well.  I have a native Texan garden flag (~100,000 stitches) up next then 3 sofa cushions and a dog bed for Mimi (will insert bed pillow for stuffing; it’ll be washable), etc.

I’ll probably be making a trip to Starbucks and the car wash shortly so sewing will have to wait until the afternoon.

Sunshiny Day

Woke up earlier than normal today though I don’t know why.  I’ve already done some sewing and took Dusty and Zoe for coffee.  In my office now trying to be quiet so my hubby can nap in the living room.  Here are some things I’ve sewn and not posted:

 

A set of silver sheets
Blanket for my great-grandson, Damian
Blanket for my great-granddaughter, Lena
Blanket for my great-granddaughter, Anna
Blanket for my son
Blanket for my daughter-in-law
Blanket for my grandson

 

Blanket for another grandson

I also did another couple of sheet sets that I didn’t photograph and some mending, so it hasn’t been a total loss.  I have some things cut out to embroider and sew but just don’t have the ambition to get them done.  I also finished all the damned laundry except for the folding.  I hate folding clothes so I always leave it for last.  I let R fold his own since I’ve had the eczema on my hands to contend with.  He helps so I can’t complain.  He’s a little under the weather right now so I’m trying not to ask for anything I can’t do myself.

Well, I’m outta here.  Things to do.  See ya!

 

 

Wow! Things Have Changed!!

I couldn’t even get into my own blog today; don’t know what WordPress did with my information but it was all wrong.  Goes with the rest of my day, I guess.

Things have been “interesting” around here lately.  I won’t go into detail but we’re on a downhill slide, it seems.  I’m trying to maintain some semblance of normality but don’t know how long (or if) it will last.  So, in that vein:

The dogs are all healthy and mostly happy.  They’d be happier if I’d load them all in the car daily and go for Starbucks, but I just am not able to manage them all by myself.  I did take Bandit and Zsa Zsa today.  They got to go to the car wash, Starbucks and the post office, so they are in deep slumber at the moment even though we’ve been home for hours.

I haven’t been in the sewing room lately because I’ve just felt like crap.  The allergist has had me on multiple medications that did not agree with my body.  I have been off the prednisone since last Sunday but I still feel bad.  I have managed to get the laundry done and the house mostly clean but it’s been a slow process.  I still have stuff in the dryer that’s been there over 24 hours.  And the hamper continues to fill even though I’ve given it the evil eye on various occasions.  My blood pressure is elevated; my back hurts; my knees hurt; I have a recurring headache; my neck hurts; and I’m exhausted.  Other than that things are going to hell around me.  I always try to be positive in this medium but not possible today.  Sorry.  I’d cry if it would help, but it won’t so I won’t.  Maybe.
