Update on the boy...

Shadow is really doing great. He slept most of yesterday, and today he is back to his normal, whiny, annoying self. Yay for getting better!

Toothless wonder

Our poor Shadow had surgery today. He had a fistula (hole) in his gum that would not heal. So he had some x-rays and then had to have a tooth removed. The vet also found some extra hard gum tissue that he removed at the same time. He is now missing his left upper canine. Poor guy was wobbly when we took him home, but other than that he seems ok. He ate and drank, and peed and pooed, so at least that seems to be working. He is on antibiotics for ten days. Hopefully this is the end of his troubles!

Jewelry as therapy

Making jewelry is a good thing!

Don't mind me...

I am in a grumpy mood. Sigh-- I don't really want to be though. It's not like I have any reason to be grumpy; there is not much going on right now to make me grumpy. I am just in a generally pissy mood. Meh.

A pillow and a toe

I haven't been posting because a) I haven't been in the mood, and b) I have been crafting!

I have been crocheting in the evenings, but I won't post a pic because it looks pretty much the same as before, except bigger ;). I also have been sewing.
On the left, is a pillow made in a similar way to my last purse. I hand embroidered the "live with joy" on the front. I probably could do a little beading on it, but this was just a practice pillow, so I did not pre-iron it or anything. It stands on its own because it has a flat bottom. It is great to throw at my hubby! The "toe" on the right is a practice doll. I learned a lot doing this little doll. I learned about size and distortion, and why applique might be a little easier than trying to inset material (like on the face). I didn't finish it because it was just a learning experience, and, well, it looks like a deformed toe :D. I hope my next doll doesn't look like a finger or anything.
