Is October almost over???

I have almost finished the first row of alphabets on JH 9-11.  Once all the way across I will finish that page of the chart and move backwards. (does that make sense?) If I haven't mentioned before, I'm stitching with Gumnuts silk which are lovely to work with and give a softer look.   I have decided to try them as for Madison's sampler, and some two other projects that I have in the works. 

I also have been doing more sorting of books and things.  My husband is in the process of painting our 4th bedroom which was our son's and guest room.  Well we haven't had our son there for 15 years and no guests so it became a junk holder.  So when I thought I had my office cleared out, my husband brought down all the books and stuff in the closet and in the room itself and dumped in my cleared out office.  So more to do, will this ever end... one day.. soon.  The reason for all the work and painting, it is because our son is coming for his father's 65th birthday on Nov 20. 

Along with everything else we are having a mite infestation in the ears again.  When Annie (the mom cat)brought herself and her babies to me they had mites.  We got all treated except Annie who is a little difficult to get too (she's feral - take a look under the cat pages this is explained), however she is getting much better, it still will take time.  I can pet her and reach down an pet her, but if I come to sit by her or anything in that close proximity she will run.  So there you are.  So at the beginning of October we notice the smell in Sasha and Lucy's ears.  But it was not just ear's Josh had an eye that at his conjunctiva is red and irritated, the vet when she visited today says it could be allergies but it could be his teeth.  We are going to try the ointment again, but I might have to get his teeth done.  An to kill typhoid ear mites, we are going to re-treat all the ears again... Here's Sasha after her ears were examined....

See the boxes in the background, I'm getting there.. with Sasha's and other's help...
Happy Stitching..


  1. Your 9/11 piece looks so pretty! Such a bummer about the ear mites. We know all about those. Mia came to us as a kitten infested with them. It took many trips to the vet to get them totally cleared out.

  2. Nice progress on your WIP! Sorry about the ear mites--I remember that from my years of having cats!

  3. Hopefully the third time the charm


Thank you for stopping by. Your comments mean so much..
