Where Have You Been?!

Holy smokes, where in the heck have I been?  I just looked at the date of my last post and it was made over a week ago!  Apologies my blogging friends, sometimes life gets in the way and the time just goes slipping by.

I have been distracted as our Big Dog has not been well.  Lots of tummy and digestive problems; he's nearly 10 years old which is getting 'up there' for a large breed dog so we have been very worried.  Blood work showed that he has pancreatitis and after antibiotics and other assorted pills and special diets I am so very relieved to say that he appears to be on the mend.  It's still early days in the course of his treatment but there has been a vast improvement already so we are very thankful and grateful for our wonderful veterinarian, Dr. Davies of the Kamloops Veterinary Clinic for her caring and compassionate treatment.

I've continued to work away slowly on some projects, in between worrying about and caring for our pup.  I've designed some new items and have started on another one of my CDA challenges, a fantasy soft sculpture animal.  Here's a peek at my May WIPs that are in the works right now:

Now that he is on the mend I hope to get them completed soon and I'll post some more pictures once they are done.  Hope that all is right in your world and in closing here's a photo I snapped of the almost full moon rising over the hill behind our home a few nights ago.  Enjoy and we'll talk again soon (I hope!).


P.S.  I almost forgot, our Old Farmhouse Gathering team's Summer Fun Celebration is still on until June 1st.  Click the banner below to find lots of fun items or type in SFCOFG on Etsy.  Happy browsing!

  9. Oh my, I am glad Big Dog is on the mend... my girl is 14 this year and I worry every day about her as I see the changes in her, so I know how you feel! Time does get away from us, especially this time of year, I myself have not spent as much time blogging because I'm spending my time outdoors as much as I can! Great work on your creations as usual! Cheers~
