On a kitty note, we found out Thursday that our precious Natasha is diabetic. I had suspected something. When we returned from Mexico, I noticed she had lost weight. Being the egotist that I am LOL, I assumed she hadn't eaten well while we were gone because she had missed us so! But when she began to drink, drink, drink and pee, pee, pee, I knew something was not right. She spent several days at the vet's while they got her regulated. DH and I learned how to give shots (easier than I thought it would be) and how to test her urine (harder than I thought it would be!). DH and I have learned way more about diabetes, ketones, triglyerides, etc. than I ever thought we would need to know. But she is home and seems to be doing much better. Never mind that we had to mortgage the house to pay the vet bill!!! We now call her our Million Dollar Baby.

A Little Scrap Fun
Just a quicky little top I cooked up in the sewing room in a coupla hours, a wallhanging made from leftover little bits and pieces of the Madeira line, a charm pack from the Madeira, and a stashy-border. Such fun to just play. I needed something to bring some more teal over to the side of the bedroom to kinda balance the Ups and Downs quilt on the bed. I toyed with the idea of a large flower appliqued in the center, ala Georgia O'Keeffe, but decided simple was better. I'll just do a quick meander quilting all over, bind it and call it done!
