It was our 36th Wedding Anniversary this week and as per usual we went out for a nice dinner at Ruth’s Chris…does anyone know the back story to why it’s called ‘Ruth’s’ Chris? Anyway, it was an amazing dinner with an awesome server who made the evening memorable.
Again, no pictures… it appears I’ve hit a slump with pulling out my phone to capture special moments – ugh! We did snap a few shots before we left
I haven’t been in my sewing room all week… I’m procrastinating again! I’ve decided to work on another top from the box of my friend’s mothers UFOs. This one is a finished top that measures 53×93 and I’ve recommended that I remove one of the rows of blocks to make it a bit more proportional. I will then use that row to finish the back. The reason I’m procrastinating is she used an overlock stitch when piecing the top together 😮 I’ve never seen that before! I don’t think it will be difficult to rip it out…but I’m not really sure so…I’ve been putting it off 😦
Oh I almost forgot… after posting last Sunday I did finish this double oven mitt from that same box. The pocket sections were already completed, I just needed to assemble the precut body with two layers of heat resistant batting, quilt and bind (LOL, it kinda looks like a band-aid in these photos!)
It was back to the vet for my poor Sammie this week… her left ear just won’t shake an ear infection (not inner ear) so they checked again and it appears she has a polyp growing that is blocking a good portion of the ear canal. This is preventing the fluid from getting out when she shakes her head and just causes festering. Our only options were to have it surgically removed, which means anesthesia and there is no guarantee it won’t return – or – use a solution of cleaner/antibiotic daily for the rest of her life! Good grief! Right now we’re opting for the daily solution 😦
That’s about all for now… have a great rest of your weekend
