I am still here, still coughing, still sniffly, but still here. I have been trying to enjoy the school holidays, though the odds have not been in my favour lately. The night before last, our little dog, Abbey, had a grand mal seizure. It was all a bit scary for both us and her, and I rushed her to the vet at midnight. Blood tests revealed no obvious cause and so we came home at 2am with doggy valium and the hope that it might not happen again. She could be epileptic, but we have to wait and see if the seizures continue. She's been fine and dandy since then, but I have been stressed and in serious sleep debt.
I have cast on Wisp as a gift for my grandmother's 90th birthday. She lives in a nursing home, and so I wanted to avoid cluttery gifts. Hopefully she'll like it, but if she doesn't, I'd be delighted to keep it for myself. The wool colours are a delight, and remind me of our summer skies, one moment brilliant blue and the next a thundery grey.
This is an unfinished table runner, partially quilted. I am not entirely thrilled with the colours, I think pink for the centre blocks would have been much better, but I was avoiding pinks to please non girly husband. I think next time I will not worry about what he thinks ;) After all, he's not the one looking at the table all day! Poor dear's been working so hard lately that he's probably forgotten what the table looks like.
