Jack went to the vet that Monday and had it all taken care of. He was not a happy camper especially because he had to wear this on and off for a couple of days.
But we managed some fun. I know I got a laugh realizing with his collars on (there is an inflatable collar under the soft blue one), it was a stretch to get through the dog door.
We took some long walks too. I ruminated and he sniffed and peed, in equal measures. ;-)
Marigolds troubles are not that easily fixed. Time may help but this is usually a sign of a deep seated brain tumor ( or other neurological issue), a not uncommon occurrence in aged Golden Retrievers. We can support her but we can't fix this.
There has been time to work on the numerous fiber hobbies. I did a lot of spinning and some weaving.
I'm on the last pillowcase and it's a gift so no pics. But it is pretty and it is being woven in linen. I have also named the new loom. Since the bigger 40" Macomber is Nick, it only made sense to name the new 32" loom Nora. And Nora has her towel warp fully threaded and is awaiting to be sleyed. Maybe today, but then again, football starts awfully early this morning with these silly London games.
I did a little sewing. A Merchant & Mills top 64 in a light canvas and soft baby wale corduroy both in color and in feel.
And made use of the cute fabric selvage too.
The second item to make it out of the sewing room is a modified Folkwear Middy Blouse in linen.
I drafted the sailor collar way down to a shawl collar.
I could go even smaller and I just might for the next one. And side seam pockets were added. A must have!
The deep purple color is not one I usually have in my wardrobe but I've been warming up to the pinks and purples lately.You will see more of those colors in future makes.
I had promised some pics of the horses. I delivered on Dandy, Mr. Photogenic, but dropped the ball on Cooper. You know, Cooper is a lovely horse, a gentle soul and quite handsome in person, but he takes a lousy picture. I have these to offer and you can see both the kind eye
and the beautiful ripples of curls coming up.
I need to do better with him.
Thank you everyone for your shared tears and the kind and thoughtful comments. You have no idea how much it helps, but it does. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Parting shot: My, what funny pillows you have my Dear!
