I finished "Rough Day" cat this morning and I really like how it turned out! I realized this morning that this one only took me about a month to do. I don't know if that should be considered a long time, but I think the amount of time spent on it was reasonable. I posted pictures, once again, of "Creation" cat and "Control" cat, so you can see all three pictures that I was paid for. I will deliver the cats to Jan on Thursday. She will frame them in the near future. She is very excited. I have been showing her the projects, periodically, so she has been seeing them "come to life", so to speak.
I am showing a bigger picture of "Rough Day" cat than the other two because I have posted the other two completed already. I guess I was just wanting you to see all three together. I am very happy with the way all three turned out.
Now I can get back to the elephant, and start the roses and "Life's Little Tangles" (my HAED). I am very excited about all three of these projects. I am taking time, every day to stitch a little bit, even if it is only an hour. Those hours add up and make progress! Next blog will show progress on one or more of these projects, I am not sure which ones, but I believe the elephant will be one for sure! I don't know how many projects I want going at once, but I also have a project picked out for my great-nephew that was born in January, Khaleb. My niece said she wanted something in the theme of Noah's Ark. I got a Noah's Ark book and have something picked out with a giraffe. If I remember right that was what she really wanted, the Noah giraffe. I will probably try and talk to her again before I start that project, just so I know I have it right.
On Easter I was contacted by Dan, the husband of the woman I was working with. She will be released from the nursing home at the end of this week. They want me to come back. Of course I will.
We need me to work, even if it is just a little bit, to help take care of things like the car breaking down, which it STILL isn't working right and the credit card that went on the high side of the limit because of all the car repairs. When we have a little bit of cash built up we will take he car to the dealer and see if they can figure it out. We cannot really get rid of it, even though part of us wants to, because we have a loan against the car. That is another thing we want to pay off fast and so if I am working, that is more possible.
I asked my doctor if I could come in this week to do a blood draw so we could make sue my med level is right. I also said, again, how much I wanted to be put back on my original meds. They are telling me that I can have my blood drawn next week and they will talk with me when I see them in May about my being put back on the original medicine. I am so very frustrated with this doctor! I tell you, if it wasn't for my stitching to help keep me calm, I'd be going nuts for sure. The doctor seems to think that the seizures I have had are stress related. Well, they are not helping the stress, by ignoring me!
Maybe I'll have better news next time, on this subject
I need to be signing off for now. Take care everyone!
