Cherly's Bouquet and other Happenings

It's continuing to be a bit crazy for me.
One of our snakes, named Kihone, was at the vet hospital for the weekend. We picked her back up yesterday... we have to give her a shot and take her back at the end of the week. It's not looking like great news for her... but *fingers crossed* that she pulls through. (we have three snakes total).

In and amougst that of course I'm still battling meds and stuff. See the surgeon on Thursday, be interesting to see what he has to say. I'm still on the veggie diet and stuff for now. I tried chicken again on the weekend and it didn't go all that well... so gonna stay veggie for a bit (even though I do kinda hate it).

But on to the reason you are really here... STITCHING! :)
It was the HAEDless Stitching SAL this weekend on the HAED BB, so I worked on Cheryls. I love working on this piece. The colours are really coming together for me.
Here it is so far:

I'm getting really excited about this coming Saturday. My LNS is holding another 12 hour stitch at their location. Remember that one in December when my car was stuck cause it snowed so much and I couldn't go? Well... this time there is no snow forecast *knock on wood* So here's hoping I actually get to go!! :)
I have been continuing to work on Dragons and will post a pic later this week if I get a chance.
Also... I think it's almost time for another giveaway.
I have more stash to giveaway for sure. So stay tuned in the next week or two for one.

As always, thank you so much for your comments!

"Cheryl" is looking good. I did that a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.

Hope your snake gets all better. What kind of snakes do you have? I love them and use to do reptile programs at the zoo.

Cynimin said...

Your Cheryl's colors are just gorgeous!

Carolyn NC said...

CB looks great! Three snakes??? I'm impressed. Hope your snake gets better and you, too!

Meari said...

I do hope you get to go to the stitch in, and that the dr figures something out for you.

CB looks really pretty :)

Beautiful stitching Mel, hope Kihone recovers. Good luck for Thursday. Have put something on my blog for you.

Mel, you are coming along great on Cheryl's Bouquet. If I remember right, this Carrie did this design in memory of a freind. It never ceases to amaze me how different it looks each time I see it done. Wanda in Edmonton

Carol said...

Very pretty colors.

Dumb question - have any of your snakes ever had encounters with your stitching projects?

Blu said...

CB looks great.

3 snakes? Not your usual pets! What kind are they? Any pictures? Are they poisonous? What do you do when they shed their skin? Does it really peel off in one big piece? (Do I watch too much Discovery channel?)

Anyway, hope Kihone and you feel better.

I'm crossing my fingers for Kihone too. Snakes aren't my type of pet (she could eat my ZoomZoom) but if she is yours I wish her well.

Congrats on a great stitching progress and good luck with your doc's appointment.

The colors in Cheryl's Bouquet are so pretty Mel. Have fun at the stitch-in and I hope you and Kihone are feeling better real soon.

Looking good Mel... hope you make it to your 12 stitch in this time.

Fingers crossed for your snake baby. I really hope that you are able to make it to your stitch-in. That sounds like sooo much fun. Cheryl looks so great! I love the way that the colors just POP!
