Charlie's Home!

After 3 days with the vet, Charlie is home for observation. I've seen the x-rays, he still has thread in his colon. The hope is that he'll relax in his own home and let loose. I have been given some tongue depressors, to examine anything he passes. The doctor wasn't sure I'd do it. He doesn't know me well, does he? I'm likely to take pictures!

Anyway, here is Charlie, patiently waiting to be let outside. Sorry, Charlie. It's going to be a while before you're let loose again. Unless you let loose, a lot.

Malcolm is having FITS now that Charlie is back. He's been glaring and staring and hissing at everyone and everything since Charlie walked in the door. Get over it, Malcolm.

While waiting to hear about Charlie, I finished this quilt-for-hire. It's not often that I love a quilt so much that I'm inclined to make a similar one for myself. This is the backside of a very simple quilt.

I quilted it on the diagonal, running leaves through the channels.

Here's a bit more of the quilt. It's made completely of batiks. As I said before, I love it!

As promised, here is a picture of Chupa. This is as interested as she got: she lifted her head. It went right back down, when she saw that I wasn't my son.

Here's a close-up. Did someone really think this dog would look good with teddy bear ears?

Well, that's what I've got for you today. I actually finished a small piece that I've been working on all month, but I'll save it for tomorrow. I think you will like it. It's got LOTS of beads.

So glad Charlie is better. Surprised that your large animal vet husband isn't trying to fill Charlie up with mineral oil. That's what they do for horses when things won't go through. I'm not sure about cows.
