Bless you, Mary!

Doggy also has heartworm and some very bad teeth.  She was eating really well but quit this morning.  Her surgery for the mass and teeth is tomorrow.  Just found out she is around 14.  The shelter is making the decisions...I might have just let her go. We will keep spoiling her the best we can.

Poor puppy! Thank you for taking her in, Mary.

I'm trying to work with Granddaughter, 12 yrs, by telephone on a knitting project.  I told her it was time for her to make something for ME.

Just took in a foster dog, old, deaf, and mostly blind...and she leaks.  She was just found starving in a ditch with a massive growth on one hip.  The Shelter is trying to close down, and so Paul took her to the Vet on his way home with her.  We should hear today what the shelter and Vet want to do next.  She is so scared and weak.

So glad you get to spend time with your granddaughter, Kathy. Wonderful way to commemorate it too.

My son and granddaughter have been with us since the quarantine began along with their 95 lb dog.  This has been quite an experience.  I now know how the folks on Gilligan's Island must have felt.  The dog and the 3 year old have decided that they like sleeping in Gigi and Papi's bed.  I told Joe, that we are going to need a bigger bed. 

To entertain Caroline, I have been teaching her how to make a string quilt.  I just hope that when she turns 15 that her foot is not as heavy on the peddle as it has been on my sewing machine, or my son will be in trouble.  I have had to jerk my fingers out of the way a couple of times.  She always comes over and plays in my scrap's tote, so I have been letting her pick out which strips she wants next on her blocks.  Not always the combinations I would select, but it is definitely going to be colorful.

I think it will be a really cool way to commemorate the quarantine and I will place a label on the back to commemorate Caroline's first quilt that she helped make.

I have everyone's questionnaires that have signed up so far, Mary. Deadline is March 31. Names will go out on tax day, April 15. Not much longer to wait.

I was finding it difficult to work on my large UFOs so spent my first few days of isolating making gift items, pillowcases, placemats, kitchen towels, fun, ( instant gratification) projects that took my mind off ( outside happenings) for an hour here & there. At some point I need to get back to working on the big stuff but for now small projects make me happy

It is really hard to imagine sending out Holiday boxes.  Maybe when I have my person to think about, I will be inspired.  The reveal is coming soon..if Linda and Kathy are ready??

Mary, it's ok and in Indy's best interest as my recovery time is 6 months to a year. Altho I'm grieving his loss greatly. It was with my consent.
