Another cold morning

Good Morning everyone and welcome to my new followers!
Love to see new bloggers!

Its cold outside but not snowing (yet) Will spring ever get here!

Quick update on Honey, she is doing very good on the healing of her two broken legs. And she is letting me know she is feeling better every day. She is getting quite tired of being in her kennel all the time and when she does get out she totally goes wild on me. She wants to run and jump but the doctor said not until after 4 weeks of healing. We have gone through 2 Cones of Shame  because she has been chewing on them. I have given her chew toys and bones but she wants that thing off so she can chew her cast off!
Thank you for all your comments and hugs for Honey they were greatly appreciated.

Yesterday I stopped at Micheal's and pick up my Birds of a Feather that I had frame there and it turn out great! Have a look.
Had to take the picture at an angle so I wouldn't get
the flash in the picture.
And the next update I have is of 
Abigail's Birth Sampler
Sorry about the wrinkles, I am so close to being finished that I want to wait until I am done before I give it a good press. I need to back stitch the toys on the bottom of the picture and the Giraffe's head and Abigail's name, date and weight. Don't thing it will be done by this week end when Chrissy and her family come to visit but it will be close.

This will be a short and sweet post because I need to get off this computer and get to work on my taxes, I would like to get them turned in by this Friday. I have them almost done but have been procrastinating  on getting them finished up.
So until next time
Happy Stitching

Blogger :(

Oh my gosh why can't they leave things alone! 
I like to think I am pretty good on a computer and not afraid to try new things,
but this has me stump! I signed up for Bloglovin like others have but I can't get my blog to move over for some reason. I followed the directions and nothing.
I may just keep using blogger  until July and when they shut down I will quite blogging. But then I will miss out on a lot of good reading and support. So I have some time to get this figured out.
What to do, What to do!
I hope everyone else gets it figured out!

Update on Honey

Thank you everyone for all the get well wishes for Honey. I really appreciate them!

Well it's been just over 2 weeks since Honey was hit by a car. We have a daily routine of going outside to potty 4 -5 times and a snack each time she comes in. We have to wrap her front cast in plastic so that it does not get wet while we are out in the snow, then take it off when we come back inside. She can only go out side on a leash but she would love to run and play with our other dog and her companion. I hold her back and make her walk so she doesn't slip and  re break her legs. The last 2 days she has been restless and decided to chew on her cone of shame, Guess what else she decided to chew on. Yep you guessed it!

She had chewed a nice big hole in her wrap, so the vet said to bring her in and they re wrap it and we got another cone for her. So we will see how long this one lasts. ( she even has her chew toys in the kennel with her) The Vet told me she healing nicely and no signs of infections or rubbing sores. She does have some itching where her hair is growing back on her back leg but that is to be expected.

The final thing the Vet said was they would like to see her in this new cast for another 2 weeks. So 2 more weeks with a dog that has spent most of her life outside on the farm running around, and now she has to be  in a kennel in side the house.(except for potty breaks) The trip to the vet must have taken a lot out of her because she is now napping quietly.

I worked on Abigails birth sampler last night and some this morning but this after noon I decided to work on some quilt squares that I started some time ago. More on the both of them later in the week.

Have a great rest of the week
and 
Happy Stitching

My Poor Honey

Oh my goodness I have not blogged since the 24th of February. I have thought about posting several times and never sat down to the computer. I have been busy the last couple of weeks with taking care of one of my furbabies. Honey got hit by a car and ended up with 2 broken legs.
Honey  my 10 month old Red Heeler
This picture was taken on friday March 1st when I picked her up from the vets office. The front leg had a small fracture and  both bones in her back leg were broken and one of the bones was broken in 4 pieces and required a steel plate put in. She is doing awesome and healing quickly. We still have to keep her quite for a couple more weeks to make sure she heals properly.

On the stitching front I have been working on finishing up Abigail's birth sampler. I will post an updated photo in my next post or when I get it finish it up, which ever comes first.

Well not much else going on around here just a little work at the Post Office, a little bit of dog sitting for my brother, a little bit of cleaning the house (I should do more but maybe later) and I lot of waiting on Honey, and a little reading of other blogs so I am off to get caught up on the reading.

Spring is coming!!!!
Happy Stitching
