Mailed Quaker RR, finished Hope's Bag


I finished Hope's bag over the weekend. I think it has turned out beautiful. I love the material I found for it. Hope starts her chemo next week and I have had this urgency to get this bag completed. I'm gonna take it to her tomorrow after work.

I have Anna's PS exchange almost ready to ship. Gonna put everything together this evening.

Daisy had to get her shots this afternoon. What an ordeal that was. It took me 20 minutes just trying to catch her, she hides under the bed. Finally caught her, much to her dismay. Poor dear, had a anxiety attack, she shed so much of her fur and she had a fear smell going on. Thank goodness the vet was quick and we were home in under a hour.

My nephew will be stationed in New York. For now. So we are all very happy about that. My cousin was not so lucky, he gets deployed to Iraq in June. Poor Billy.

Everyone have a great day!

Sorry to hear about your cousin going to Iraq and your friend starting chemo. Sounds like you have some stressful things happening to people you love. The bag you made your friend is beautiful, though. I'm sure it will bring her a lot of joy to know she has someone like you to help her through this difficult time.

Hope's bag turned out wonderfully, the fabric looks great with the pattern. I'm sure it will help bring her some comfort having it and knowing you cared enough to make it for her.

Poor Daisy, while Jazmine loves going to the vets the cats all hate it. Hopefully she doesn't have to go again anytime soon.

The kids all look like they were having a great time at Easter hunting the eggs, glad the weather was nice for it. I'll keep your cousin in my thoughts and prayers, Iraq would be a difficult posting.
