FNWF

Didn’t get a lot done on Friday night, as my puppy wasn’t feeling the best.  I thought it may be because his hair had grown so much and the summer heat has hit with a vengeance, so I decided to give him his haircut during the evening as it’s cooler…..

……after which I found the culprit that has been making him feel sick….a tick had buried itself in his ear fur…..I’m so glad I checked. After dabbing a bit of antiseptic and Vaseline onto it to smother the tick, I gently pulled, and it released itself.  He is still not 100 percent, but is loads better.

So that took up about 2 hours of stitchy time, but after vacuuming up all that hair, I did manage to get a little bit done…..some work on a Christmas swap gift (so only a little blurry peek!)

…and I started designing another magazine commission (nothing like leaving it till the last minute!)

I’m working some more on it today, so I’ll show progress pictures soon.

Thanks again to our FNWF hosting mumma Chez…..I love our girly nights together.  Have you seen what everyone else got up to?  Worth a visit to check them out!

Hi Wendy, I found you via Cheryll's blog and I have joined the FnwFs for the first time.
I am so sorry to hear about your poor dog-- we have paralysis ticks here and they are nasty little creatures. Do hope he is feeling better.
Looking forward to the next FswF.
