Summer Ball and Gibbs


This week I worked on Summer Ball.  I am loving this design.  I am almost finished with page 3!!!  I am going to back to Cinderella's Castle for the upcoming week.  Still waiting on my fabric to get here for my Sistine Chapel project.  Next weekend I plan on playing in my sewing room and going through my floss to see how much of the 669 threads needed that I already have in stock.  I am hoping I have quite a bit.

School starts tomorrow!!! I can't believe that summer is already over and it is time to see all my little darlins' again!  I am looking forward to seeing them just not dealing with all the parent drama's that go with my little ducks.


I had a request to give an update on Gibbs.  You know, I used to post about his little antics and I just haven't done it in a while.   If you recall it was about this time last year that my little Gibbs got a corn cob stuck in his intestines and had to have tummy surgery to get it out.  Last Sunday, Gibbs decided to eat small parts out of different tennis balls.  The next morning he started throwing up and I got a frantic call from my husband because this is how the corn cob drama started.  I immediately called the vet who suggested we wire his mouth shut but it was too late. So she suggested we give him pure pumpkin to make things "flow" more easily and faster.  Hopefully, this would pass through him quickly by his eating the pumpkin.  He loved his pumpkin enriched food....and things all came out great!!!!  He is doing better and no surgery!!!!!  YES!!! Mommy and Daddies wallet is very thankful!!!!  Right now is laying in this position with Bert giving him a bath.

He has been very busy eating sticks and paperbags.  My living room is covered in wood and paperbag pieces. Gotta love him!!!!!

This piece is soooo gorgeous! It is coming along wonderfully! So glad Gibbs is ok.. was just reading about a Corgi who ate a piece of tennis ball and had to have surgery! I will remember the pumpkin for when we suspect Ginger may have eaten a no-no!!
